While I only ordered the caprese salad and meatballs, I felt that these would give a good representation of the food. Excellent meatballs and sauce. I could not finish my meal and what I took home was still really good the next day. It does get busy, and either order to go, or make reservations.

The Greek Pasta is our favorite right off of the plane; you know... when you are starving! This has two locations, one is in a strip mall (the first locations) the second is behind the taco bell. The second one has a full bar and a pineapple upside down cake martini that is dessert! Great choice for lunch or dinner!

A little place tucked into a mini mall kind of place. Not to hard to find. Wonderful Italian food. Unlike some reviewers, we had good service. The decor leaves a lot to be desired and it's kind of a weird layout. If you are in the front there may be a bunch of people walking past to a large room... More

Really bad setting/ambiance, very plain decor, didn't feel particularly clean, and no music made all was off putting. The food was surprisingly good, including one of the better Caesar salad I've had and a pretty solid lasagna. The service was okay, not great, but not awful.

Good food. Oddly if not slightly strange restaurant layout but don't let that stop you. The food is good, mid to high price. One of the few places on the island open later into the evening.

From the outside we didn't think this was going to be good but we were absolutely wrong! The food was really good and took some home for those that couldn't make it out and they loved it too. Make a reservation if you go, we didn't and had a wait for a bit to get seated.

We went here with high hopes, thanks to the recommendation of the 10th edition of the "blue book". We were disappointed. My chicken parmigiana was basic and fairly tasteless. My wife's dinner was much the same. And the service was LACKING. We had trouble getting their attention to pay...which should be on the top of their list! Not recommended.

It will not go down as one of our all time great meals. But I can say we really liked our meals and definitely would return. I truly wish I could remember our servers' name.... regardless she did a great job. Answered our questions, described the specials well and kept the drinks full.

There's nothing wrong with Kauai Pasta, but there's nothing particularly noteworthy about it either. The decor is rather nondescript. Food presentation has little to no flare. Everything tasted ok, but rather unremarkable. And from a value standpoint, it's pricey since everything is a la carte, including things like a simple salad.

We try to eat here a couple times during each visit because the service is always professional yet warm & welcoming and the food is excellent and beautifully presented. This is not the sort of restaurant that decorates a plate & then places a dabble of food on it -- bring your appetite! Pasta offerings were delicious (according to my... More
