Good taste and value

The Kapaa and Lihue locations are apparently now owned separately but we ate at both and both were solid, very good quality, and reasonably priced. Many gluten free options- the pasta is better than the pizza- and excellent meat balls.

The menu was very limited and was over priced. The quality of the food was average, especially considering the meal pricing.

Went here for lunch on our first night in Kauai tonight and will definitely go back during our weeklong stay here. Quick, friendly service and very good food. Highly recommend you check out this restaurant for lunch or dinner.

Went here for dinner. Ordered the fettichini alfredo, which is good when first served but gets gummy as it cools. Hubby ordered the spaghetti , with a side of sausage meatballs. The meatballs were small, dry and had way too much sage in them. They were $5.95 for three of them, and they were cold. Hubby was not happy! For... More

We had lunch at Kauai Pasta in Kapa'a. I had the pizza panini and it was good but I have to admit that I've had better paninis with much more flavour. My friend had the spinach salad and said that it was delicious. The highlight of the meal was the dessert that we shared - bread pudding made with homemade... More

The restaurant is very dark. Really, a few more lights on would have made it much more pleasant. The staff was very inattentive. The food was just average, and the prices rather high.

The back bar area is great...a little more quiet and the atmosphere, mood and lighting is perfect for couples. We have had some really good meals here and look forward to returning!

My daughter was craving spaghetti so we found the closest pasta place we could to the hotel. What a find!! The Greek Pasta was amazing! The dishes are the perfect size - filling, but not too big. The kids menu was more extensive than most which was a plus for us. Prices are little bit high, but we didn't regret... More

I've eaten at Kauai Pasta three times now and enjoy it every time. They have delicious gluten free pizza and gluten free pasta (no GF pizza at lunch though). Very reasonable prices and the staff are always professional and courteous. They have a nice ambiance but also still OK for kids. Definitely recommend trying it out!

This restaurant produces quality meals every time. We have had 5 meals (both lunches and supper) over the past four years. The calamari and truffle fries are top notch but the lounge atmosphere can be a bit dark for some. The Kapaa location has a nice ambiance at night and the pasta is superb. Our favourite dish is the clam... More
