There are only good things to say....

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... read more

We made reservations over a week ahead for the Kapaa Kauai Pasta through Open Table website. Advised by a comment to request a booth because tables small and in a thoroughfare. When we arrived we were told we couldn't have a booth (3 empty) because they were being held for larger parties (we were just 2) Were disappointed but accepted... More

One of the best Italian dinners anywhere. All dinners were hot and very good. This place was recommended by another guest at the resort we were at. A little hard to find, but worth it.

Kauai Pasta has great food but ambience at the Kapaa site is not very appealing. The lounge area in the far back of the restraunt is another story. Dark and much more intimate and if you are trying to eat gluten free you are in luck. Many of the entrees can be ordered that way. It is one of the... More

Our family of 4 ate here for dinner one night. We did wait about 30 minutes as the restaurant is small, but the food was worth it. Very good food that was made with good ingredients. It was not "fast" Italian food. Our kids enjoyed the wood fired pizza and I had Bruschetta and Pesto pasta with chicken. It was... More

We were attracted to this restaurant because it advertised gluten free pasta dishes. It's staff was very friendly and helpful. We placed our order to go. My wife's chicken pomodoro came out first and my pizza took longer (we placed our order at the beginning of dinner service and were informed that the oven was not yet 'up to speed').... More

We stayed at the Waipouli Resort across the street and chose this place based on TripAdvisor recommendations. The service was friendly and the food came out fresh and delicious. I give only 4-stars because we ordered a veal dish but they didn't have veal available that night. The ravioli app was quite good and the short rib main dish (which... More

We came for lunch upon advice from Trip Advisor. We had the fries as an appetizer and they were ADDICTING!! Lunch was great. Entering the place is odd, you have to go through the bar. Good looking place, seemed clean and nice servers.

We ate here during our trip to Kauai, and really loved the food. We didn't see the lounge as we were really hungry, but our food was delicious. We both ordered the specials, I had the best calzone I've had in ages. Having read some of the other reviews, I'm at a loss to explain why we had such a... More

Food with no flavor, cold food, and poor service. How much worse can it get? Loud, overpriced, and little caring. 3 desserts offered to a table of 9 to make up for all of us getting cold food. Never again.
