“so good we returned 3 more times”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

This restaurant was so good we ate there 3 times. First we had their beautiful crepes for breakfast, light and refreshing which was a change from the large and heavy breakfasts which are so common in the USA. 2nd meal was lobster with pasta which was mouthwatering. 3rd meal was at the bar having a variety of antipasta followed by a pizza. It was so refreshing to find TRUE italian restaurant with food of great quality. it was as good as the food we had recently had on a holiday in Italy. Also they served true coffee with my favourite brand Illy which we were able to have at the bar when in need of real coffee.

“Italian food in Waikiki....absolutely!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

While it seems a bit of a stretch to find good italian fare in the middle of Waikiki, it's absolutely possible with Arancino. My husband (always hankering for Italian food), my daughter and I tried this little gem after it had been recommended by several coworkers. While we didn't realize it before arriving (with reservations), it was restaurant week, so they may have been busier than usual, but they were packed! Still the food was exceptional, and the service was perfect. It's a small, intimate setting. My husband and daughter ordered the restaurant week offering, which was clam fettuccini, which was absolutely delicious. I had the melanzane alla parmigiana with the insalata rucola con prosciutto, again, both were top notch delicious.

“Perfect sauce!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

The spaghetti and meatballs was truly a carnival for the taste buds. It was a balance of tomato and cheese, and maybe a tiny bit of cream. So yummy!

“A little pricey for crepes”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Arancino's was very convenient for us since we stayed at Marriott. We decided to try breakfast one morning. The staff was great ~very friendly! They only serve crepes in the morning so the menu was pretty
limited. My husband had the Pancetta and potato crepe which was delicious! I had the arugula, tomato, prosciutto and it was good too. The drink bar has fruit juices and coffee (and maybe tea, not sure) and is $5.95/person. So total it was almost a $50 breakfast and for that price we couldn't had the buffet at Kuhio grill around the corner!

“Great Dining Experience!!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

Googled restaurants near Park Shore hotel and this one popped up, it's in the marriott hotel. Long wait but worth it. The ambiance and service along with great tasting food, makes for a great dinner experience. Arancino is so good we went back another night. Probably the best lasagna I've had and the lobster bisque was really good too. Prices are reasonable as well. The spaghetti blue crab was really good as well.
