This is a cozy place on a side street in Waikiki. The name means "little orange" in Italian, but how that relates to the restaurant's cuisine is anyone's guess. Since it's a little difficult to find, a good tip is to call first for directions. The cuisine is regional Italian. The food is great, featuring classic items such as Caesar salad and fresh lobster. The speciality of the house is a pizza prepared with shrimp, Maui onions, and more cheese than you really need.
This small elegant eatery is located in the upscale Beachwalk area of Waikiki. Classy and modern the restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating and a menu that lends an Asian twist on traditional Italian menu. Selections includes Tuna and Bottarga “Peperoncino”, Seared Ahi Tuna and delightful list of delectable desserts. The flavors are simple and tempered for the Asian palate, but the dining experience is certainly much grander than this tiny restaurant.
Mama's Spaghetti House is one of the more popular stops in the ever busy Makai Marketplace at the Ala Moana Shopping Center. The menu is a simple one that features pastas with sauces of all types. The Italian sausage sauce is a long time crowd pleaser and the shrimp Alfredo is pulling in a close second. The service is quick, the portions are generous and the prices are reasonable, especially for a satisfying dinner with the family. Moreover, there is ample parking throughout the shopping center, and pot meal window shopping if you want to avoid the post pasta drag.
