Pane y Vino
Prices: $13 to $24
Bon giorno, Waikiki. This year-old wine bar is a budget surprise amid the pricey restaurants here. Hidden on the second floor of an old motel, Pane y Vino transports diners to Italy with Roman cuisine and more than 25 wines that can be purchased by the glass. Chef Fabrezio Favala describes the food as "a cross between the north and the south of Italy -- not too much cream, not too much tomato." Try the caprese ($9), grilled chicken with pesto sauce on a spring salad ($15) or eggplant parmesan ($16).
We loved. . . the servers and the inventive décor.
We didn't love. . . the difficulty we had finding the entrance.
Pane y Vino, 408 Lewers St., Waikiki; (808) 923-8466.
