Service was exceptional. Although additional $30 I paid for truffles on my Uni pasta had no flavor

My son and daughter-in-law shared the tomahawk steak with accompaniments ... boyfriend and I got to share a slice ... it was tender & delicious!

It's always nice to have dinner at Arancino at the Kahala. You can expect excellent service and consistantly good food. A bit disappointed that the baby romaine ceasar was taken off the menu
because of issues with romaine.

Pasta and pizza were very good. However our $120 tomahawk steak was about 40% fat. Definitely not worth that kind of $$. Its an Italian restaurant, go for the pizza & pasta. Save your $ for protein somewhere else. Service & ambiance were perfect. I would recommend

Ambiance was nice for lunch. Service started off okay then dwindled until the manager had to assist in making things right. The server was nice and later apologized for his inattention. Not your typical Italian restaurant but the menu has unique offerings. The menu is seasonal so it would be best to check ahead of time to see if what yu want will be available.

ディナーで訪れました。tギャラリアからタクシーで2000円強、20分くらいでした。アクセスは悪いかもしれませんが、ご飯も美味しいし、サービスもピカイチで、行く価値のあるおみさだと思います。アランチーノは何店舗かありますが、カハラのアランチーノは落ち着いていて、高級感のある雰囲気です。生うにのクリームパスタは最高です、また行きたい!

Celebrated a delayed Christmas dinner with close friends. Was our first time and found the dinner a success. The service was excellent and attentive. Food and presentation was wonderful. Live accordian music was a bit loud and difficult to hear our guests. Our guests had a teen son and so glad he was able to order a pizza! The pasta was perfectly prepared al dente. Delicious. Ended our meal with dessert and Illy coffee (the best). Well done!

There were three of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! For me, I wish there was a meat dish included in the pre fixe menu but my osso bucco was wonderful! Michelle (our server) was outstanding!!

雰囲気は素晴らしい。
初めてのハワイでしたが、市街地とは全く異なる雰囲気のカハラ地区らしさが(良くも悪くも)色濃く出ているのかなあ、と感じました。
料理はとても美味しかったです。
スタッフの対応も良かったです。
雰囲気もとても良かったです。
ただ、ドレスアップしたアジア人がテラス席に通され、ショートパンツの西洋人が奥に通されたことには、これが、カハラスタイルか?と勘繰ってしまいました(真偽のほどは定かではありませんが、事実としては存在しました)
繰り返しますが、市街地とは全く異なる空間でした。

I love almost everything about this restaurant ... except the lighting. The way its arranged you are either s (luckily) seated under the trellis with indirect ambient light from the fairy lights strung through the trellis, or under a ceiling with very harsh and bright direct downlight. If you are seeing a shadow on your head while reading your menu, the lights are too bright.

This is unfortunately the case in many restaurants these days, even those that are "fine dining" offer the ambiance of a lunch room or dentist office. I suggest someone research "indirect" lights and dim the overheads, it would go along way to smoothing out the "five-star" dining experience!

But food is great, service is great. Next time I will insist on a better table or dine before the sun sets ;-)

コースとアラカルトを迷ってると伝えたら、パスタを迷ってるメニューと変えてもいいと言っていただきました。
混雑時は少しお料理やお酒の提供に時間がかかりましたが、全体的には気配りをかんじました。ただ、雨が降るとオープンエアの席が吹き込みで濡れるのでそこはマイナスてんでした。

Wait staff nice. LLLoooong wait for our meal, but not for everyone. Couple next to us came in and got a pizza and dessert while we were waiting for main course after salad. Without notice, they substituted mixed greens for the grilled romaine Caesar -- a poor choice bc greens didn't hold up to the heavy creamy dressing. Good selection of pizza, but not pasta. Menu very limited on vegetables in any dish with nothing for vegans. Beachfront hotel, but restaurant has view of parking lot.

I always enjoy entertaining guests at Arancino. Everything I voted outstanding is true...it’s a very nice restaurant with a relaxing ambiance that is away from Waikiki!
