    My favorite restaurant in my favorite department store. View is primarily why I go but also love the cocktails and food. Our server was a little inattentive today but I guess she felt overwhelmed. Not a big deal, will always be my first choice foe bday lunch/dinners….

    We went last minute and were able to get in even though they were fully booked. We had calimari with peppers, great combination and wonderful dipping sauce. I had the pizza special with potatoes and leeks! So tasty my wife had shrimp salad that was wonderful, service was fast and attentive, everything came out fast and was very good, I can’t wait to go back and try the cauliflower as I saw it on another table, it was grilled to perfection. Great restaurant that won’t disappoint.

    Ruscello should improve on dessert selections. There should be a cake or pie selection. Even selection from the Ebar are better.

    Really nice experience; the restaurant was not very busy which was nice, as it can get noisy when packed. We had a very nice server who was attentive and kind. We had the calamari appetizer, and a bowl of fries. Both served hot and the sauce with the calamari was delicious. We had the mushroom (portabello?) ravioli in a cream sauce and my personal favorite (get it every time!) the chicken meatballs with penne in a lightly spicy cream tomato sauce. It is just perfect, although sometimes the penne has been a little over cooked. I like a true al dente. We were simply too full for dessert, but in the past have favored the creme brulee. The parking is easy since it is at the Ala Moana Shopping Center. The elevators weren't working so we had to explore how to get into the store by escalator - which once revealed by a call to pleasant staff member, was very simple...across the street in the parking lot and up one floor. All in all, another good experience at this neighborhood gem!

    The service was acceptable and dining room was pleasant. The food was average. The bread for our turkey club was very hard and dry. The pizza was greasy with too much butter. Bread was not brought to our table until later. Will not go back.

    I ordered the chicken pesto gnocchi. The pesto sauce was the consistency of water. It was more like a gnocchi soup. Very disappointed, I do not recommend that dish. Tacos were ok - not alot of flavor and smaller than a street size taco. Usually the food is very good but today it was far from it.
