We went for breakfast and was very disappointed. The avocado toast was soggy, the poached eggs under done, watery and tasted of vinegar. The only good thing was the coffee and service. Sorry but won't be visiting again.

We went here with a large family group on a Saturday night. It was late and there wasn't many patrons there, but we still had to wait for a table, and wait for a waiter, and wait for menus... you get the picture. However, the food is very good. I had spaghetti with one large meatball, which was excellent .... More

We were looking for somewhere not crowded to have dinner and spotted this restaurant tucked away in the mall. The service was excellent and our meals first class ,the wine list is extensive. we found a very nice white wine from Puglia -well priced. If you want very good italin this is a place not to be missed.

Haven't been here for a while but was a little disappointed. The Acai bowl was tasty but lacking in fresh fruit, mainly acai and granola. The cappuccino was mainly frothy milk with barely a shot of coffee at the bottom. My partner's poached egg was stone cold. Pricier than most so needs to step it up.

We sat at the bar because if their early happy hour but we glad that was the trigger because we would have not had the pleasure to meet their bartender, Tim, who treated us as VIP's and the food which was delicious, complements to the chef. Will definitely coming back in October.

We came here for breakfast and was met by an unpleasant hostess who acted like she did not want to be there. Despite the patio only being utilized for breakfast and being half full, our food took a painfully long time to arrive. The food itself was average. Our server was actually pleasant and did her job well, so no... More

As above. and we tried to attract servers attention with no luck. Table close by was having a similar disappointing evening as we were. We paid and left. Not a question why our food was not consumed.

The best thing I've tried. The combination of Marsala gravy, combo of meat-beef, pork and veal topped with an egg, sitting on a plate of rice, you need to try it.

While growing up in Europe, Wolfgang Zwiener discovered his passion for true Italian cuisine. In Italy, the locals would affectionately call him "Il Lupino", meaning "Little Wolf". It became his dream to open an Italian restaurant that would offer all his favorite dishes from Italy. That dream came to fruition in December 24th, 2010, when Wolfgang and his son, Peter, proudly opened their flagship Il Lupino Trattoria and Wine Bar at the Royal Hawaiian Center, in the heart of Waikiki. They hope you will enjoy the delicious Italian food created with love, dedication and passion. You might even meet Wolfgang himself in the restaurant while you are visiting. Pasta is prepared daily fresh and all our product comes directly from the Island. Lustful creations incorporating the fresh local seasonal produce, imported Italian cheeses, hand-cut meats and a variety of seafood accented with hand-made pastas. Our team is committed to exceeding expectations as they delight and satisfy while creating a memorable dining experience.
