Vino Italian Tapas & Wine Bar
One of our go to restaurants. Consistently well executed Cal Med dishes, reliable service, and awesome wine values. We always find a new wine to try.
Vino is our favorite place to take friends. Our server was excellent!! I’m hoping to request her again. Everyone at our table had an excellent experience. Top notch food and service.
Vino feels like home. The owner came over and sat down at our table to explain the concept of the menu and the offerings. Our server, Heather was fun and efficient. The food was served in a visually appealing way and it was delicious!
It was great! Chuck spent some time with us!
Wow. They made us feel like we were family. How amazing to be able to taste so many spectacular wines selected by a fantastic sommelier in 2 oz volumes - temperature controlled as well!! And the food was out of this world. We will be back!!
We were very pleased with Vino. Food was great, service was fast and cheerful. Food was half price at the bar during happy hours.
We definitely will return and will tell our friends about it.
Risotto portion was very small. One of the guys almost wen
We love coming here for a special occasion or just because we want a nice dinner out. The food is wonderful and the wine selection is beyond compare.
This was a great find. The food was delicious and the service outstanding. We love to try different wine and food pairing and Vino had an extensive selection of nice wines. The cauliflower, gnocchi and mac & cheese were excellent, fresh and flavorful. We will mark this as a favorite. The only downside is location. It was not easy to find as it is in a business building.
Service is awesome
Excellent wine, excellent service and delicious food. We really enjoyed the experience
One of the best spots in Honolulu!
The pizza Margherita was as good as I’ve eaten in Italy. The dining room us noisy so one person in our party with a hearing aid had a hard time.
Always love Vino! Great place to dine.
We were lucky to get in on the 1 hour Happy Hour at the Bar. The bartender was great and helpful on our decisions. We will be back again soon. We were also told that they have a specialty days. You gotta check it out.
My boyfriend and I celebrated his birthday here. It was our first time and since reviews and pictures looked great we gave it a shot. Everything was great! Food was delicious and came out quick. Plus all staff was friendly and present when needed. We will definitely be dining here again :)
We had a great evening with friends. We all enjoyed the food and Nate provided excellent service. For an Italian based restaurant, the natural steak is awesome. So flavorful and you can cut it with the butter knife; accompanying velvet mashed potatoes are so good. Lots of tapa style plates to share. The pork belly starter & the grilled octopus are highly recommended, as well as the gnocchi with crab.
Adding to the food experience are full, food friendly wine offering. Waiters are all well versed in pairing wines with your food choices. Ace in the hole is that Master Sommelier & owner Chuck is always around to lend a hand.
We celebrated my husband’s 70th birthday with great friends. As always it was a fun time at Vino. When you look around you can see smiles at every table. Chuck and the staff make everyone feel so welcome.
Food and service excellent. The vegetables were especially delicious.
Awesome food you would never know that he received his accolades as the 1st sommelier in Hawai`i. He is just not the high makamaka type. My friends were also shocked at the price of dinner & wine.
Every dish us awesome....service is great. Amazing value!
Love this place. Service is exceptional and their knowldge of wines is amazing. Food is prepared beautifully and very tasty
Lovely as always. Food is terrific - wine is great.
Osso Bucco was excellent as was the wine stewardship.
So happy I chose this place for business dinner. Nothing fancy with decor but food was phenomenal! Also great wine selection and ask for Chuck! Service was impressive too! Come for the food, everyone raved including myself! Yum from start to finish. Live the Brussels Sprouts!
It was a very efficient way of making a reservation online and the service, food, Chuck, Cheryle and Anne always makes it a very pleasant and welcoming evening with friends! Thank you Vino’s!
If you are looking for a great evening which can be either casual or formal, as “you” can decide (rather than the restaurant), this is the place! The wine list and bar drinks are outstanding. The food is prepared exquisitely using local, small farm ingredients and can be served family-style or individual portioned, as “you” determine. The ABSOLUTE BEST to purchase a nice wine and casually navigate your way through the menu as your “guests and you” decide. If Chuck Fuyria (owner) is around, invite him recommend a wine or just talk story with your table - he will be both educational and entertaining and, if you have guests, they will readily see why this is the best dining “experience” in Hawaii.
As you can tell from all the reviews that I do For VinoIt is our go to restaurant always good great service very reasonable wonderful wine list good neighborhood restaurant
We always walked past Vino on our way to Ekahi Ornish. We graduated last year, but dine together frequently to stay on track. Once I realized that Vino had a vegan menu I made a reservation. I had been to Vino several times before, but most of our group had not. We had a wonderful meal of Kale and pear salad, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, Hamakua mushrooms, golden beets, kabocha ravioli. It was reasonable at $27 per person including a 20% tip. I once read that Koreans wonder why the vegetables in American cooking are so boring. The vegetables aren't boring At Vino. They are delicious. We are Ekahi Ornish Cohort #110.
There are so many special pleasures to experience at Vino it is difficult to say which is most important. The friendly, professional and knowledgeable staff—from Owner Chuck Furuya, to welcoming Manager Anne to server Nate and all the way to Chef who checks in with you to see that you’re enjoying the food and evening. So many creative and exquisitely prepared dishes to taste and
share, you promise yourself you must return immediately before some specialty dish disappears! Pair the luscious dishes with a wine specifically chosen for you by Master Sommelier Furuya, and you’ll imagine yourself in a Michelin rated Italian Bistro in the Tuscan countryside! But surprise—you’ll awaken from your daydream in this lovely downtown Honolulu gastronomic venue. And you’ll vow to return again and again. And you will never be disappointed. Buon Appetito!
The staff is awesome! Our waitress was Tara and she was so nice and very attentive. We had a couple of toddlers and she was extremely helpful and brought their food out early so they wouldn't get noisy or bored. She had recommendations that were excellent. We even spoke to Ann, who was so knowledgeable about the wines and gave us great tips on the wines. I know how busy she is but she took the time to speak to us and not rush our wine selection. The food was great, as usual. This is my all time favorite restaurant!
Absolutely. This is a wonderful food and wine experience which we have always enjoyed immensely.
Great food, service!! The wine are wonderful and many are reasonably priced. But getting the history and information for each wine is really special.
From the minute we walked in we were greeted and made feel very welcome. Our server was most knowledgeable and helpful with all questions we had about the food as well as the wine. Wished we found this wonderful restaurant sooner, before we left Ca.
Lovely experience. Friendly waiter and “bus boy”. Great local ingredients and delicious wine
Nice restaurant with date or any size group. Very comfortable atmosphere with food at the right price.
Chuck is such a wonderful host.
Veal Milanese was delicious
I love all of the vegetable dishes.
Chuck Furuya was great with us and and helping us select our wine with our food.
Always ask for the Chef's special's as they are always tasty.
We will be back.
Continued good service and good food. Most outstanding dish is the new york strip steak... as good as or better than Hy's. People are very friendly and if you need help making a wine selection, Chuck is ready to assist you, without any pressure or forcing a higher priced wine on you. We eat here everytime we're in Honolulu... twice this time.
Everything is great.
Including its bathroom. Very clean.
The lady waitress was very nice and professional.
If anything...maybe to turn down the music a little softer
We will definitely go again!!
