The food and drinks were great and reasonably priced. Service was also very good. Doesn't look like much from the outside, so don't be put off by that.

This restaurant was amazing we found it by chance and were really impressed. I don't even like pasta but this was wow!!!! My partner said it's the best pasta he's ever had and the dark chocolate creme brûlée was to die for!!!!!

|Recommended by a shop keeper. At first glance it does not seem like much but step inside. Great place food superb, service above average, I wish I could have saved the leftovers but we were leaving the next morning I rate this as a must go to in Kapaa. Along with ONO restaurant for breakfast just up; the road.

Looking for Italian food other night and some recommended the Kauai Pasta in Kapaa. It was a great suggestion. The inside is kind of weird shape in that there is a dining room and then a back dining room and then a bar. We ate in the first room. It was a little dark to read the menu but we... More

It doesn't look promising from the outside, but the minute you walk in the door the delicious smells hit you and your impression improves enormously. We were not let down, the food was very good (the butternut squash ravioli excellent, a bit sweet; the pesto pasta slightly dry, but good). The bread was superb, we bought an extra helping. Service... More

I was really surprised to get such a horrible plate of pasta and salad. The restaurant actually was recommended by a local resident. I have never given a scathing bad review on anything but I can say this restaurant and it's food totally deserves it. First it was 5:00 p.m. I asked for a booth ( several were available) I... More

Thank you for your feedback. However, the items you are describing are not ones we serve. We do not have a pasta special of the day or a 'special house salad.' We also do not serve a spinach salad with feta cheese and olive oil, so we are unsure what dish you had. Perhaps you are mistaking us for another... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local. We were able to make a reservation through Open-Table which was later that I hoped for. But I called the restaurant directly and they let me move my reservation to an earlier time. We were greeted quickly and seated soon after in the second room which was pleasantly decorated and well lighted without... More

We ate a late lunch here--we were asked to sit in the bar area which was dark. But our server was friendly and pleasant. She explained that all the food was local. It took what seemed like a long time before the food came. My arugula salad was perfect-- fresh, pretty and tasty. Others in the group found the eggplant... More

Although the restaurant is definitely unassuming the food was pretty terrific. We shared the calamari to start which was very yummy. My husband had the lasagna which he thoroughly enjoyed-he skipped the garlic bread so he would be able to eat it all. I had the butternut squash ravioli which was fabulous. The service was almost too quick as we... More
