Owner/chef Sergio Mitrotti decorated the walls of this restaurant with original murals. Marble tables and stone floors create an elegant setting for Mitrotti's reproduction of Michelangelo's Creation Panel from the Sistine Chapel (thus, Cafe Sistina). The menu includes such dishes as Lobster Ravioli (with bay shrimp, sun dried tomatoes and radicchio in a vermouth cream sauce, $15.50). Vegetarians should try the Fettucine del Frate. An excellent selection of Italian and California wines may be ordered by the glass.
The murals were absolutely fabulous...the food was the best Italian I've had on the island at a great price...a touch of Italy right here...I've lived on the island for years and just stumbled apon this gem...what a treat!!!! A great place to dine with friends and share a bottle of wine...

I have been dining here for over ten years on a regular basis and I have never had a less than great meal or service. So you can think I am either a complete moron or I am smart enough to stick with a good thing.
It is a short cab ride out of Waikiki, but it is a world away from the tourist experience.
I would say come be treated as one of the locals and I know you will return many times and think fondly of this part of your Hawaii vacation.
Failure to try one of Maurice's locally made sorbets or gelatos would be a crime?
I have been living on hawaii for the last three years, and Cafe Sistina has been a long time favorite of mine. It is one of the only places I can bring my Italian Fiancee, who is overly critical of Italian restaurants.
