“Excellent Alfredo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

All things considered (it IS in a strip center in Lihue, Hawaii) this place is absolutely worth at least one lunch or dinner while you are on Kauai. The alfredo sauce was as good as I've ever had! My wife had the appetizer size manicotti which was above average and plenty for her to make a meal of. The side of 'grilled' meatballs was just okay.

We will put this on the very short list of places worthy of a return visit when we can get back to the island.

“Average Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We were very tired after a long day of travel and I found this restaurant through the reviews on TripAdvisor. Even though there were some empty tables we had to wait to be seated. We were given our choice of table and opted to not sit next to the table with several small children. We shared an appetizer/side of corn with cheese. The corn came out on the cob! It was different and tasty. Our pasta dishes were average. The restaurant is small, and therefore feels a bit cramped. Parking was a challenge and we parked in a lot next to the restaurant. We checked to make sure we would not be towed and were told it would be ok.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Pasta dishes were a hit with my friends and I had a good salad. Down the road from Hilo Hatties, so you can shop and then zip up the street for refreshment. Pleasant wait staff as well.

“Great food, great staff, and overall good experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were told not to try any of the ethnic food on Kauai by a local, but we were in the mood for Italian, so we thought we would give it a try... we were pleasantly surprised!

We had a great chicken pesto pasta dish -- so yummy, and the waiter gave us great advice on the wine selection too. It was a wonderful dinner and if we ever vacation on Kauai again, I would DEFINITELY go back.

Highly recommend.
