Ok, the prices are a bit high for us working class folks, but this is the only good Italian place you're going to find on Kauai. We come here for fancy family gatherings (aka an excuse to put on cute dresses and aloha shirts once and awhile!) The only downside is the Lihue location is very tight quarters, but other... More

Their marinara sauce is great. Jared sauce gives me heartburn and is salty and sometimes sour. Their marinara is sweet tomatoey and no heartburn what so ever.

Have dined at both the Lihue and Kapaa Kauai Pasta, and both offer excellent food,service, and hospitality! The minestrone soup, which I have almost every time is superb, along with all of the Italian dishes. We have several tourist activities, and highly recommend both when asked where to find a nice restaurant!

Quality tasting food all around. Loved the chicken parm and cooked so well i could cut it with a fork. The sauce was very well made. My wife had the french onion soup app and I had the crab cakes. both were excellent. It was good to have some Italian after a couple of weeks of Hawaiian seafood. The only... More

My family and I ate here twice while visiting Kauai. The food was delicious, especially the Mozzarella appetizer and the Chicken Parm. The menu is diverse, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the service was great.

Wow! Been here a few times and never a bad experience. Walking into the small restaurant, you smell aroma of garlic and cheese. Yum. Excellent service and delicious meals. I had a really nice Greek pasta with feta, olives and basil. Large portions. My husband enjoyed manicotti. Just a lovely evening away from the madding crowd. Go!

We live on Kauai and this is our go to restaurant for Italian food. They have a great selection of food and wines. Prices are just right. Keep in mind this is a small restaurant so go early or late.

We were twice in this restaurant because the dishes are really tasty. The second visit we had to wait very long for our dinner. The room is comfortably cooled but not too much.

Had dinner with my staff and we were all satisfied with our meals. Really enjoyed the pizza and calzone. Seemed to be very fresh a db the dough was light.....not dense like most doughs. Kind of a sweet taste. The pasta was good but a little pasty. Lasagna was excellent and full of meat. One complaint.....seemed like the waitresses were... More
