    The food was lovely - fresh, inventive, and flavorful. It's a bit pricey, but nothing out of the ordinary for a fine dining experience that features many imported products. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. The interior is very well done with a lovely bar; the space feels warm and inviting (many tables close together). However, the noise level was a bit high, so we opted to sit outside. For younger crowds this might not be an issue but I was dining with an older party and seemed to matter to them. I would definitely return.

    Food was amazing. The restaurant is lively and loud though. Great for a fun evening, not great for deep conversation. The bar is great and the specialty cocktail list has some gems. The wine list is kind of sparse.

    How to do it right at CINO: Order a few signature cocktails. Start with the delicate smokey Spanish octopus. Palate cleanse lilikoi sorbet and caprese. Savor Uni pasta creamy umami flavors. Pork chop cooked medium. House made tiramisu. Cino’s dining experience impeccable. With the boutique ambience to curated music. Applause to the Chef, staff, Dylan our server, & Justin. My family thanks you for making our dinner an honorable night for my grandma.

    Not a great experience, but maybe it’s because they’re new. Food was mediocre and definitely not worth the price. We mentioned to our server that the steak was a little tangy and cold (it wasn’t sauced but had a weird taste). She just said, “oh yea that’s just the taste, but how is everything else?” We were seated outside. We felt forgotten as did another table. It also started to rain, they moved the umbrella away from our table (or for what lil that covered us) to cover a couple (maybe they were VIP?) . We thought they were going to move a different umbrella over us, but didn’t. Left my family and another family to bare the weather. I guess that’s okay because of passing showers. Maybe the experience would’ve been better if we were seated inside? But I don’t think it would’ve made the food any better. Well try again another time.

    Cino offers an exquisite dining experience. The charred octopus and pork chop are must-try delights, showcasing culinary expertise. The ambiance sets a romantic tone, making it an ideal spot for a memorable date night. The service is impeccable, adding to the overall satisfaction. Highly recommended for those seeking a delightful blend of Italian flavors and a charming atmosphere.

    Second time to Cino, can’t wait to go back. Service was excellent, attentive without being intrusive. Food: kampachi criudo, special seafood ravioli and 8 oz. Filet were superb. The twice baked potato was really good. Highly recommend.

    We ordered the whole fish of the day, Branzino, which was perfectly done with a nice chimichurri sauce. Delicious. The veal chop was a vary large chop, unfortunately it came with no sides. A little pasta or a veggie would have been nice. The synthesis cabernet was good, but at $19.00 a glass was pricey as a bottle can be found for $45.00 Carissa was a phenomenal waitress. Attentive without being obtrusive.

    Nothing was extraordinary. I hoped our server would be a little more helpful about their menu. The quality and specialty needed to match their price. So many restaurants are out there, and I do not go to this restaurant again.

    This was our first time there. Service was great. Food was delicious. Fritto Misto was especially good. The veal Osso Bucco was to die for. It did get a little loud as several larger groups came in to sit down and they were a bit rowdy.

    Very mainland-esque restaurant, not typical to see in Hawaii. Food tastes above average, and ambience is classy. The twice baked potato was the star of the show, and lives up to its name. Other than that, you will be satisfied with the other menu items. I would like to note that it can be very cold inside. I recommend bringing a light jacket for men, and cover up for female guests. Thank you Cino for a wonderful dinner.

    If looking for a place with a nice ambiance, this is not it. We were a party of three and I had difficulty hearing each other. Food is delicious but took so long. Table next to us got served first when we were seated ahead of them. Very small portion from appetizer, to main entree and dessert.

    Food is wonderful. Downside is my party was seated 40 minutes after our reservation time. We were informed the party at our table had already paid and were just sitting and chatting so the restaurant would kindly ask them to go if they didn’t leave within 5 minutes because the next party was here and waiting. Well that didn’t happen and we were left waiting long after our reservation. They did comp out first round of drinks for the trouble so we appreciated that!

    I had a reservation. When we arrived, the hostess said it would be “a while” before any tables inside opened up. We immediately noticed the extremely HIGH noise level in the restaurant, so we said okay to sitting outside. (Otherwise I would have asked where our reserved table was). Outdoor tables have poor lighting and we had to use flashlights on our phones to see the menu. Drinks, appetizers and entrees took very long to arrive. They were mediocre and on the smaller side for the high price point. The waitress was pleasant. Total time spent there was 2 hours.

    This was one of our best dining experiences. The decor of Cino is lush and modern, making the diner feel like they could be in a swanky bar in San Francisco. The service was attentive and the food was delicious with the best tiramisu we have ever had. We went for a girl’s night out but we plan to return for a date night with our men very soon. It is our new favorite restaurant!

    Good vibes and trendy but the portions are small and over priced. Staffs are friendly and nice but a lot of items on the menu were not available. They should have been removed from the menu. We ordered then back that the items are not available after. Oysters, butter fish, and asparagus… etc. disappointed.
