Above average food, very salty and i LOVE salt-when I told the young waiter he literally gave me a nervous laugh and walked away?! Seafood didn't taste fresh. This place feels dated in taste and style.

A little off the grid, but well worth locating. Food is tremendous and different from the excepted on the island. The best starter Calamari on the island, and we have tried it almost everywhere. We have frequented this restaurant over many years and have never been disappointed. Service is top notch.

I suppose Casa di Amici is "Italian", but it is really one of the most unique restaurant menus I have ever seen. While there are a few classic Italian dishes, most dishes start with an Italian concept and then add flavors from other regions - Thai, Mexican, Chinese, etc. - and it works wonderfully. My wife and I shared an... More

A friend had recommended this restaurant so we gave it a try on our visit to Kauai. Again Open table reservations worked great and we were seated quickly in a corner table looking out over a hedge and neighbors house, the staff were friendly and service started out well. I had the Thai beef satay risotto, it looked and tasted... More

location is poor, tucked away in timeshare and condo land. No ambience. Dated decor, harsh lighting, strange seating arrangements, one over worked waiter. I had Caesar salad, expected a dinner sized portion and got a side plate portion. Nothing stellar, and the shrimp was undercooked. Very nice large fresh shrimp, which is a huge plus, and normally overlooked and rubbery....so... More

Went here with friends who had dined previously and raved about it. It took a bit to find it but well worth the effort and the reviews were spot on. Knowledgeable and friendly service led by Randall as the owner, a great and unusual wine list and extensive menu. We all had starter and entree and all were delicious. Thoroughly... More

We recently visited Kauai and this was our first dining experience at Casa di Amici. Everyone was very nice and the meals were great. We enjoyed a beautiful table on the patio with a view of the ocean (had to look over the home next door). A very unexpected surprise in a residential neighborhood. Thank you for a wonderful evening... More

One would expect that an Italian restaurant would have several options for guests that do not eat meat. Not the case at this spot. With some effort, we were able to manage a meal but not easily. While the salads were fresh and tasty and the home made bread was good, the only menu item without meat was the Fettucine... More
