WE got take out 2 nights ago. The food was ready and the staff pleasant. It's ok, and thankfully, it's not expensive. I expected dishes with more flavor-being of Italian descent. Salads were fresh and dressings good. Overall, I'd give it a B-.

This was a nice change from seafood and the Italian food was perfect. The selection was not great but there was enough variation to satisfy even the pickiest diners. I had the chicken parmesan and my wife had the Greek pasta. We loved our meals. They were flavorful and the portions were very generous. I don't know if you can... More

We were driving by Kauai Pasta when we smelt the delicious smell of garlic and pasta. All of us at once said lets eat there so at the next intersection we went around the block and parked. The menu has the usual Italian dishes and we all choose a favorite to order. The service was excellent, prices were reasonable and... More

My husband and I went to dinner here a couple nights ago and the food was amazing!! Little spendy, but wasn't disappointed by the food or service. I got the Pesto Chicken and my husband got the Chicken Parmesan. We shared a Caesar salad to start, also very good. I want to go back before we leave the island, even... More

Stopped in for a late lunch after heli ride and took advantage of the "pick two" special. Had the pesto pasta with basil and mac nuts, and the fettuccine alfredo. Huz had the chicken panini and house pasta. Great way to sample, and includes tasty garlic toast. I have to say that the alfredo was so buttery it made my... More

Having lived on Kauai I can tell you that once this place opened, it became an instant it! It seems every single friend I have eats here at least once a week. It is on the fancier side- a little pricey, and while I have not been entirely knocked off my socks by any dish yet, (perhaps because price off-sets... More

We had five of us there. Our meals ranged form the house pasta to portobello sandwich. All of the food was fantastic. Our first time at Kauai Pasta. This is definitely a place to return to multiple times. If you like Italian this would be on your top 10 places to eat in Kauai

This is the no. one stop for Lihue. This meal was pleasant. The Atmosphere good. We (my partner and I) both had freh delicious salads. My partner swore that her arugula goat cheese salad was the best. My garden salad was mixed greens and scrawny bits of trimmings. Dressings were good and prices were fair for the island. We shared...

We had a fantastic lunch today @ Kauai Pasta. This little Italian place doesn't look like much on the outside-- but what a gem! The menu is plentiful and reasonably priced compared to other places in the island. The food was made in traditional Italian style. I had the Arugula & goat cheese salad. It was huge & fresh! My...
