My wife and I ate lunch here while vacationing on Kauai. It was terrific. We had a salad and the pesto noodles. Our service was great. It was in the middle of town so sadly no ocean views.

Great recommendation from our hotel concierge! Wish we could have tried more of their food, since it all looked so fresh and what we had was delicious. We started with an appetizer of Parmesan herb crusted mozzarella, which was like a fried mozzarella with marinara sauce, and it was served with the most delicious pieces of garlic bread. I only...

This is one of my favorite places to eat! They have such a wonderful menu to order from. And the waitresses are so awesome. I visit this place every time I am on the Island. Aloha

My wife and I went to dinner last night without a reservation and we didn't have to wait more than 10 minutes. For we will serve the waitress asked us if we would mind moving to another table so they could accommodate our large family. Not a problem; unfortunately The waitress forgot our appetizer and then handed me someone else's... More

4 of us went to dinner at the small Italian restaurant in Lihue. We all loved each of our dishes. The lobster and crab ravioli was superb. Their salads are all made with very fresh local ingredients. We will go again before we leave the Island.

A good local friend and fellow foodie brought me here more than once during my visit. Each time, the meals were amazingly tasty and well portioned. I even grabbed a dinner to go for my flight home!

My wife and I stopped here before our long flights home from Kauai. Got there for lunch and wasn't disappointed. They have a lunch menu which was very favorably priced with generous portions. My wife had the chicken Parmesan and I had the spaghetti in meat sauce. Bot were very flavorful and hit the spot in sustaining us for our... More

I don't understand how this restaurant gets such a high rating. The ambiance is OK. The presentation is great. However the food is just average. I love gnocchi and was really looking forward to their homemade gnocchi with seafood and spinach. However, it was more like a cream soup with a few gnocchi submerged in it. The cream was nothing...

Our first night on Kauai we depended on the opinions of the Trip Advisor raters...and while KP Lihue was a small restaurant that didn't look like it deserved the #1 rating, it does! The special, the filet with mushrooms, asparagus and au gratin potatoes in a mushroom sauce was so tender and flavorful! The choipino was spicy and full of... More
