Vino Prices: $7.50 to $16.95 Wine connoisseurs will raise a toast to this trendy tapas and wine bar on Honolulu's Restaurant Row (which isn't a row at all but a group of restaurants in a downtown commercial building). The grape is the king here, with a menu that's one page of food and three pages of wines. Sommelier-owner Chuck Furuya hasn't sold dining short, however. Try the seafood ravioli ($9.95) or gourmet pizza ($9.95). The restaurant won a 2004 award of excellence from Wine Spectator magazine. Flights are $2.50 for 2 ounces and $5.50 to $12.50 for 5 ounces. We loved. . . the stylish look of the restaurant and the helpful waiters. We didn't love. . . the limited menu. Vino, 500 Ala Moana, Honolulu; (808) 524-8466.
