Arancino on Beachwalk

One of our main goals while staying in Waikiki was to be able to walk to every dinner. Definitely doable. It was so nice to walk along the beach almost every night. Even better was that with the exception of Chart House Waikiki, every meal was yummy. One night we decided to try Arancino on Beachwalk. It's a popular place and we made reservations the day before we went, so we ended up going a little early for us (5:30) BUT we got to walk back to the hotel along the beach, into the sunset, which was gorgeous.
We were seated right away. I liked that we were against a wall/shelf, so it felt cozy. SP chose prosecco and I chose chardonnay to drink. Here's what we enjoyed eating:
Rosemary focaccia with olive oil/balsamic dipping sauce. Really, really tasty.
Zuppa di Aragosta (lobster bisque with sherry). Really tasty - one of the best lobster bisques I've had.
Insalata Rucola Con Prosciutto (arugula, prosciutto, Ho Farms heirloom tomatoes, parmesan cheese & homemade Italian dressing). Yummy plate of one of our favorite salads.
For SP, Branzino alla Griglia, which I think was a special of the day. I'm not surprised he chose the fish over pasta or pizza, especially because he knew I'd need help with my pasta. But before helping me, he scraped clean his plate, so I guess it was good.
I chose Spaghetti Blue Crab with zucchini and tomato and parmesan. So. Good. I didn't even care that I am terribly messy when I eat spaghetti and usually avoid doing so in public. I just kept my head down and chewed and slurped and tried to contain the whipping, splatting spaghetti (my twirling skills are not very impressive, either, I usually twirl a blob way too big for my mouth).
For dessert, we shared Crema Catalana (lightly frozen orange crème brulee infused with grand marnier). It was super cold crème brulee with lots of orange flavor and a wonderful hard crust (take note, Chart House Waikiki). Yum! Next time we'd each want our own, no sharing.
We also ordered cappuccinos.

We both enjoyed our food at Arancino. Our server was terrific. They had no problems omitting garlic for me. We'd definitely go again.
