Basic Italian style restaurant with a nice varied menu. Very good quality food. A little on the pricey side. Nice wine list. Again a little pricey. Good service. Sometimes a bit slow to get a table. Just of the main road towards the back of the lot. Good parking.

After being in Hawaii for close to two weeks my husband and I were missing our tradition Italian dish. Often enough we find places that are just OK compared to home. Well I swear these owners must be transplants from either NY or NJ. Everything was amazing. We had the steamed clams app and it was one of the best... More

We stopped for lunch on our way to the airport after our vacation. We were not expecting to get good Italian on an island in the middle of the Pacific, but boy were we surprised! Excellent food for reasonable prices (by Kauai standards). Everyone in my family got something different and everything was great. Servers were very friendly and attentive.... More

We went here on the recommendation of the Doc that took my husbands stitches out after his fall at Bangkok Happy Bowl. This was the BEST food we had on our vacation! We all had spaghetti which has very good not sweet meat sauce. Portion were perfect and priced well $12ish. Nothing comes with it. Place was paced at 6:30,... More

We had a dinner here on a Thursday. The place is on the small side and it was busy by 5:30-6:00. I had the Chicken Parmesan and my wife spaghetti. If you like garlic, then you can order what you like and you will be happy. They only sometimes have Lasagna which my wife prefers, tonight was not one of... More

Great local eatery, no reservations so come early 5:30 - place will be packed by 6:30. I loved the lingunie and clams, delicious sauce. Wife liked the veal Marseille, wine list was ok California Raymond Cabernet Savinon for $40.00. Also full bar. Try the decadent chocolate cherry brownie with ice cream $10.00.

There was four of us that went for supper, the food was absolutely delicious, we had 3 appetizers, each had an entry and 3 of us had a drink, and it was only $110.00 for all of us. That was the only place we all enjoyed our meal and didn't have to break the bank.

As a resident of Kauai, I've visited a lot of the restaurants on offer. Kauai Pasta Lihue is one I favor for lunch, if I can get a table early and get out before the crowd makes it impossible to hear table conversation. My fave lunch treat is the portobello panini which comes with a choice of salad. The large... More

My husband and I stopped here after a day of touring. This is a cozy restaurant with a VERY attentive wait staff. Everyone is quite friendly without intruding on your dining experience. The food was truly excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience here.
