If a quiet night in doesn’t suit you at the moment, opt for a delicious and lively night out at Formaggio Wine Bar. In addition to offering more than 60 different wines by the glass, the Kaimuki eatery makes for a perfect dining destination for anyone.
“If you want to bring your date or your family, (we have) good food here,” says owner and manager Niraj Maskey.
The award-winning restaurant is located at Market City Shopping Center and has nightly live music to go along with its eclectic menu, which offers international flavors from Italy to France to Nepal and even Korea.
