We were seated at a very bright table outside. The inside dining room was even brighter with crying children. We asked to change our table but were told the empty tables had been "requested". Drinks were brought promptly. Caprese Salad was good except you could easily miss the the balsamic caviar. Grilled caesar was also good. Dinner was served immediately after the appetizer plates were removed. Pasta with spicy seafood was good but not spicy. Requested hot pepper flakes to rectify. Bolognese was very good. Children crying throughout the meal. Maybe take out is the answer.

料理の質は悪くはないですが高すぎる
そこまでの価値はないと思います
あと、料理が出てくるのがやたら遅くて一つの量がかなり少ないので時間がたってお腹がいっぱいになってしまうパターンです

The whole dining time was too long. We almost waited 40-50 minutes to receive our entrees. The Keiki meals and appetizers came pretty quick. The server seemed that he didn’t really care or check our orders.

My pasta con vongole was bland, wasn’t served with small
clam fork with which to remove clams from shells and the portion was significantly smaller than Cafe Sistina and Baci Bistro. Disappointing. Won’t return

Great service and food. Self parking limited. Easy to make reservation on Open Table. 3-course fixed menu is a good way to order salad/appetizer, entrée and dessert at a fair price.

Great service on both occasions we dined in Arancino. Food was delicious and the atmosphere was great, I felt like I was in Italy. Knowledgable staff who were really informative about the tasting menu and wine pairings, definitely worth a visit

We were totally unlucky due to the big Silver age people party. They delayed the arrival and extended over the time so that our reservataion time was overrided. We thought Arantino should manage big party as well as existing reservation professionally. By the way, the service and food were so excellent.

A few misses with miscommunication with the waiter but could see waiter was trying to give excellent service but English isn't his first language. Fresh clams were delicious and hands down the favorite pasta dish was the Pappardelle all Bolognese. It is one of the best pasta dishes I've had, very flavorful and generous with the wagyu beef.

My favorite of their 3 locations. The setting and accordion player gives that Italy atmosphere.
The lobster bisque has to be the best on the island. Service is alway excellent. The food also excellent & considering its at the Kahala, prices are reasonable.

ワイキキ8日間からカハラホテルに移動したのでこちらでのディナー。ハワイのレストランの中で1番良かったです。雰囲気もサービスもお料理も最高でした。アラカルトで朝採りプティ有機野菜、ウニのパスタ、オーナーお気に入りのピザ、ティラミスを頂きましたが全てがお洒落で美味しかったので大満足です。
パンも2つ付いていたので2人でこの量は多かったかも知れませんが全て美味しく頂きました。
明日にでもまた行きたいと思えるお店です。
滞在中絶対にもう一度行きたいと思ってます。
