I Have lived on Kauai since the 90's and when I first got here I missed good Italian food. Kauai Pasta is great and has 2 locations on Island. I have had great service and delicious food every time and heartily recommend Kauai pasta to the hungry traveler. The only drawback might be the parking, if you don't mind you... More

We tried this restaurant as it was close to the Marriott Hotel in Lihue. We were plesantly surprised by the food and the service. We had the artichoke dip which was tasty along with the parm chicken and the Pomodore Chicken. Both were good choices and the amount of food was enough for us to have leftovers if we weren't... More

We were recommended by a local and then found this review on tripadvisor. We followed the link to make a reservation not realizing that the reservation was for the Kapa'a location. The Lihue location looked charming and smelled wonderful but, we were sent to the other location. Okay. So we went to the other location and they said they didn't... More

We arrived on Kauai from Kona. We were very hungry and found Kauai Pasta after reading the reasonable reviews on TA (we usually discount the obvious troll reviews). When we arrived there was a 15-20 minute wait. We were offered seating at the bar and although not drinkers we took it. Glad we did. Andy, the bartender, was wonderful! Our... More

Traveling with two picky eaters, ages 7 and 8, finding a place where we can all get something we like is a challenge. We chose Kauai Pasta for the pasta aspect but were very pleasantly surprised by the other dinner options as well. There drinks are awesome, and we came back several times during our stay for the good food... More

With a 6 hour flight and not wanting to purchase airplane food, we opted for this place. The prices were reasonable and the food was hot. Everyone in my family was filled up and happy.

We walked in and sat down as the waitress directed us to do and then she never came back. We waited over ten minutes and they knew we were waiting. We ended up just walking out.

Wow! What good food! My husband and I both cleaned our plates. The service was great and the prices were reasonable. If I'm back on Kauai I'll be back again.
