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

Be aware of Formaggio, unless you would like to see a circus act. In the center ring of a three ring circus, a bar tender, a manager in accompany, who have no knowledge of wine nor their menu-- making up a slew of excuses for their lack, better yet, no knowledge of wine and their menu. Sadly, they reminded me... More
