Best Italian we have had on Kauai

We eat here every time we are on Kauai, which is every two years. We look forward to it each time and are thrilled when we see it is still open. It may not the very best Italian we have ever had, but, for a change of pace when on Kauai, it is pretty darned good pasta. The selections are... read more

This truly was some of the best food I've eaten in a restaurant, and the best of all the restaurants we ate at in Kauai. I haven't eaten every where yet, so there may be more great places.?? The food was wonderful to taste, gorgeous to look at and served by friendly people. The menu has something for everyone and... More

This is not a bad place to eat! My only complaint was that there were not a lot of options available on the menu. I really enjoyed the pasta, and the Caprese, One Beef item, 2 chicken items, 1 seafood item, 1 veal item and 1 Sausage item. Great menu for vegetarians, Spaghetti, or lasagna, but not much selection otherwise.... More

Went to Kauai Pasta Kapa'a while on vacation. We shared the spinach artichoke appetizer and also the house pasta and meatballs. The appetizer was OK, nothing special. Same with the house pasta... OK, but nothing you couldn't make at your house for $4.00/PP. The meatballs were cold and had to be heated for us. Again, I make better meatballs at... More

This place has a banana bread pudding that is the best thing I've ever eaten. Kauia Pasta is a great place to stop for a reasonably priced (by Hawaii standards) meal. The staff was friendly and incredibly talkative... our server gave us some great tips for hikes and adventures to check out. The pasta was good- but the service and... More

It's just one of those places that you just can't go wrong with. I can honestly say I have never dislike anything I've had here. The bar in the back is a must. My advice try one of the signature cocktails and have a fun night.

We both had the House pasta which is spaghetti with their meaty sauce. Very good tasting sauce. My husband added meatballs which he said were very good. It comes with a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread and garlic butter. I think the pasta was $13.95 on the menu.

Extremely tasty. Excellent service. Creative offerings. Not the least expensive restaurant on Kaua’i but worth the cost. I’ve likely eaten here at least 30 times over past 3 years. Highly recommended.

We had the bruschetta, lasagna and chicken parmesan. We tried Kauai Pasta in Lihue 3 years ago and it was average also. This location and adequate seating but parking was very limited. The food was fair to average but over priced. The service was good.
