Our waitress at Kauai Pasta was terrific! We had quick service with a smile...very efficient. I thought the pasta with meat sauce was bland and could have used more meat and more seasoning. Ask for extra sauce. Adequate food but nothing to write home about.

Very delicious (try the pasta, omg!) and very friendly staff! And a nice bar with local beer. A little expensive, but which restaurant is not in Hawaii?
