Omg I love Italian food, & as you know it's the red sauce that makes it or breaks it, & they nailed it...so good! Try the lasagna roll with mushroom marinara sause with melty cheese on top, yummo. No shortage of sauce. This place has a food of the month kinda thing (like cheesefest or garlicfest) so u never get tired of the menu. Service is always super friendly & they keep up 95% of the time, even when busy. They even have kids discounts or free or something one day. Fair prices & if u wanna get hammered they got a $9 jug for 1/2 off wine day that serves 10 glasses, lol, not high quality wine, but it gets the Job done.

I have cravings for Amina's & have followed them from Kailua to town. Large portions, fair prices. I have always said what makes it or breaks an Italian place is their red sauce, winner! My favorite: Spinach ravioli over marinara spaghetti, the combination calzone, vegetarian pasta with "rosa sauce (mix of red/Alfredo)," & the pizza gooey with cheese. More of a take out place/just a few friends as it is small, so call ahead as everything is made to order by the owner. She's so nice.
Authentic Italian experience where time waiting for food is spent conversing and enjoying friends and family. Portions are comparable to restaurants across Italy. Savor the "transported to Rome" trip through food - you won't regret it or forget it. Sabrina's is on our must do list each time we come to Hawaii.
