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

Kauai Pasta was on our list of places to try on our vacation and it was pretty disappointing. It was difficult to find the restaurant because there was a different sign on the front so after three drive-by attempts we finally saw the restaurant name on the window. The service was terrible - waitress decided to just chat with others... More

This spot is near our hotel resort and wasn't on Open Table. It's a small restaurant, with a small but well-stocked bar. We loved it. Highlights: the meatball side, the roasted cauliflower with yogurt side, the greek pasta with shrimp. They have a unique take on pesto (they use macadamia nuts). Even the iced-tea was special. (Infused with guava or... More

This is a place that draws a 20 - 30's crowd. Delicious fresh made pasta, pesto and everything else. Non-sweetened local tea is as tasty as their libations. Salads are very good and local fresh. K. P. Lihue was sooo goood that we did the Kapaa location too.

We were a tad confused when it came to visiting this restaurant. It seems that there are two KP restaurants, one in Lihue, the other in Kapaa. For the haole - these towns are about 7 miles apart. We went to the Lihue establishment. The menus are the same however, and it would appear that they are both owned by... More

Only 10 or so tables, expect a wait no matter when. They do carry out. I am a pasta lover and whoever is cooking, gets it right. The Caprese appetizer was outstanding and fresh. The side of garlic bread with dinner was not over soaked like some. I had the angel hair with toss. All was very lovely. The wine... More

Local residents as well as travelers can count on great service, delectable menu and easy access to taking dinner home one night, lunch with visiting business comrades or a night out. Greek Pasta serves up the flavor consistently and a must for our table; the House pasta is simple and homestyle; warm goat cheese and arugula salad never disappoints and... More
