After hearing (and reading) many negative recent reviews of what had been one of our favorite restaurants on island, our concerns were greatly alleviated when we walked in and immediately spotted Randy, the longtime owner-chef. We quickly found that not only was he back and the interim owner gone, but the excellent food, wines and bar preparations, and superior service... More

We arrived with no one at front of house. We asked for a table of four outside and after some discussions with other staff we were seated. The wait staff were an odd mix of older men and felt weird The specials were explained, which took at least 5 mins, frankly I was bored within 30 seconds. We ordered our... More

We have been to Casa di Amici on past trips and were surprised when we got into town and there was a sign on the door that they were closed for a few weeks, yet would re-open two nights prior to our departure. We made reservations and went on a Saturday night as they have live piano music. Our server... More

My husband and I just returned from dining at Casa di Amichi and it was just an odd experience. The service was slow and our waiter seemed completely frazzled. He was literally sweating bullets. We didn't mind the slow service so much because we weren't in a hurry but it did take us 20 minutes to get our cocktails. We... More

I should have known when we entered the restaurant and only 2 other tables were occupied that our meal was not going to be the greatest. The selections on the menu were odd so we had difficulty selecting entrees. I selected the duck which was OK but the vegetables were very strange and did not taste good at all. My... More

I travel significantly, but this is only my second time ever writing a review. I tend to be a reader rather than writer, but our experience at Casa di Amici leaves me without a choice. The service was both non-existent and poor. While I eat out frequently, I am not a snob. Simple but good is fine, as is simple... More

This place is a complete insult to the beautiful island of Kauai. We had a reservation and were completely ignored at the door. After 10 minutes we were seated, given menus and water. That was IT. We sat there for a full 30 minutes with not so much as the decency of a waiter or the owner for that matter,... More

It's hard to find a middle of the road restaurant somewhere between the laid back bar/restaurant that attracts locals to the big production, expensive resort restaurants, but this place has succeeded. Probably not for everybody, but an excellent menu with fresh fish selections daily. However, menu is slanted more on the Italian side, which is what we wanted. My wife... More

We just drove away from this poorly run restaurant. We waited 5 mins in the lobby and there was no host. They clearly don't like money because I know some of their staff saw us waiting there. If this kind if service is acceptable for them it's not the kind of place that will make sure your food is top... More

No view. No glitz. Just really, fresh, delicious food at a reasonable price. The calmari steaks were the best we have ever had.
