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...

I was traveling home alone and decided to pop in for a good dinner and glass of wine. I was met by a young bartender Morgan who showed me some great hospitality and pointed me to some great menu items. What a sweet young woman! Made me feel at home. Excellent service too! A must stop in for a great... More

This was recommended by a local and is a marvelous find. Special touches and finishes made each dish just right! Great service as well. Ambience is a little funky but if you want excellent pasta, check it out.

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of a friendly sales assistant at Barnes & Noble on Maui. We don't normally find restaurants that way, but she was so effusive in her praise, it ended up being one of the first things we did when we arrived on Kauai. The meals were fresh and authentic. Aside from the large portions,... More

Totally confused by the spectacular rating that Kauai Pasta has obtained. We ate here last night and it was great that they had a table for us about 1/2 hour before our reservation. Service was OK but it would have been nice if the bread plate was refilled. I had the clams as an appetizer and it was pricey for... More

Enjoyed the salad at it's best. Large portion for very reasonable pricing. $17 for a big tasty spaghetti plate. I love the large selection of beer and wine. Servings are Great for the eye and taste excellent. Good value nice ambient.

We were starving and this little was open. Were we lucky! We had pasta with meat sauce, Greek pasta, Caesar salad , a veal dish. It was so good that the same week we went back!

We were trying to find a good place to eat and fell on this little gem. It's pretty small and dark so drove right past it. They seated us pretty fast for a Friday night. Pretty small place but the food and wine was amazing. We are trying to figure out if we want to go anywhere else this trip.
