We were returning to our hotel late and Kaua'i Pasta is easy to get to and we were seated with no wait. We left full and satisfied. Glad we found it!

I've been coming to Kauai for years and Kauai Pasta in Lihue is one of my go to places. Solid Italian food, great chicken and eggplant parmigiana. Actual all the dishes are very good. Reasonably priced. Trust me, I'm never wrong about good food... lol
