We dined as a group of 6 on a Saturday. After being greater promptly, we waited about 10 minutes to be seated. Pretty amazing on a busy Saturday night! The waiter, Tyson, demonstrate extreme professionalism. Tyson was ready to discuss drink specials and menu highlights the moment we were seated. He brought our drinks and several loaves of house baked... More

The only thing better than the food was the service! Very reasonable prices and good food. Don't even think of leaving without having cheesecake.

We tried this place for dinner, had the pesto fettuccine & chicken Parmesan. Service was good & refills on water & soda kept coming. The white cream sauce was very flavorful. Bread was extra delicious. It's kauai so Italian choices are limited, so it fit the bill.

We frequent KP so we were shocked at how awful the service was the other day. It was lunch time and our waitress acted like we were annoying here just being there. She was so rude, no hint of a smile, no 'hello', it was unbelievable. She took our order and when the food came out we never saw her... More

The food was great, the portions huge! It's a little on the pricey side but good for a nice night out. Most of the ingredients are fresh and local. Nice wait staff and quick service.

A local recommended this and it was one of the worst meals and service we've ever had. We sat below an AC unit and froze. The food was just bad. Can't explain it other than bad. The service was nonexistent and unpleasant. Avoid!!

Stopped by for lunch, was hungry for pasta, and that's quite a tall order for something gluten free! I had the house pasta, my husband had fettucine alfredo. He had beautiful homemade noodles, but said the dish was only "all right." I was thrilled to have meat sauce with lots of meat in it and I liked the Italian seasoning.... More

Went based on a friend's recommendation and were a bit disappointed. The place is crazily organized and wanders through three different spaces connected. Said there was a bar but we had trouble locating it - all the way to the back, an unusual location. Meat balls and pasta sauce had a strange seasoning and odd taste. One person ordered the... More

After two weeks in Kauai and eating their wonderful fish and seafood almost every day, my husband and I had a hankering for pizza. Other than a couple of chains, Kauai is not famous for their Italian food but relying on a local's suggestion we decided to try Kauai Pasta, and am I glad we did. The pizza is totally... More

Ate at Kauai Pasta our last night on the island at the recommendation of a local and good reviews on tripadvisor. Absolutely don't recommend it!! We were seated right away without reservations, but it took our waitress a good 10 minutes to greet us. By then we knew what we wanted and ordered. We got an appetizer of meatballs and... More
