THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Vino Restaurant Review

: The Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar group, known for its bells-and-whistles maki, doing Italian? The premise might seem like a leap, but owner D. K. Kodama and his team have pulled it off. In cahoots with master sommelier Chuck Furuya (on a consulting basis) and others, Kodama opened Vino, injecting some dolce vita into the Maui dining scene. The name isn't hype---the restaurant revolves around Furuya's impressive wine program. While executive chef Ruth Rasmussen's food is reasonably priced, you might rack up a hefty bill tasting Furuya's alluring choices. Vino is the only place in Hawaii where you'll find choices like a 2001 Brachetto d'Acqui Luigi Coppo, or a 1999 Petroso Vallania. Vino's menu offers safe, fairly familiar dishes. Silk handkerchiefs (Vino's take on the traditional Genovese-style pesto lasagna) and rib-eye prepared simply in the Tuscan way (marinated in garlic and olive oil and served on fresh arugula) add contemporary flair.
