Don’t be put off by the depressing exterior of this place- step inside and you could easily be in a trendy wine bar in New York or London. Very romantic atmosphere, great service, and the best wine list I’ve seen in Hawaii. The food is...More

Entering Formaggio through a plain dark glass door brings one to a dark wine-cellar like ambiance. You feel like you are in a cozy basement wine bar in some hipster neighborhood. This is a wine bar so their are wine pours in various sizes. 6...More

found Formaggio Wine Bar on TA of course. Uber took me over from Waikiki and it was about a 12 min ride. I will say that this place is hard to find. I posted a photo of the outside. Unassuming, not pretentious, very casual and...More
