Formaggio Wine Bar is fun to go to for good food, good wine and live music!

Formaggio Wine Bar is a laid-back cool hole-in-the-wall informal local bar with great pizzas, salads and lots of good wine by the glass. The live music is always a nice touch. It's a bit dark when you first enter, but once you adjust to the lighting it is a very warm place. The space is small... read more

They opened at 530p. We got there at around 6p on a Thursday and the crowd was just starting to fill in. I didn't ask if they had beer but my gf ordered the mojito and the sunrise from their happy hour list and was pleased. They had a full bar I ended up with a double crown and sprite.... More

My husband and I were looking for good wine and a laid back restaurant to relax in after a long day. This place was exactly what we were looking for. It's a bit of a trek from the Waikiki area (about 1.5 miles from where we were staying), but well worth the walk and there is ample parking if you... More

I was introduced to this wine bar by a friend who lives in Honolulu. For each grape varietal there are about 4 - 6 wines by the glass to choose from, my host says the wine selections have not changed in the past 8 - 12 months since she was there and there were no special wines that were featured....

A friend of mine brought me here a long time ago, so when we found ourselves wondering where we wanted to eat, I remembered this little hole in the wall place, that if you didn't know where you were going, you wouldn't see it. I felt like I needed a secret password to get in! It wasn't crowded and there... More

Atmosphere at Formaggio's is amazing! I love the high ceilings & exquisite architectural decor. The live acoustic music and positive energy from patrons in the background contributed to a wonderful evening. Although there were tables around us-we experienced an intimate experience.(which is rare in oahu). My husband and I are airline employees with over 30years of international & domestic travel...

Aloha all, Formaggio's is another place my significant other and I frequent when we're out and about in the Kaimuki neighborhood and trying desperately to avoid our fast food addiction. Been there more than a dozen times and have taken friends who've given it a thumbs up as well. Normally, we go on Monday evening because we're in the area... More

The food is sensational! Try the crab cakes or the Kobe burger. My husband could not stop taking about wanting another kobe burger our entire vacation. We were celebrating our good friends' birthday so we had a table of about 10 people, service was great and prompt. Found a new favorite wine to top it off. A little pricey, but... More

If you've been to a wine bar in Wine Country, then this place will be just ok for you. The service was great, our waiter seemed pretty knowledgeable about wines..although we mentioned we wanted to sample sweet wines, he recommended three...two were sweet and one tasted like a Pinot Grigio. The other two recommendations were great. The food although good,... More
