Hawaii Mom Blog: Dinner at Cino

Dinner at Cino

Market Fish

About a month ago, I stopped by Cino for drinks and fell in love with their Mexican coffee cocktail, the Carajillo. Forward a month and I finally had dinner with friends at this lively and trendy Italian restaurant located in Ward on the street level of the 'A'ali'i condos. Fun fact, CINO is a sister restaurant to CafĂ© Duck Butt, DB Grill, and Mad Bene.

This time I started with the Laguna Rosa. It was light and refreshing, but I prefer the wow that came with the Carajillo. My friend and I shared the Charred Spanish Octopus and the Crispy Rice which were both tasty. I ordered the Herb Pappardelle for my entree, but had a bite of my friend's Rigatoni Bolognese and wished I had ordered that instead. The Herb Pappardelle is served with a wild boar ragu that was tasty, but I liked the tender and flavor of the veal, beef, and pork bolognese more.  

It was a very busy night, but our server was great and attentive. We sat in the section closer to the outside seating and it was pretty noisy (us included) so if you are looking for a more intimate setting, recommend you request a table closer to the bar.
