Great Italian restaurant tucked into a side street right off Waikiki. Prices are up a bit.. but the food and service is worth it. From the pizza, to the lobster bisque to the Caprese.....it was all top notch. VERY attentive service. It was a busy night and they still worked us in right away. Recommend for a special night.

The queues for a table is an indication of the quality of the food,the service, and the ambience. The menu range is as expected, the price is the same. We obtained a table by going early - the waiters had just started then too! It is high class Italian food.

In November we walked from Embassy Suites to this nearby restaurant after a long day of touring. We were going to go to the one on Kalakaua Ave but too tired to walk that far as it was rated higher on Trip Advisor. We had a nice dinner of spaghetti & meatballs. It was average tasting & convenient. Nothing highly... More

Amazing pasta and pizza with a few vegetarian options. Crafty cocktails with a lot of thought put into them. The bread was incredible. Big portions. Amazing service!

Camila was my friendly, happy & knowledgable waitress from Brazil. I ordered crepes two breakfasts in a row-both the salmon and panecetta. Wish I was staying 5 more days to try them all-yes, they're THAT delicious. I am told the mushroom risotto prepared @ the table is a work of art--a very large portion to be shared priced at $30....

Good food (the Lasagna is HUGE). My only gripe is they don't do reservations past 5:15pm and after that, there is a long queue waiting for tables. A testament to how popular the restaurant is, especially with Japanese tourists. Pricey wines and tables are extremely close to one another. But if you want Italian, this is pretty authentic.

Great little Trattoria located just outside the front doors of the Kahala Resort. Had a wonderful lunch; shared a yummy Margerita Pizza, Caesar salad and glasses of wine. Service was exceptional and the food was outstanding.

Very creative and well made drinks at the bar. Pizza is awesome and worth the premium price since they use legit ingredients. Apps are very small portions as are the salads (also pricey) and entrees are just okay. Outdoor section is set up well and you get sunset views.

Arancino has a simple formula for success; very good food, good service and reasonable prices. We went (twice) on a previous trip 4 yrs ago. It's still a cute little trattoria in a side street 100m from the beach. Plastic red and white check table cloths. Always a queue (it's small) but worth the wait. Pizza and pasta - home... More

We love Arincino, this small Trattoria just off the main strip. Food is excellent, really pasta or pizza are the choices, but if a high standard.Service has always been great, friendly and attentive. Like most of Waikiki, its first come first in, recommend arriving by about 6 and listing your name, the wait will be inside 30 minutes. It's very... More
