Whenever we stay at The Royal Hawaiian - we always save a spot for dinner at Il Lupino. It's a very short walk from the hotel and the food is wonderful. The wine list is extensive and generally well priced - it can be pricey....More

Ordered a simple bacon and eggs. Two poached eggs both hard and one small piece of over cooked bacon. Topped with a strawberry as a garnish? All for $18. Go elsewhere.

WE were in Honolulu and visited Il Lupino twice in four days for Happy Hour. The menu is large, the prices are reasonable and the food is excellent. Pair that with a wide selection of both wine and beer and you have a perfect combination....More

We booked a table for 5 of us this time. The courses were well timed and cooked as expected. Service was good but we have seen better in past trips. Highly recommend this place when you visit Waikiki.

Welcome to Il Lupino Trattoria and Wine Bar, created by famed New York restaurateur Wolfgang Zwiener, serving delicious, authentic Italian cuisine in a relaxing, yet sophisticated atmosphere, featuring indoor and outdoor bar and dining and a Salumeria featuring imported Italian cheeses, hand-cut meats that pair superbly with our wines by the glass list. 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. Featuring wines from around the world our award winning selections enhance our cuisine and your experience. Focused primarily on Italian and Domestic selections we have something for every wine enthusiast!
