Our family visit Il Lupino as one of us was craving some pasta and the outdoor seating area looked really cozy and inviting. The dining area outdoors was really nice in the evening, with lots of tiki torches and the gardens outside the hotel property...More

Now if the Hawaiian / Polynesian influenced breakfasts are getting to you, try Il Lupino for a more traditional breakfast if you are from Australia. If you are not up to a huge size breakfast or one that breaks the bank, order from their mini...More

Had a breakfast & 2 dinners there and received consistently good quality food. Particularly recommend the seafood and seafood pasta dishes (lamb rack also good). Good selection of wines and nice outdoor setting - service a bit variable, depending on your waiter.

Not cheap but hard to find good food in Waikiki and this did not disappoint. We tried the bruschetta, a chilli pasta and a creamy carbonara and all tasted fabulous. Definitely worth a good meal

It's an OK restaurant for breakfast . Confusing. Enteren the staff as who serve you or not . Price are ok but for an Italian restaurant I was expecting the coffee to be much better ! The bagel .... hard as a rock

We were fortunate (by booking ahead) to get an outside table which was a very pleasant dining experience watching the passing pedestrian traffic, Food was a good variety of seafood and pasta - we shared a Calamari Fritti to start and both had the Snapper.

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!
