Fodor's Expert Review Arancino di Mare

$$$ Waikiki and Diamond Head Italian

Three locations in town offer fresh seafood, hand-trimmed beef, pastas cooked to order, handmade pizza and bread, homemade desserts, and meats and cheeses imported from Italy. Customer favorites include spaghetti pescatore (with shrimp, calamari, mussels, and clams) and a pizza topped with shrimp and Maui onions. This, the flagship location, features an open terrace with a view of the beach; the original Beachwalk location (Arancino on Beachwalk) is the smallest and most casual of the three; and the newest location at the Kahala Resort (Arancino at the Kahala) is a bit more upscale.
