Our favorite Lihue restaurant

We visited Kauai Pasta Lihue twice during our 11 day trip. It is a small restaurant that you can miss if you're not looking for it. Parking could be a problem in prime time but we went

If you want a fabulous pasta dinner, you must try Kauai Pasta in Lihue (note, there is a Kauai Pasta in Kapaa, but it is not the same owner…our waitress explained that they use to be owned by the same family, but there was a split and now are owned separately). The Caprese salad with balsamic vinegar reduction dressing was... More

This restaurant never fails to exceed our expectation. The pasta is fresh as is the salad ingredients. Atmosphere is wonderful. Love this place lunch or dinner.

The spaghetti was scumptuous so the family enjoyed a taste of Italy. However the service lacked attentiveness and accuracy of the order.

My husband and I both enjoyed our dishes at this restaurant. We were impressed with the wine list and thoroughly enjoyed the David Bruce that we drank with out meal. The atmosphere was great for couples but there were families with well behaved children as well. The apple crisp dessert was also wonderful.

We visited twice on our seven day trip to Kauai, if that gives you any indication of the experience! I was hesitant at first because of the mixed reviews, but I really enjoyed it and I'm hard to please. First things first: Eating out in Hawaii is mixed bag. Mainlanders have to accept that service at restaurants in Hawaii is... More

We had a very delicious meal at this restaurant. The staff were very friendly and there was enough food that one of us took a to-go box back to the condo. The price was also very good and we will definitely go back next time we are there.

With an overnight departure from the airport, we looked for a restaurant near the airport for dinner and decided to try Kauai Pasta. What a very pleasant surprise. We were greeted promptly and shown to a cozy table for two. Our waitress was friendly and efficient making recommendations when we asked for suggestions. The food was excellent from the garden...

This is a gem of a restaurant! After eating at two very expensive Restaurants on Maui, we weren't expecting much but we were pleasantly surprised! The food was very good; nice spices and presentation. The crab cakes were some of the best we've had and the pastas were delicious. It's a bit hard to find as the sign outside now... More

Really great food at a good price. It's a little hole in the wall. Nothing fancy to look at, but the food was outstanding. Made the trip based on TA reviews and came back again.
