What a great find! Nice local place with great Italian food. So-so Mai Tai's, but the food was wonderful! Plenty of delicious gluten free options too! Try the pesto pasta, it was an amazing local twist with macadamia nuts. Pizzas are homemade and delicious thin crust. Plenty of comfortable seating and clean bathrooms. Highly recommended!

Took the advice of a travel book and tried this place out. The exterior of the building doesn't look like much but the taste of the food more than compensated. Very low priced compared to most places in Kauai. Two days later we went back again because everyone in our group thought it was so good. There is one owned... More

The food and drinks were great and reasonably priced. Service was also very good. Doesn't look like much from the outside, so don't be put off by that.

|Recommended by a shop keeper. At first glance it does not seem like much but step inside. Great place food superb, service above average, I wish I could have saved the leftovers but we were leaving the next morning I rate this as a must go to in Kapaa. Along with ONO restaurant for breakfast just up; the road.

Looking for Italian food other night and some recommended the Kauai Pasta in Kapaa. It was a great suggestion. The inside is kind of weird shape in that there is a dining room and then a back dining room and then a bar. We ate in the first room. It was a little dark to read the menu but we... More

It doesn't look promising from the outside, but the minute you walk in the door the delicious smells hit you and your impression improves enormously. We were not let down, the food was very good (the butternut squash ravioli excellent, a bit sweet; the pesto pasta slightly dry, but good). The bread was superb, we bought an extra helping.

I was really surprised to get such a horrible plate of pasta and salad. The restaurant actually was recommended by a local resident. I have never given a scathing bad review on anything but I can say this restaurant and it's food totally deserves it. First it was 5:00 p.m. I asked for a booth ( several were available) I... More

Thank you for your feedback. However, the items you are describing are not ones we serve. We do not have a pasta special of the day or a 'special house salad.' We also do not serve a spinach salad with feta cheese and olive oil, so we are unsure what dish you had. Perhaps you are mistaking us for another... More
