A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: SPAGHETTI ALLA SCOGLIO ($36)
With three locations on Oahu, Arancino Ristorante Italiana has served as a reliable and favorite location for hungry patrons to dine on authentic Italian cuisine.
Arancino on Beachwalk and Arancino di Mare at Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa specialize in serving gourmet Napoli-style dishes with ingredients imported from Italy, and locally sourced seafood and produce. Meanwhile, a trip to Arancino at The Kahala Hotel & Resort offers up tasty modern twists to its classic Italian cuisine. This location also makes its dishes with a combination of fine Italian-imported ingredients and products from Hawaii.
Diners love going to Arancino for a variety of Italian delights from pastas and pizzas to charcuterie boards and desserts. Plus, it’s not a true Italian meal without a fine glass of wine. Each of Arancino’s elevated eateries present an extensive wine collection that complete the experience.
What’s more, Arancino at the Marriott has a breakfast menu filled with bites to give your day a bright start. A selection of Italian breakfast crepes take the spotlight on this morning menu, but diners may also dig into other creations from its “Breakfast in Bread” list. For instance, the Panino Con Affettato e Uova is a true winner featuring local Waimana TKG Eggs, mortadella ham, prosciutto, salami, arugula and fresh mozzarella cheese.
DID YOU KNOW?
Ever wonder how spaghetti got its name? Well, it is plural for the Italian word spaghetto (also spago), which means “thin string” or “twine.” Arancino is happy to serve customers many spaghetti variations — there’s something for every palate.
WHERE TO GO
Find this dish exclusively at Arancino di Mare, its Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa location.
Also swimming in this lovely sea of flavor are cuts of octopus and calamari. The entire dish is sauteed in an irresistible garlic tomato sauce.
IT’S A ‘SHELL’-EBRATION
Everyone loves a good serving of shelled delights, and there’s much to enjoy in this mix including Kauai shrimp, clams, mussels and scallops.
