Excellent food and warm hospitality are two things that Il Lupino Trattoria & Wine Bar promises its guests. Found on the street level of Royal Hawaiian Center, the eatery serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, providing customers with ample opportunities to satisfy their Italian cuisine cravings.
While lunch offers light fare — think salads and paninis — and dinner welcomes pizza, pasta and meat-centric dishes like Veal Chop ($55), Filet Mignon ($50) and Lamb Chop ($42), Il Lupino’s breakfast deserves equal amounts of the spotlight.
On the fruity side of things, there’s an açaí bowl ($18) with fresh berries, Kauai’s Anahola Granola, bananas and local honey.
Meanwhile, the Buttermilk Pancakes ($15) are a classic brekky that will surely prompt a good day. It comes with two pancakes that are topped with bananas, seasonal berries, whipped cream and a choice of quality syrup.
Fans of eggs can opt for one of Il Lupino’s many Benedict plates — Classic ($19), which includes Canadian bacon, tomatoes, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on an English muffin with potatoes on the side, Lobster ($33) or Smoked Salmon ($28).
Il Lupino is currently offering dine-in, takeout and delivery. For more information, visit illupino.com or check out the biz on Instagram (@illupino).
