Unusual place for a Italian dinner.

Unusual "Tropical Italian" cuisine. Very interesting and unexpected menu and flavor combinations. Shabby chic Interior. Service was spotty but the owner is very interesting. He does everything. We will return again next year. Located next door to an apartment building.

My husband and I ate here 16 years ago on our honeymoon and promised to bring our kids back someday. We arrived in Kauai yesterday and I was so excited to see that they were still on the island.... We all had an exceptional meal, the owners are fantastic and we want to bring Clyde back with us to the... More

We are visiting Poipu Kauai and wanted to try another type of restaurant serving something besides fish. We came upon the jewel named casa di amici hidden in a residential neighborhood. Joanna (owner) welcomed us as did Clyde and chef/owner Randall. After Clyde poetically and lusciously explained the ingredients in the dishes we decided to go with the calamari, lasagna... More

The food has nothing of Italian. It is a mixture of what the restaurant has left over from previous nights . We could not give a name of this awful food served to us. No name for it! The bill for 3 was over $200 with a bottle of wine bad wine. How these people can stay in business dolling... More

Decided to try this restaurant out of convenience since it was walking distance from the condo we stayed at in Poipu, but oh my are we happy we did. Our party of 5 each ordered different dishes so we could share and experience the food, from duck confit to pork risotto carbonara to tiger prawns, then bread pudding and their... More

Over the several years we have been going to Poipu Beach (Marriott), Casa di Amici is the one restaurant we always try to have dinner at. The restaurant is in remodeled home in a local neighborhood (not sure how they got zoning) that is an easy walk from the Marriott. Just turn left at Brennecke’s Beach (there is a sign... More

Great food and the owner is a HOOT! Nestled in local neighborhood and off the beaten path but well worth the experience. Weather permitting we like to sit in outdoor seating although inside is relaxed and comfortable as well. Not cheap but we always plan at least one dinner here whenever visit Kauai.

When my mother suggested Italian for dinner in Kauai I was a bit skeptical having suggested fish. What we found was an amazing Italian restaurant where my wife had what she described as the best lasagna she had ever had, and everything we tried was excellent Italian. Our waiter explained in amazing detail how each item was made, seemingly all... More

Wonderful food. Try the Kalahari. Talk to the way staff. The water boy just might be the owner along with Joann, his wife. Love these guys

The restaurant has a small parking lot and was easy to access from our resort. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The waiter was new and very attentive. He was working his way up and seemed to enjoy his new position. He recommended dishes and was spot on. The drinks were generous and the prices OK.
