Roasted cauliflower delicious as a side with Pasta. Mojito was refreshing and nice choices for appetizers. Relaxing place to catch up with a friend or dine as a family.

Expected something much better based on the reviews here. We had pesto pasta and pesto marinara which were both good but not great, and the overall meal was too expensive for what we got. I had the (pizzetta) pizza special of the day - I forget the specific ingredients - and it was good, but again not great. Total bill... More

Ate here twice during our stay on Kauai, once for lunch and then for dinner. Service and food were excellent both times. Would highly recommend the mozzarella and caprese appetizers. Side of meatballs were just ok (too many onions). All pastas were very good, especially the Greek pasta. Veal and fettuccine were strong too. Decent wine list. Didn't try dessert... More

Food in Hawaii is bland for my taste in general. But this place had excellent dishes and wasn't too over priced as some other places. I had their lasagna and it was excellent. Very friendly atmosphere

Being so lucky to travel to Italy earlier this year, we were able to compare this Italian food to the real thing. The marinara sauce was as close as we've ever had to Italy. It was to die for. I nearly marked them down because they didnt seem to season their chicken much, but the sauces more than made up... More

Truly a delicious dinner. Appetizers we're great and by themselves could have been an entrée. The selections for Entrees were unique and we'll explained. Service very good and friendly. Atmosphere is contemporary and clean. Good Air Conditioning, as it was very hot outside. This is on our permanent list of restaurants to return to.

One of, if not the best, restaurants we ate at during our visit to Kauai. Amazing food (all of us cleaned our plates) and the place had a really cool atmosphere! I had the four cheese and spinach manicotti which was delicious. Definitely returning next time we come to Kauai!

My husband and I had dinner here after making sure it was the right Kauai Pasta--there is also one on route 56 (near a Taco Bell) that's apparently owned by a different person and isn't as good. That one is in Kapaa. This one's in Lihue proper, right next to a 711. The sign says KP Lihue or something...guess they... More

Despite five previous trips to Kauai,we had never been to Kauai Pasta. Note that there are two with the same name, but different owners after a family issue broke them apart. From what we hear from multiple sources, the Lihue one is better and we were not disappointed. We had the House Salad and a Spinach Salad with Pear and... More
