Arancino Di Mare
You won’t find heaping portions of greasy pasta at Arancino. The restaurant, which has two locations in Waikiki, imports as many of its ingredients as possible straight from “the boot” to ensure diners have a genuine Italian food experience. The smaller, more intimate Beach Walk location serves up simple, flavorful dishes such as the owner’s favorite pizza with shrimp and onions and spaghetti with blue crab and zucchini in a swoon-worthy romantic setting. Stop in to find out how real red sauce is supposed to taste. 255 Beach Walk, 923-5557; Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort, 2552 Kalakaua Ave., 931-6273, www.arancino.net.
