My wife and I were exploring and we were getting hungry. It was 2:45 PM and we saw a sign $9.95 Lunch from 11AM to 3 PM. So we took a chance that there might be some Lunch left over at the Kauai Pasta @ Kapaa. We parked and found the front door closed, but there was a sign saying come around to the bar entrance. We peeked in and a waitress said, "Here for Lunch?" We said, "Sure!" and she seated us. She gave us a limited menu, but it had things on it we recognized as some of our favorites. The she told us the specials. "We have a special soup today, a vegetable sausage that is the recipe of our cooks grandmother." It sounded very good. So I ordered that and the House pasta, my wife ordered a House salad and a simple pasta w/ tomato sauce. For $9.95, we both got two items off the menu. Both items were not only good, but they tasted out of this world! The special soup was by far the best and it was their last bowl. My wife and I took turns to try to finish our lunches, but we came up short. We brought some of the special pasta back, thinking we would have it later that evening. It never made it back to our hotel! The food was so good and so plentiful we had to ask about Dinner. Our waitress, who was very attentive, said that we were getting a little more than half of what a Dinner would be. Needless to say, we went back for another Lunch and a couple of dinners. We were not disappointed. The Pesto pasta is fabulous! This has to be the best value on the Island. We were lucky the first time going at the end of Lunch w/out a reservation. I would recommend a reservation for either Lunch or Dinner, because the place was packed on our return visits. Absolutely the best!
