The only issue we had was the wines all tasted rancid. Like they were stored wrong or opened and sat for too long. I rejected the second wine choice after a sip and they still charged us

Due to Covid, we haven’t seen each other for over a year. It was nice to get together with good food and service! We were able to catch up with each other’s family. Thank you !

Club and penne bolognese meatballs were both superb. Creme brûlée is the BEST.

Service (Nicole) was outstanding. Vaccination and ID cards were efficiently checked before Ruscello opened.

Miss the poke, but will definitely return.

Noticeably smaller portions of brussell sprouts in the order, maybe 6 whole at most. Mushroom ravioli seemed different in taste.

Service was fantastic and taste was great; one disappointing thing is that that we came to dine because we saw an appetizer very recently advertised on social media, but that appetizer was not available when we arrived.

Mu hubby and I had a date night dinner last night at Ruscello. We had a great table that was socially distanced from anyone else. Our waiter was excellent and the food was top notch as usual. For the month of September the chef is featuring entrees made with grapes. Hubby had the opakapaka special and said it was excellent. I stuck with my usual Caesar salad with a salmon fillet and even got anchovies this time! Rated the value as four stars because the bill for two of us, with an appetizer (Brussels sprouts) and one glasss of wine came to $70. I am glad they are still in operation, so I guess that's the price to pay.

Prices have gone up & portions have reduced. Still very tasty but can't eat at Ruscello as often as I'd like to because of prices & portions.

Had another great dinner at Ruscello... and felt very Covid-secure as they followed all the right protocols. Food was good as ever and the wait staff was excellent. We ate outside on the "patio" for the first time - and it was delightful. A very urban feel for Honolulu.

I crave that pistachio crusted chicken salad. It is my favorite salad anywhere, ever! Was a bit cold (chilly) in the restaurant, but that could be because we were there at 130 ish. Daughter had French dip with fries. Very good. Fries a bit over cooked, but overall terrific. Waitress (sorry forgot her name) was spot on

Enjoy the company and lunch was on point. There wasn’t any disruption from our server. She was polite and notice she would refill drinks as we were chatting on the table and really didn’t notice, which was great. Definitely bringing friends and clients in the future.
