Engaging staff, kid friendly, locals love, moderately priced. Parking is right in front of the building. The Capilini with shrimp was excellent as was the Kihuana Farms salad and Portabello Mushroom salad.

We had lunch before getting to the airport...very conveniently located close to the terminal. The service was very very slow and the restaurant was not too busy. Our server appeared overwhelmed but was kind and friendly. We waited at least 10 minutes for our order...More

We live on Kauai and come here often. It's not easy to find good food in Lihue, so we really value Kauai Pasta. I eat pretty strict Whole Food Plant Based which can be very difficult to find, but this place accommodates. I get their...More

We stumbled across this gem, looking for a quick bite. We were greeted quickly and seated. We shared a pasta dish and a pepperoni pizza. The serving size was perfect and the food was delicious. Friendly staff and fairly fast service. Would definitely recommend.

All eight of us were fairly disoriented and I thought since this was close to the airport, we should do all right -- and we really did. Great service, super appetizers and entrees -- we were very pleased. Very convenient and well done. As a...More

We had a very nice dinner at Kauai Pasta Lihue, starting with a Caesar salad and a Garden Salad that were both fresh and good, then followed by the Chicken Parmigiana and the Spaghetti Bolognese, which were very tasty and well prepared. Even though the...More

The food was excellent, as was the service by Lionel! We were greeted right away, shown to a table, and waited on very quickly, even though we showed up for a late dinner about 8ish. Chicken Parm and Penne was nicely done and tasty. Spinach...More

This is a source of confusion as the restaurant called Kauai Pasta had two locations - one in the town of Kapaa (939b Kuhio Hwy) and one in the town of Lihue (3-3142 Kuhio Hwy). However, I believe they are no longer... More
