    First, is certainly nothing wrong with the food, as this was visit two in a week. Second, The poor service was our server alone. Our first visit the service was spot on. Polite, attentive, made recommendations, checked in on our meal, refilled our wine, and offered us a complementary dessert in honor of our honeymoon. As for visit two: Service was far from what I would consider even passible to be called "service". We saw him twice, no exaggeration. Once to take our order and then again with check. We sat most of our meal without drinks. He even walked by our table, but ignored us. Please do not shy away from this place due to what I can only assume is one bad server, but just to be safe, ask for Daniqua, she's fantastic.

    The food here was nothing great. My husband had a chicken parm dish. It had pasta under the chicken. It looked like tomato soup on the pasta. It had so much liquid on the bottom. I had Ono the local fish with lemon and capers it was good but salty.

    The staff and owner could not have been any nicer to my husband and myself. Somehow they figured out we were on our honeymoon and we received delicious gelato on the house! The pizza and spinach dip were delicious and cooked perfectly! We will be going back before we go home!

    We always visit the island every other year and make it a point to eat @ Pizzetta. It was fantastic - the service, the meal, the ambiance. The kids really enjoyed the pizza. I wish they had draft beer vs bottled beer, but that's okay too! We also enjoyed an ice cream cone afterwards. Very delicious meal. Can't miss!!

    I was excited to try this restaurant. The pizza was a bit disappointing. It actually reminded me of a pizza chain type pizza. Now, I didn't try the thin crust pizza because our waiter suggested the regular crust, so perhaps the thin is better? Yes, I'm spoiled because I eat Chicago style pizza and this is why I reluctantly recommend Pizzeta's.

    Spent a week in Kauai this was our only disappointment. Looked like a decent atmospheres but:server was not friendly, it took forever to get a pizza and it was horrible. We are not very picky as this is the first bad review we have ever written.

    My family was on vacation in Kauai and we actually enjoyed Pizzeta and the Old Koloa town so much that we went twice! The pizza was my favorite- I'm a big fan of the super combo! They have a cool assortment of apps as well (Fried zucchini). Not to mention the restaurant itself has a very unique, local feel to it.

    We have been here many times and it always good. The meatballs are excellent. I don't honk the pizza is as good as the rest of the food on the menu. It is very fair priced for the island. It is always on our list when we return to the island

    While appearance was good it all went down hill from there. Appetizer mix wasnt bad but rather small for price. Ordered variety of Dishes, which were ok. One of the pizzas we ordered was clearly not what we ordered, 12 inch not the 16 and wasn't even what we ordered. Appears they made it with all the incredients from both pizza orders. Second pizza was brought last seemingly a bit later than everything else. They made the correct pizza which at this point we did not really want and did not charge us for either pizza. Probably would never go back there.

    It's hard to review a restaurant when all we did was wait: to order wine, to get wine (which was finally delivered by the bartender - our waitress was missing in action) and so on. The wine was really awful, the salads hadn't been delivered after a thirty minute wait, so we paid the bartender for the wine....and left. On our way out the front door, we saw our waitress coming in, and she cheerily asked if we had enjoyed our dinner. Well, no.

    We have been going to Pizetta for years. Their thin crust is great, they will let you split specialty pizzas so you can enjoy two different tastes without pizza overload. The staff is friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is a pizza joint although sitting on the back porch does make for a little different dining experience. Bon apetit!

    Small restaurant with a few tables on a patio in the back. There was a small bar with 2 TVs so customers could watch sports. Menu had several choices to make most people happy. We had the Chicken Parmesan and Spaghetti with meat sauce. Both entrees were tasty with enough food to fill you up. Quaint restaurant. Not fancy. Great place to come after a day at the beach.

    We had a good time and the food was quite good, especially the BBQ chicken pizza and the baked zucchini sticks. We were with kids and while we appreciate quick service with the kids we really got the feeling they were trying to rush us out as soon as the pizza was delivered. They tried to clear plates while people were still eating and brought us a box to take home the leftovers while we were still eating as well! Other than the uncomfortable feeling of being pushed out the service was reasonably attentive and the servers were generally quite friendly.

    Always a great place that is consistent and delicious/well prepared food. Gets busy so the noise ebbs and flows, all good. First time I made an online reservation, busy weekend and I arrived and was seated immediately with a large number of people waiting. NICE Always a must visit when on Kauai thanks
