Italian/Hawaiian fusion? Why not, we very much enjoyed Kauai Pasta's Italian food using local seafood and ingredients. My pasta dish with ahi was delicious. My wife's seafood stuffed ravioli was equally good if not better. Service was excellent. Recommended.

Were sat immediately upon arrival. Ordered an appetizer which took quite awhile but eventually arrived.

We have previously dined at the KP location in Kapaa. This was our first experience at the Lihue location. All of the items we sampled were delicious, well prepared and featured obviously fresh ingredients. The space is a bit cramped and basic, but like I always say, you don't eat ambience, but you will pay for it. I'll take good... More

We are vegetarian. And the 3 kind veggie pastas they had were good enough for us to come back to this place the very next day.
