When jaded Honolulu residents venture into Waikiki for dinner, it had better be good. A cheerful cafe with Monet-yellow walls and tile floors, respectable pastas, wonderful pizzas, fabulous red-pepper salsa and rock-salt focaccia, we-try-harder service, and reasonable prices, Arancino is worth the hunt. The risotto changes daily, and you should not miss the Gorgonzola-asparagus pizza if it's on the menu. Expect a line on the sidewalk to get in, but it's worth the wait.
