Very pricy for what you get. It probably is the best pasta on the island but we are a long way from Italy so that isn't saying much. Last I checked Hawaii wasn't know for Italian food. Bartender / waitress was very nice and the pear martini was amazing. I do not recommend the lobster ravioli - very fishy. The... More

Someone at the airport car rental in Lihue, Hawaii recommended this restaurant to us because places near the airport were too busy since a cruise ship had just arrived. We went; we ate; and we loved it. It was so good that we brought 2 more with us and overall we ate there 3 times in one week. I even... More

Since we "island hopped" to Lihue from Hilo starting early in the morning, we hadn't had much to eat when we arrived in the early afternoon. Italian seemed to strike a cord and my wife found the good rating for KP Lihue on TripAdvisor. And it's not far from the Lihue airport although we missed it heading south. Maybe that's... More

The seating is really limited and I cannot blame other parties for not leaving, however, we waited for 30 min and still have no seat. We ended up ordering take out, wait for another 20 min or so and then run out the door. Food taste great still but I highly recommend just order ahead and take it back to... More

Just arrived and wanted lunch, we've been to the other PK location and decided to try this one. The food was great. We stayed with appetizers for a lite lunch, we over ordered. The meatballs were tasty and had just the right amount of herbs and spices. The special soup of the day was a tasty pureed mushroom with a... More

This is a fairly small almost "hole in the wall" place with really good food. We were there late-afternoon and a group of 10 (which I gather was unusual) kept the lone waiter pretty busy and getting his attention for a "we forgot" request was pretty much impossible. Other than that, and the limited street parking out front, we thoroughly... More

Our friends had just arrived and we were all hungry. We had read the TA review and stopped in around 1:30. We were seated immediately, provided with a nice wine selection and were very happy with our lunches. I had a pasta with chicken in basil pesto sauce and it was excellent. Our friends both had similar dishes. My husband... More

I go here at least once a week for their fantastic pasta (I'm a pesto lover), wine and for the great company of the staff. Adam & Savannah are great, Actually they are all great but I'm horrible with names! You won't be disappointed!
