Had GF options and great salad!
Good service as well.
We were there a little close to closing time and they were not bothered by it. Thank you!

“Quiet & relaxing dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

Our first evening in Kapaa we needed to relax after a rough flight and Kauai Pasta was convenient as it was across Kuhio Rd from our condo. We were seated in the middle of three dining rooms and it was perfect for a drink and dinner. Our server was extremely attentive and efficient without being "hovering". The Calamari appetizer was a huge portion, but somewhat rubbery. I had the Fettucini Alfredo with grilled shrimp and the alfredo sauce was better than I usually find at Italian restaurants at home. My wife had their Beef & Cheddar Ravioli, which I of course sampled, and it was very rich. The other couple both order Butternut Squash Ravioli and both raved about it. Overall, this was one of the better meals we had on Kauai.

“A great choice for dinner in Kapaa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

We had a lovely condo in Kapaa, oceanfront, and coming from winter in Canada, we love to sit outside as much as we can and enjoy the warmth of Hawaii, so we do a lot of takeout while we're on vacation and return with our meals to eat on the lanai while listening to the sound of the waves. We had read the reviews on Trip Advisor about the great pasta at Kauai Pasta, so when we called the restaurant, we were very happy to hear that takeout was available.
I had the house pasta with the homemade sauce (it was a really tough decision between that and the Pesto Pasta with Big Island macadamia nuts), and my husband had the lasagna with meat sauce. Both dishes were excellent and totally satisfied our craving for some really good pasta. The hostess was very friendly and we didn't wait long for our order to be filled. We would definitely go there again. My only regret is that we didn't try this restaurant sooner during our stay in Kauai so that we could have gone back and I could have tried the Pesto Pasta.

“Beautiful Food Perfect service Awesome Place TO Eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

Doesn't look like much from the outside- don't be fooled, this eatery is fantastic!
Even when we walked in we didn't expect much. The place is broke down into 3 areas small front seating, walk around the wall bigger seating area, walk around another wall bar!
Tastefully decorated in beautiful art, pretty tables.
Now the food is another wonderful thing altogether!
Started with a from scratch Caesar salad. So fresh with generous dressing.
Best fettuccini Alfredo ever!
Husband had lasagna very lovely too. He did wish it had more pasta in it.
Beautiful competent Server had the best "sea glass" silver earrings (made by a local friend if hers) on the entire island.
Her friend should sell these online.

“Oh my, you gotta try the Butternut Squash Ravioli!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

We were up in the air about going to Kauai Pasta solely based on some of the negative reviews about the service. We are very glad that we decided to go. We showed up around 6ish which was the perfect time because shortly after we got seated the entire place filled up super fast.

We had a couple of appetizers... the Crispy Calamari and the Caprese. Both were quite good but the soy-lemon aioli sauce on the Calamari was delicious. My husband and son split a pepperoni pizza. It was good although my husband is more of a fan of big pan pizzas.

On the other hand, my mom and I split the entrée Butternut Squash Ravioli that was on special. Holy Cow! This meal should be on the dessert menu. Butternut ravioli came with bacon, candied pecans in a marsala-sage butter sauce. So rich and delicious. We were stuffed after splitting it (4 ravioli each) so I can't even imagine being able to eat a whole full portion.

Our server, Michelle H., supplied us with the very best service that we have experienced on this Island... by far! She was great with our three year old and knew the menu really well. Thank you very much Michelle!
