“Had a great Italian meal”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

Small restaurant on Beachwalk. You may have to wait for seating, but the wait will be worth it. Excellent tasting sauce. And, after you wait for your table, you will be happy to know that you are not rushed through your meal.

Service is very attentive. A great little place.

“Dependably good!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

We were in Waikiki for a week and went to Arancino's an amazing three times. The restaurant was usually busy, meaning that we had to wait 15 minutes or so for a table. That it was busy reflected the fact that the food was very good and that it was great value. We had different versions of pasta each time and always were happy with the tastes. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was very pleasant. If you want a good Italian meal and do not want to pay and arm and a leg, you might want to visit this restaurant.

“Worth the wait to get in”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Portions more than adequate. Gave us extra plates and spoons without our asking. Very accommodating with our 3 little ones and our 2 strollers. Everything was great.

“Good Pizza”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Small location that can only hold about 25 people total in the place.

Great service by waiter and food is ok.

Price is not too bad. Paid 24 for a meat lovers pizza, average pasta is about 23 also.

Not a must see but definitely somewhere to try if you have time .

“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.
