My wife and I join another couple for a couple of weeks in Poipu each winter. We make it a point to dine at Casa Di Amici a few times during our time on the island. We were pleased when we heard that the original owner was back in charge. He visited our table during our most recent meal there,... read more

Most fine dining options on Kauai are overpriced with suspect food quality. This restaurant is perhaps the only exception. Excellent food, educated staff, attentive service, great value, nice ambiance.

We had read mixed reviews of this restaurant, but we were hoping for the best as we walked up to it. The building itself is in a strange locatio - in a neighborhood by Poipu Beach. It was convenient to where we were staying, so we thought that if the food was good, we would go there at least twice... More

Not a classic Hawaiian place but love this every time we dine here. The waiter is really fun, great with kids especially. Superb wine list and some dishes I get every time I eat here (the nero pasta for example and the green tomato and cheese appetizer). May not be for everyone and it's hard to find the first time...

Out of the 9 restaurants we ate at when we were in Kauai this was the most disappointing. It is just O.K. but recommended by the hotel and trip-advisor.

I had the shrimp scampi and my husband had the sausage/peppers/pasta. The shrimp dish was made with good size shrimp (5), lobster stock which was good but it also had sliced peppers and capers in it. It wasn't bad but did not taste like the classic shrimp scampi. My husbands sausage/peppers was made with cumin in it. Cumin is ok... More

The Casa di Amici was just around the corner from our B&B, so it was the natural place to go when we arrived late in Poipu. We were not disappointed - the service was excellent and the food was first rate. The owner is on the scene and even stopped by to chat with us, and top off our water... More
