    Driving down Ala Moana Boulevard in Honolulu, it’s easy to miss the shopping center that houses VINO, one of the star properties in the D.K. Restaurant Group. The reason for its success is two-fold: the stellar “gulpable” wine program, designed and maintained by Master Sommelier Chuck Furuya, and the rustic Italian menu put out by Chef Keith Endo. VINO is so different from the typical Honolulu eatery that eating there is a completely welcome and comforting experience. The dimly lit dining room has little of the kitsch so prevalent elsewhere, and the menu could easily have been ripped straight from an osteria in Emilia-Romagna.
