Arancino di Mare Restaurant Review

: The red checkerboard vinyl tablecloth is a tip off that this is casual Italian dining, but executive chef Daisuke Hamamoto still has a few things up his sleeve. To start, try the scallop carpaccio topped with black tobiko, local sea asparagus and a light Champagne vinaigrette. Pastas include the spaghetti ai ricci di mare --- the creamy, briny richness of sea urchin over al dente pasta. Wash it all down with Peroni on tap and be sure to save room for gelato affogato for dessert. For breakfast, choose from a variety of crêpes or opt for a small, fixed menu. The outdoor patio offers front row seats to the Waikiki pedestrian scene as sun-drenched passersby head to and from the beach.

Four cheese pizza
by duchess1 on Thu Sep 06, 2012 11:48 pm
 
The first time we were here we had a great pasta dish and then we looked at the table next to us and saw the best looking cheese pizza we had ever seen, so of course the next visit included that pizza and it was so wonderful that the first place we want to visit in Waikiki is here. The wines are also very good and so is the service. Come early or the lines are long but it is worth the wait.
