    This was perfect for our situation. We had been in Hawai’i for two weeks, and had visited three islands. We flew to Honolulu from Kuaii late afternoon, and we were exhausted. The atmosphere was perfect, laid back, nice view outside of the skyline and water. The host, the server, and all other personnel were very friendly. The food was good, and the wine by the glass menu was a nice surprise, as the wines offered were a better quality than I would expect to see for a casual eating place. It was the perfect spot for us, and I would go back again if the circumstances presented themselves.

    On Wednesdays, 50% off on bottles of wine was an opportunity to try different items from the menu. Made the reservations and specifically requested a corner table. The request was fulfilled; the restaurant's best table. First time for my guests; they plan to return and take advantage of the Wednesday 50% promotion.

    The only thing that was an issue was the timing of the food. We were still eating our salads when they brought the entrees. The dinner sat while we finished the first course and it made for a very crowded table.

    If there is one word as to the reason why Ruscello is one of our preferred places to dine, it cwould be consistency in every area. Service is always above attentive. The menu and dishes are always delicious, and the ambience is inviting. Ruscello’s is perfect for date night, family dinner, girls shopping lunch or celebration!

    Food is consistent. Having the option to book a reservation online is nice. Bussers work incredibly hard and diligently. What is unfortunate is that I have reserved to celebrate birthdays here twice. I stopped to ask the front hosts to please inform the server. Both times, the server did NOTHING. So incredibly disappointed that the restaurant is not able to honor such a simple but meaningful request.
