Vino Italian Tapas & Wine Bar
First off Chuck is an amazing owner and engages with every customer while guiding them through the food and wine menus. Great place, great people, great service, great restaurant!
Food was excellent. Wine was excellent. Everything was excellent. However, I didn't like sitting on the second floor under the bright lights on Valentine's Day. Next time, we'll request the first floor.
Great food and wine. Chuck can pair and select excellent wines with you food. Always something new to taste from all parts of the world. Love the octopus, pasta and pizza.
Excellent service from the start! The food is incredible, especially the bone marrow! The waiter was helpful and went into great detail on each dish that came out. The wine list is expansive and the price is good and not out of this world. Will definitely be back to enjoy more!
Great meal, and always like hearing Chucks jokes ...:-)
Vino ... Never disappoints!!!
Great foods, great wine, and great bartender! All four of us absolutely loved each and every dish we ordered. Learned about wine a lot too!
Appreciate Chuck Furuya mingling with patrons.
Great homemade pasta and outstanding wines. Chuck is a wonderful host and always makes you feel most welcome.
Very friendly staff, delicious food and great service
Great service very good food and nice ambiance.
Delicious housemade pastas, and wine you can order in 2 oz or 5 oz portions. Really yummy.
Outstanding food and with Chuck's help, paired with some fantastic wine. Certainly understand now why Vino is a crowd favorite!
Tried it on a whim and glad we did. Not sure I would call it a hidden secret as it appeared to have some regulars. Wish I hadn't waited so long to give the place a try. Don't make the same mistake. Go now!
Very good tapas as well as entrée. Not a bid restaurant, but wait staff as well as the owner, Chuck Furuya was very attentive. They could use more waiters though.
Chuck and his crew are fabulous. Love this restaurant.
Awesome! Food was great, wine choices are amazing and affordable and service very attentive.
My star ratings says it all. Oh, great wine also. Lots of validated parking.
Always. Joy vino. Everyone there is incredible and Chuck always picks the best wines.
Easy to make reservation for a Sunday. Menu has good selection of food choices to cater to different tastes. It's also nice that with tapas dishes one can eat lightly. All ingredients are fresh and the dishes flavorful. Nice wine selection by the glass. Unhurried service which made for a nice relaxing evening to talk story. What made the night very enjoyable was having the sommelier Mr. Furuya available to ask wine questions. This is a perfect restaurant to visit more than once a week if you want just to stop in have a small dish and a glass of wine.
The 3rd visit my husband and I came with my parents for our anniversary. They loved the food. I would say it was great quality food at reasonable prices. I loved the gnocchi dishes. I’ve tried the sausage and the crab gnocchi. They were both very good. We pretty much thought that if you point to a dish on the menu, it’s going to be good. As for the deserts, the apple ice cream was the best. I would say it’s my favorite Italian style food on the island so far
Noisy. Pricier than expected. Food and wine very good.
Really nice, always enjoy Chuck’s humor!
Food was Good. Atmosthere O.K. Rather loud, there was a loud customer but also it echoed. The waiter was helpful enough but when I asked if he could fillet my fish he used two spoons to fillet it and made a mess of it, left a dozen bones in every bite. Not sure if he didn't have a clue or did it on purpose.
The service down to the food is excellent!
Great food good service,good wine.
Loved our food and our server was 👍🏼
The food was amazing. The brussel spouts are a must have.
Wine selection and prices surprisingly reasonable for what I selected and the food was terrific.
The noise level was not "energetic" ... your rating scale only goes up to.... but ridiculously loud. My girlfriend I were practically shouting at each other to be heard in our conversation. We left after our meal and being outside your door was like being in a calm atmosphere. Vino's would not be my next choice for a relaxing pau hana.
Great food! The wines are fairly priced. Excellent selctions.
Always amazing food and paired with the best wines. You can’t do any better than Vino. Thanks Chuck and Team.
Our New Year’s Eve late dinner go to. Parking is ample and very convenient. Reservations honored table was ready. Bone marrow and scampi entree were excellent. Daily special, prime rib was so so and just warm, not serving temperature. House wine was excellent. Complimentary Prosecco for our anniversary was a nice touch.
We will be back, hopefully with an updated menu.
Outstanding. The owner is the original master sommelier in the entire state of Hawaii. Extremely knowledgeable. And friendly. Fabulous food. Excellent value. Extensive wine list. Will return when we are back in Honolulu!
Vino is located in a business district past Ala Moana Mall with no view or typical trappings one would expect of a #1 rated Italian restaurant. The restaurant is small and quaint with a very friendly staff. We were seated in a corner next to the large wine cooler, I was a little put off but am glad I overlooked that as we were very pleased with our dining experience. I enjoyed the Malvasia Bianca which was wonderfully crisp and light; the wines were reasonably priced which made having a second glass an easy choice. The homemade bread with herb dipping oil was a wonderful start. The chef sent out an amuse-bouche of a frittata made from farm fresh eggs he wanted to showcase which was a delicious treat. My husband had a custom made dish of fresh handmade linguini, fennel sausage and marinara which he loved. I had the homemade cheese gnocchi with fennel sausage that was superb - little pillows of deliciousness. My daughters had the seafood bolognese and the truffle mac and cheese which they raved about - full of flavor and super creamy. The waitstaff were professional and knowledgeable and kept the meal well paced.
We definitely recommend Vino!
Great value, good Italian , superb service. A good everyday place that’s nicer than most. Will definitely do again
Christmas Eve dinner. Great place but the decor needs to be updated. Feels like the 90s in there.
My husband loved the lamb Osso Buco, very tender and tasty. I did not care for the pumpkin ravioli. The salad and bread were delicious. Waitress was very knowledgeable, friendly, cheerful, and efficient.
Never ever had a bad bite here. Our go to place for all occasions or just because. Friendly staff and great food. If you're a foodie and never been here you're not really a foodie.
