Hawaii Mom Blog: Ruscello Revisited




April 13, 2017

Ruscello Revisited

My aunty and I decided to meet for lunch today at Ruscello, located on the third floor of Nordstrom in Ala Moana Center. It was the first time for my aunt, who rarely ventures past Kaimuki these days.

She elected to sit at a table in the open-air lanai, which was actually a nice place to enjoy our mid-day lunch, despite the noise from the construction going on at Park Lane

It's been about a year since I last dined here with Gem, when the restaurant was in its infancy (read about her experiences at Ruscello here).  I recall the food was outstanding, but the service was just so-so.  

This time around, both the food and service were outstanding. We shared the ginger panko crusted chicken salad, kalua pork sandwich, and sorbet & gelato.  It was the perfect amount of food for the two of us.

Kalua pork sandwich

Lilikoi sorbet, raspberry sorbet, and coffee gelato

Our server was very attentive, coming around periodically to re-fill our drinks and water glasses and to see if we needed anything. He encouraged us to take our time even though the restaurant was busy, making this a very comfortable and relaxing dining experience.

Reservations are recommended, and you can make them on OpenTable
