At Kauai Pasta, we take great pride in our food. We believe that food tastes best when it"s made fresh using only the finest quality ingredients. All of our sauces, dressings and desserts are made daily in our kitchens. When creating Kauai Pasta, we set out to establish a restaurant that people could dine at more than just once in a while. We did this by crafting a menu that was both affordable and diverse, offering everything from simple pasta dishes to extravagant steak entrees created by our team of talented chefs. On this site you will find the most current menus for both locations as well as a wine list with some of the most delectable varietals available. Be sure to check back soon, as we update our menus seasonally with new entree selections. In addition, we offer holiday menus and special wine pairing dinners.

Service is dreadful. Food is served late, cold, and too salty.
I would recommend this restaurant for avoidance.
Boil up some pasta at home, chop up some tomatoes, basil and garlic and simply don't bother with Kauai Pasta.

Quick getting us back to a table. Drinks took a long time to get. The food came out in twos. So 2 pizzas then 10 mins later, two kids pasta, then 10 minutes later 2 adult meals and lastly the other adult meals. Kids were done long before the adults even had their food. Floor was slippery. One of the kids fell. Food was just okay.

My grandson had a great time on his fifth birthday/first time at Kauai Pasta, and says he can’t wait to come back again. The House Pasta and meatballs were delicious.

The service was very good! We chose to dine at the bar and the two bartenders that served our drinks and meals, Tyler and Cy, were super friendly and were able to make dining recommendations for us. My husband selected the special Braised Short Ribs - they were outstanding. I selected the Veal Marsala which was disappointing. The veal was thick and chewy, and the breading (Panko) was soggy. Overall though, it was a good experience. They do have a lunch special that they advertise which looked like a good deal, so we may go back to try the lunch pasta specials.

The place is very outdated, waitress took 30 minutes to acknowledge us. We had to flag her down to place our order. Food was good, atmosphere was horrible and the layout of the restaurant was all chopped up. Super weird.

The front of the house is unorganized. The food is decent but the pizza was too salty, spinach and artichoke dip was bland, at least the caprese was good. They also ran out of a couple dishes.

Excellent lunch experience today! The service was friendly and quick. Our food was delicious. Members of our party had salad, pasta, and a panini. We especially enjoyed the daily lunch special options. Great food, great value! I’m sure we will return soon.

The ambience of the restaurant itself was old and outdated. But the winning factor would be the food. I’d highly recommend the butternut squash. It was one of the best meals I’ve had while being on the island. I do recommend sitting away from the front desk if possible as their phone repeatedly rings at a higher than necessary volume. Overall good experience.

Not bad Italian. My issue was that half of our meals came out lukewarm, but maybe we caught them on a bad night.

In all honesty, I was pretty disappointed. I had read all of the reviews and deemed that this place would be a 50/50 shot of impressing me. But I decided to give it a chance anyways. My fiance and I were celebrating our engagement and I wrote it as a note when I made the reservation but when we got there, it wasn't even acknowledged. On top of that, our food took longer to come out than the table who was seated after us, even though we ordered the same exact 2 appetizers. I wondering if they gave our appetizers to that table first by mistake? Also, the food itself was not worth the price. I got the pesto chicken pasta and my fiance got the steak; both of which were very dry. Needless to say, we will not be coming back when we visit Kaua'i again. This place is very overpriced and the value for the price isn't exactly worth it at all.

Awesome tasting house meat sauce - best I have had in a long time... My food could have been hotter - sent it back once and it was still only a bit hotter than warm, however, the waitress told us they comped that meal - a pleasant surprise. Service was good and the food was great - great Caesar salad as well and our waitress also removed a glass of wine from our bill that I disliked... Can't beat that!!! We'll be back!!
