Located at the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort, the Arancino di Mare has a lunch special for $23.95 which consists of a salad or soup plus an entree. The best part is that kamaainas receive a discount of $12 with proof of an ID.
My SO went there for lunch. We parked in the hotel, walked to the restaurant, and chose a seat inside. RM had the garden salad and the spaghetti con polpette (pork and beef meatballs). I ordered the Caesar salad and the spaghetti con tobiko & calamari.
Our meal came with focaccia bread which was fresh, warm and delicious. Both pastas were good. My spaghetti sauce was light. RM said the pasta was good but he did not like the meatballs.
Lunch is served 11:30 am – 2:30 pm. Arancino di Mare is located on the ground floor of the Waikiki Marriott (2552 Kalakaua Avenue).
Compared to the Arancino at The Kahala, Arancino di Mare is a less expensive alternative especially with the lunch special discount for locals. Three hours free validated self parking is available.
