It's a little confusing but to get to the restaurant you go threw the KP Lounge. Most if the food was very good. The meatballs were dry and tasteless. Spaghetti, lasagne and panini were very good lists of flavor. Waitress seemed uninterested in her job. I would suggest it if you want some good pasta, don't expect good service.

Based on tripadvisor reviews, we decided to stop by Kauai Pasta Lihue for lunch. The food was excellent, but we found the lunch options to be very pricey, Everything was ala-carte. They should have at least included a side salad. Overall, it was a great meal. I had the brown rice pasta and sausage, since I am gluten sensitive, and... More

A very good restaurant with a reasonable menu. The food was good quality and the service was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant and suggest that they become a little more creative with their menu.

This restaurant is in a strip center but don't be fooled. It is dark, cozy and decorated very chic with local artwork. You can bring in your own wine but their selection is great too. The fresh spices and herbs in the pasta were delicious - I recommend their homemade meat sauce as well as any of the pasta dishes.

We stopped at Kauai Pasta Lihue for lunch based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were pleased to find that they have gluten free options. Two of us ordered House Pasta which was a nice sized portion of spaghetti topped with a fresh sauce of beef, mushrooms and Italian sausage, fresh grated Parmesan cheese and parsley. Another member of our group... More

Small space right in Lihue, Air Conditioning perfect for those hot, muggy Kauaian days. Can be loud as it is often crowded with locals enjoying meeting up with friends. The food and service are excellent - Italian entries and salads are tasty.

I don't understand how this place has such high reviews. The food was mediocre at best. Service was a bit slow but everything move on island time. We waited about 10 min before they even brought us water. Almost thought about leaving but didn't want to get back on the road since we were hungry. Ordered Caprese salad appetizer, Arugula... More
