“Great Food, Spotty Service”
Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

We ordered delivery from Pizzetta twice while we were staying in Kauai. The first time we ordered we had pizza, and the order was delivered within 40 minutes. The pizza was delicious and not too overpriced considering the cost of food in Kauai. The second time we ordered delivery a few nights later (spaghetti and salad), we were told the food would be delivered in 45 minutes. After an hour and no food, I called, they had lost our order. After a total of an hour and a half, our food arrived, cold, and the delivery guy said he thinks they intentionally messed up our order because they don't like tourists, and he apologized. The food was cold, but still tasty. Definitely hit or miss with this place in terms of service, but it's pretty much the only option for delivery food in the Poipu Beach area.

“A great italian treat.”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We came back to the restaurant again after being there over a year ago and aside from it being a little less crowded the food was just as good. My wife couldn't wait to taste the meat lasagna and I chose the vegetarian pizza. The food is great and so is the service. There are more airy tables located in the back but the bar crowds up especially on sports event nights. The wait staff is friendly, courteous and very attentive. You don't have to wait too long for your meal and the prices are very reasonable. Try it.!!

“Relaxed pizza joint, not so good service”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Pizza was great, prices were decent. It was a nice break from resort food and drink. However, our server there was terrible. Didn't even catch her name or I would have put it in this review to make sure you didn't get her. There were only a handful of tables and we got in around 8-ish to eat. She treated us like we were such a bother and wouldn't even let us sit on the patio because they were closing soon she said. Our beers never made it to us so we had to go to the bar and get them ourselves. Even the bartender told us to let him know if we need anything....that should have been hint enough that she was horrible. After about 5 minutes of dropping off our pizza she asked if we were done and needed a to-go box. We were like uh....nope, still eating. Then she continued to ask us if we were done. It got really irritating. So, good pizza, bad service!

Nice happy hour at this little place in Koloa. Lots of local characters hanging out at the bar. Reasonable prices.

“Great pizza and pasta”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Very relaxed place with great pizzas and yummy pasta dishes. We ate here with some friends and their two young children and the staff went out of their way to get a table set up for us, brought cups with lids for the kids and offered a kids menu.

My husband and I shared a 12" pizza with ham and artichokes and it was excellent - the crust was nice and crispy and there were plenty of toppings. It was also filling, we didn't need starters or dessert. My friend had the shrimp fettucini and loved it. Cocktails on the small side but tasty. Would definitely go back!
