Two Japanese guys, D.K. Kodama (chef and owner of Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar and d.k Steakhouse, reviewed earlier) and Chuck Furuya (Hawaii's top master sommelier) teamed up to create this culinary adventure for foodies. The cozy room, with murals of a vineyard and a kitchen with barrels of wine on the walls, makes you ready for the mouthwatering Italian creations by chef Tom Selman. I'd recommend any ravioli on the menu, but signature dishes include roasted peppers with grilled focaccia, tender crispy calamari, seared foie gras, and petite osso buco. Don't pass up the house-made gnocchi or the daily pizza. Furuyu has put together an amazing array of wines by the glass, dispensed from a custom-crafted 20-spigot wine cruvinet.
