Pane & Vino

Best Bar for a First Date

While playing tourist in Waikiki we spied a dimly-lit, rustic sign that read, simply, Pane & Vino. Intrigued, we climbed the stairs to a cozy enoteca with dark wood and an exposed beam ceiling. Our bartender offered tastes of the fruity and dry Montepulciano Abruzzo and the well-balanced Valpolicella Secco Bertani. The wines, all from Italy, were surprisingly affordable (bottled beers are also available, including the rarely spotted Italian lager, Peroni). For an hour or so we played tourist in Italy instead.

408 Lewers St., 923-8466. 5:30 p.m. to "until we are happy."
