We tried this spot after driving by many times on the recommendation of a friend, and it did not disappoint. We both agree that the service here is some of the best that we get anywhere on the island, which makes all of these other complaining reviews peculiar to me. Not only was our server on top of everything, so... More

Not sure what was going on in the back but the staff was laughing their heads off for most of our dinner. Our server was really nice and prompt but the rest of the staff had a bit of attitude, like they didn't want to be there. The butternut squash ravioli itself was really nice, but it was way over...

After a week + of fresh fish it was time to head to the airport for the long flight home. Lots of carbs to make us sleepy and probably fat for the trip home. Standard Italian.

We visit Kauai often and this restaurant is always on our list but not sure it will stay there. Service seemed disinterested and cursory. We had to ask twice for the complimentary bread. Flavors were good but food seemed hastily prepared...not sure my grilled shrimp were completely grilled. Maybe just a bad night for them.. Will wait and read further... More

We tried this after reading some guidebook recommendations. Now it's a regular return visit. Big menu, hard choices! It's a simple building along the highway and no ocean view, but you won't miss having a view when your food is this good.

Food was good, not great. They got us I. Without reservations, we sat in the bar. Service was okay, felt abandoned at times.

First off, we have been here many times and always felt welcomed and enjoyed the food in the bar and the restaurant. This time we weren't too hungry so we chose to eat in the bar and you enter from the side to reach that part of the restaurant. Upon entering, we saw all of the dining tables in the... More

We ate here twice during our four night stay in Kapaa. It was easy walking distance of our condo. The kids meals were only $5! Some of the cheapest we found on our week long trip. In fact, the second night we went for dinner, it was because the kids requested it. All of the food was great, but the... More

We have visited Kauai several times, and always make a point to eat at Kauai Pasta! Calamari is the best! Great pasta dishes and salads, good service.
