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!
Amazing meal! Much thanks to the service team, chefs and managers!
We loved every course in our five and four course meals! Especially the veggie salad with warm butter and Uni pasta!
So much awesome food. You can’t go wrong eating here!
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.
Service and food was great
Not good selection of menu , no good changes or new signature dishes since last 3years.
Ariana is a great server. She had great recommendations for us as this was a first time experience for a few of us.
Top tier service, highest quality food, ideal atmosphere (I felt like I was on the med). Highly recommended!
The taste and service were excellent!
I will come again!
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
Staff and management were very friendly and attentive. Food was great.
This was our first time to Arancino. It has an elegant but casual setting. Everyone was gracious and attentive. All the dishes we ordered were exceptionally flavorful.
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.
Incredible food and service on a beautiful day in Hawaii, must be heaven.
The staff was very good！
Perfect except for the delay in serving due to crowdedness at prime time
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!!
Great presentation, did 4 course pri fixe dinner. Delicious!
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 ;-)
Food was superb and service by Michelle was wonderful!!
We felt so welcomed and comfortable.
Excellent place for special occasions. Great food and great service; enjoy a quiet walk on the beach after dinner.
This is My favorite Italian restaurant and love to go there for special occasions. Good food and excellent service ❣️
Great service from start to finish. Food great. People nice with smiles. Thank you
Treated very well for our anniversary dinner here
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!
