Went based on a friend's recommendation and were a bit disappointed. The place is crazily organized and wanders through three different spaces connected. Said there was a bar but we had trouble locating it - all the way to the back, an unusual location. Meat balls and pasta sauce had a strange seasoning and odd taste. One person ordered the... More

After two weeks in Kauai and eating their wonderful fish and seafood almost every day, my husband and I had a hankering for pizza. Other than a couple of chains, Kauai is not famous for their Italian food but relying on a local's suggestion we decided to try Kauai Pasta, and am I glad we did. The pizza is totally... More

Ate at Kauai Pasta our last night on the island at the recommendation of a local and good reviews on tripadvisor. Absolutely don't recommend it!! We were seated right away without reservations, but it took our waitress a good 10 minutes to greet us. By then we knew what we wanted and ordered. We got an appetizer of meatballs and... More

Great food. We did not have a reservation so took the first available seating in the front area which doesn’t have much atmosphere but the back might – didn’t see it. But our meals were delicious and the service, cordial. Entrees from $12.00 – $24; pizza about $15. Good value.

I've eaten at both Kauai Pasta locations. I much prefer the Kapaa location. It has a larger menu selection, including Parmesan/Truffle oil fries that seriously are to die for. The decor here is simple, not at all a fancy place with any ambience to speak of, but for great food and reasonable prices, it hits the mark. I always enjoy... More

The restaurant is nondescript inside but we went there for the food! My husband and I had a great dinner at Kaua'a Pasta! We didn't make a reservation but arrived at 6:00 and were immediately greeted, seated, given water and several menus. These included the wine list, specials, regular and bar menus. A small loaf of warm bread and butter... More

A friend recommended Kauai Pasta in Lihue. We ate there and it was superb...appetizers, salads and main courses, and a fine bread pudding among other desserts. We stayed in Kapaa which had same restaurant. Found out that the couple who owned them split up and each took one of the restaurants. Despite whatever personal differences, their care for their menu/quality... More

Our party of 5 all ordered something different -clams, eggplant parmesan, fettuccine Alfredo, chicken pesto- everything was delicious. A of our dishes were Flavorful, properly cooked and at perfect temperature. The portions were generous, the service prompt and friendly. It does not look like much from the outside but it's a cute and comfortable restaurant with delicious well priced food.

Staff was attentive enough: filled our water, brought our food and later our check, nothing above an beyond, but absolutely nothing bad either. A couple of vegetarian options for me to choose from. Food presentation was nice and had good blend of flavors. I had the pesto pasta and my husband had chicken parmesan. Mine was very good and his... More

I was staying in Kapa'a and looking for a restaurant near my hotel. I read several great reviews about Kauai Pasta Restaurant & Lounge. Overall very impressive. The restaurant itself is not large but spotless. There is a lounge area as well. We did not have reservations but arrived early for dinner and were seated in a very comfortable booth.... More
