“Take out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We were staying close by (which isn't hard as its in a great location) and found this little gem! We felt like a night in and not room service so called Arancino for take away food. My husband has the pizza with shrimp/prawns and i had the lasagna, they were both great! Definitely worth a visit !

“Wonderful Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Arancino is always busy at dinner time, so reservations are a must. I walked by one night with a line out the door to this small restaurant. The next day when some friends were coming to meet us they recommended Arancino. We called early in the day and they were totally booked for the evening. The suggested we come in about 1.5hrs early and ask for standby. They took our number to call us when space was available (so we did not have to sit and wait - nice). The food and wine was absolutely marvelous. Everyone ate everything (wished the plates were a little larger) and ended with some tasty desserts ( I had the Tiramisu). Totally recommend, but make reservations.

“Great Italian!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Took my kids here and we had a really yummy meal. Pizzas are thin based and delicious as was our pasta. Want to go back to try other pasta dishes especially the lasagne which looked amazing. Very accommodating of my daughters egg/nut allergies. Lovely glass of chianti to wash it all down.

“Excellent Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We visited Arancino without a reservation and were lucky to only to have to wait about half an hour in the bar before we were seated. However once seated we were served very quickly and did not have to wait long for our meal to arrive. The service and food were both great and would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone lucky enough to be visiting Honolulu!

“make reservations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Would have loved to eat here but unfortunately when we arrived at 4:45pm there was already a line up and when they opened at 5 they were not taking walk ins for over 2 hours. So, if u want to eat here I highly recommend reserving well in advance.
