“Excellent Food”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

If you are going to eat here, you must have the butternut squash ravioli and the calamari. The salads are delicious as well. The lounge offers a cozy atmosphere for 2 or 4 where you can order drinks as well as food.

“Very Very Good”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

It may not be Little Italy but we enjoyed the time there. Plenty of food. Very nice quality. Service was nice and down to earth. Prices were so very reasonable especially for Hawaii and Kauai. We would definitely recommend to anyone staying in or near Kapaa.

“Great Italian on Kauai”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Growing up in an Italian family - I didn't expect much from an Italian restaurant in Hawaii - but I was pleasantly surprised! Salads were huge and excellent (best greens we had on the island) and the mains were outstanding! Meatball were clearly handmade - tasting like they had the "standard" veal, pork, and beef combo I would expect. My wife's lasagna was delicious and didn't taste like it had been frozen (u can tell). 5/5 and servers were super helpful and ever present. Loved it!

“Food Tasty but Service Poor”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

They serve very good food and have excellent specials. I had Butternut Squash Ravioli and my wife had the Pasta with Meat Sauce. Both were very good but mine was hot and her's was cold. I think mine was done first and sat under heat lamps which got it hot. They came out together and her pasta was cold.

Service was extremely slow. It was 15 minutes to get a drink and another 30 minutes to get our meals. We never saw our waiter except when he brought the drinks and food. Trying to wave someone down to get a spoon or parmesan cheese was a big effort.

To us, it's not worth it to go back even though the food was pretty good.

KSkauai, Owner at Kauai Pasta Kapaa, responded to this review, October 22, 2013
Dear Customer,

Thank you for your business. We were dismayed to get your review. All the food served should be hot, so we apologize for your wife's not being the right temperature. Had you let a manager know, we would have gladly made you a new a hot dish immediately. We also apologize for the service you experienced, and this is not typical of our restaurant or what we expect from our staff. We want all our customers to feel pampered and taken care of, and we are sorry this was not your experience. We hope you will give us another chance in the future.

Aloha, Kauai Pasta Owners

“Awesomely great food!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This place was everything it was billed to be. I have never had such fantastic Fettuccine Alfredo. We also had the Chicken Parmesan, also great. We had 10 in our party, and the service was fantastic. Everyone loved their meals, it was an excellent choice and easy to see why they are top rated.
