This Il Lupino Trattoria & Wine Bar is located on the first level of Building B of the Royal Hawaiian Center. There are certainly more than a few restaurants for them to compete with and to show Il Lupino Trattoria & Wine Bar up. Certainly the ambiance does that, but everything else just seemed a bit above average. If we... More

Well it looks like a nice place with great surroundings. Stopped in late afternoon and sat outside at the bar. We sat and sat. There were a few people at the end of the bar finishing up eating and they were also just sitting there. No one came by and even acknowledged us. Walked around to get their attention, no... More

We were so hungry after a long flight and late check in to the Sheraton. We found this place right outside, and it was a good option. The fish was fresh and delicious. Service was a bit slow, but friendly.

My group of friends and I had dinner here one night. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was amazing as well as the atmosphere. We had the lasagne and the spaghetti meat balls. The cocktails here are also amazing. Highly recommend it. Very close to our hotel, directly opposite the Sheraton Waikiki.

I tried this place twice, once for a light dinner wedding soup, salad, then a second chance at lunch. The food does not serve Italian recipes. The Italian wedding soup was a beef based broth with flavorless meatballs. They took it off the check, so I thought maybe we would try again for lunch. This time a standard pizza with... More

Not impressed at all. We went for breakfast..warm coffee, toast cold, poached eggs almost boiled well done, little sauce on Benedict and service very slow considering they were not busy. Find elsewhere for breakfast

The waffles, bacon and eggs were tasty. The staff was good. Sitting outside for breakfast was pleasant. We also got to see Hula lessons being given to tourists. Free entertainment!

We walked to Il Lupino one evening and had bottle of wine with dinner. I felt the food was only average and not justifying the premium prices here. Ambiance also was only average also. Waiter was friendly and did his best. Nonetheless, I would not return on another visit to Waikiki area.

For an afternoon lunch, we tried this Italian restaurant. I had a large Ceasar Salad and my wife had a burger, both of which were good. Service was slow and my wife's burger had to be returned twice before it was prepared as ordered. They offered us a free dessert, which was appreciated.

Description
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!
