Absolutely exceptional. Depth and breadth of wine list is almost without peer - at all price levels. Menu is varied - and everything was great. This restaurant is the definition of a “hidden gem”.

Food selection was outstanding, food quality was too salty. A little too loud to enjoy as a non-drinker, if your intention is date night with conversation.

Went here for a date night. The restaurant is small and cozy, we had a choice of dining upstairs and we chose that.
It was very intimate setting and there was only two other tables that had patrons upstairs. The restaurant was quite busy but the service was on point.

Tara was a joy to have as a server as she explained the dishes and what she preferred. The bread was excellent and tasted just like the bread I used to eat it Italy.
The wine selections were very good and reasonably priced.
We has the crab gnocchi, vongole, rucola salad, the lobster special and the fried chop.

The food was very tasty and came out in a timely manner. We will be back.

The best place in town for great wine and pasta. Chuck Furuya is known for his ability to discover great wines. He is a genius at sniffing out and befriending producers across the globe with his knowledge and engaging personality. The result is the best wine list in town. The menu is simple but the food is always great. Homemade pastas, fresh vegetables and sauces with amazing flavors. Vino's is the go to place.

We live a block away, eat out every Saturday night and have been meaning to try Vino. As we were discussing where to go on this night we were watching HI Now and Vino was featured, wallah!
We were not disappointed! Enjoyed the featured wine selections, wonderful Spanish octopus, fettuccine con vongole and the apple tart dessert. Also memorable, the olive oil, which elevated the otherwise mediocre complementary bread. All in all, a great evening.
Our server was a pleasure, very attentive and knew their menu well offering good suggestions. The owner stopped by to chat as well!
We recommend Vino and will return soon.

Don’t miss the crispy Brussel sprouts! It’s off the main drag, but worth the short taxi ride. Pasta was homemade & delicious, lamb cooked to perfection. The ‘busboy’ stopped by our table to make sure we’re enjoying ourselves, he was the owner, hiding from his wife. Service was excellent & friendly. Definitely go again on our next trip to the island.

We really enjoyed the Bristol Bay Scallops appetizer so much, we placed a second order. Actually all the food we ordered were enjoyed immensely. We went on this day, since it was Oyster night. The other appetizers we had were the Grilled Spanish Octopus (very delicious) and a 10oz. New York Steak.

We sat at the bar and had excellent wine recommendations from Brent and great service, he was always attentive to our needs. We didn't need to ask for anything, he made sure our water glasses were full with ice and water, pouring our wine, we didn't have to pour once. Amazing job he did considering, he still had other customers and making drinks for the servers to take to the dinner tables.

The added bonus is Chuck Furuya, always greets his guest, makes time to talk story, and have fun with his "taping game".

The cuisine is consistently good. We dine family-style and enjoy trying several dishes.

Ann and the servers are warm, welcoming, professional, and knowledgable about guiding guests through the menu and wine selections.

There is no favorite dish, we enjoyed them all!

Well crafted Italian cuisine, and fresh made pasta that is the best in Honolulu. The wine is the main course here, and the very extensive wine list has a great selection of both domestic and European wines.

The food never disappoint each time I go here! We came here to celebrate a birthday and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel at home. It was so interesting hearing about the history of the restaurant and the owner’s mission to create the home atmosphere. The gnocchi with crab was delicious, along with veal chop and lamb that my mother and I had. We shared the octopus and veal meatballs for appetizer. The flavor of each dish was superb, with careful attention to details. We even got extra bread to eat the sauce with! Such a lovely dinner.

Wow! The personal attention and service here was amazing. Further, the food was beyond belief so good. We had New Years Eve dinner here for four and every one of us came away with a smile and talking about how good it was. Thanks so much for making our night memorable!

Storm our server was outstanding!

To start we had the Caesar salad and a glass of red based on Storm listening to our profile then we followed his recommendation, spot on.

The food was good too, we had from the specials the fire roasted rib eye, best steak we have had in a long time including all the top tier steak houses in town. From the regular menu we decided on the branzino.

Not much room for desert so we settled on the mango sorbet.
