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.

In fairness, this is the only restaurant in Lihue I actually visited, so I suppose I can't definitively say it's not worthy of #3. But we had totally generic, bland pasta dishes and stale bread. Upsides: friendly, if slightly disinterested, service, and large portions. In summary, you're in Hawaii... Why in the world do you want generic Italian food anyway??

Found Kauai Pasta based on online reviews and a few recommendations from locals we met on our recent stay. Ended up ordering takeout and there was an error with one of the orders not prepared (left off chicken from a dish but not charged either) as we asked. Food was ready on time, decent portion for value and we enjoyed... More

We ate dinner here twice. The first time we ate in so we had all the service. Both of our meals were well prepared and delicious. We went back for take out salads another night. Decent prices and fast service.

We were killing time before our red eye flight home and came across this place without any expectation. It was fantastic! Appetizers were superb, try as many as you can. Also the pasta meals were tasty and big portions. Wait staff could be a little friendlier, but the food was worth a re-visit next time for sure. Fresh and delicious!

what can i say, the chicken parmesan was delicious, and served with pasta and pesto sauce. my daughters' pasta with alfredo probably had the most delicious alfredo sauce i have ever tried. top that off with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream with their signature home made caramel and it was a night to remember. yum.

Let me surprise all by saying that if you are looking for the bottom dwelling review, this is here to dispel that impression. My wife and I had a most excellent dinner there this last Friday evening, and I would heartily recommend this treasure to all who are interested. I had the special the Asa Buco (?), which was exquisite,... More

A local in Kauai recommended this restaurant to us for a very good meal, so we decided to try it. We met other visitors there who said they go there every time they're in Kauai. It was outstanding! Very beautifully prepared, and delicious. Their salads and appetizers were fabulous. I highly recommend it.

The food, service and value were all superb and I'm picky! When you travel for a living as I do this is the kind of place you always hope for and rarely find. I'll be back on my next visit to Kauai! 😊
