Vino Italian Tapas & Wine Bar
It was on our birthday vacation we were recommended to go to Vino. It was a great dinner our waiter was excellent and the price was extremely reasonable!
Very good experience. Service,food,wine,and price was spot on. We even got personal service from Chuck Furuya(our personal sommelier)the whole night. He helped to wine and entertain us all night. What a treat! Excellent Valentines night!! Much Mahalos!!
Very Delicious! Homemade pastas with amazing flavors!! This isn't my first time here and it never disappoints! Must visit! Also, Great wine list!
The staff at Vinos are all amazing. The bartender was very knowledgeable about his drinks and our server was just lovely and always on top of things.
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.
This is no question
The Best place for food wine expertise on both
2nd time visit while on our honeymoon!
Good food, great service..
What else do you need.
My go to restaurant on Oahu.
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".
Did the tasting menu with wine pairing... amazing!
Food was great, except wife had a chicken caeser salad and the chicken was very tough - almost inedible
The roasted brussel sprouts was delicious!
Great food, server was knowledgeable about the food and wine. Very enjoyable evening. Thank you!
Food was fabulous food and excellent service by the staff. They were very accommodating, friendly and resourceful. Love the emphasis on local produce.
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.
Disappointed not given the "keychain" special pricing for the dinners we ordered
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.
Excellent food, excellent menu, excellent wine list. Chuck is wonderful and all the staff.
Food was great, server was very friendly and knowledgeable about menu. Great selection of wines, nice place to take time and enjoy your dinner! Will definitely return again!!!
Food was good but portions were very small and service was slow.
Everything was really good nothing bad to say
Always amazing! The whole experience. Best Italian food I have had in the US.
Always great.... always
Everything from the service to the food was excellent. Chuck Furuya, the owner, walks around to check his guests. Nice and friendly guy! Adds a personal touch to the dining experience.
Farm to Table, authentic Italian food paired with excellent wine recommendations.
With a Master Sommelier on premise who has trained his server staff with wine/food knowledge.
Come enjoy your Foodie experience yourself
Fantastic dinner with wines selected by Chuck! Mahalo Vino!!!
Wow, Where to start...
Great wines, and all of the staff know how to pair these with any menu item.
Great food. Good-quality, fresh ingredients prepared by chefs who know what to do with them.
Friendly knowledgeable staff, ready to please.
All-around experience - excellent!!
Always a wonderful experience from start to finish
If you need a place to go to for anything - a date, work place gathering, or just to get some great food - this is the place to go!
Went out as a celebration of my graduation! Vino did not disappoint from food, to service, and to atmosphere everything was beyond perfect ! Thankyou for a great evening !
Vino has become our favorite restaurant. All of the food is mostly local and very fresh. Every dish we have ordered has been deliciously unique in flavor and presentation. The little plates makes it possible to order a wide variety of foods. It is nice to be able to order a dish, eat it, and order another one. The wine selection is top-notch.
The excellent service adds to the experience. Even though it has usually been a busy evening when we have been there, the food has always come promptly and we have never felt rushed. Chuck, the owner, makes it a point to stop by every table. If you engage him in conversation, you will find him quite witty, incredibly well-informed about wines, and passionate about fresh, quality food.
Always a great meal, they bring you the very best in Italian and mediterranean cuisine and pride themselves on a very very carefully chosen but large wine list that complements everything on their menu. I love that they have seasonal/monthly/weekly specials so that you could weekly and never get bored with the menu.
We went to celebrate my mom’s life. It was beautiful and Chuck toasted with us.
Enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at Vino. Master Sommelier Chuck Furuya spent time at our table talking about wine-food pairings and telling us about his recent trip to Italy. Great evening!
