Casual small space with AMAZING food!

I had read reviews of Ital in Paradise and made a mental note to stop there when in Christiansted. As I climbed the steep stairs into the very small restaurant (4 tables), I was a bit concerned initially (and had to convince my boyfriend to go in!). That concern turned to amazement and joy when our... read more

Chris is not only an amazing chef but an amazing person - so generous and friendly. I learned what Ital means and we should all be using this instead of gluten-free or vegan or organic, and especially "natural" since that doesn't mean anything anymore. I had the vegan entree 4 dinners in a row and my wife had the fish.... More

I ate Tofu Curry with Lentil Balls and it was divine! The menu varies by the day of the week but some standards are available everyday such as the lentil burger. The homemade drinks including lemonade and ginger beer were a bit sweet but tasty.

My son & I ate dinner in this tiny restaurant...I chose it because I am a vegetarian, but they also served fish here. Everything on my plate was scrumptious. My son really liked his tuna sandwich, even though he was hesitant to order it because it is a tuna filet and not canned tuna. The owner/waiter was so friendly &... More

Just had lunch there yesterday and was blown away. I had a vegan lunch special with BBQ tofu, rice grilled vegetables and salad. We also had the grilled cauliflower appetizer. Everything was great. Service was friendly and fast for fresh cooked meals. Cozy little second floor setting, busy with take away orders as w sat there. We have lived in... More

This was our lunchtime favourite. We had fresh fish on each of the four occasions went lunched there (mahi, tuna and salmon) with lentils, fired lentil balls, brown rice, curried cabbage, salad, all fresh cooked and prepared once we ordered. Healthy drinks included chlorophyll, (strong!) ginger pineapple and lemonade. The service was very friendly. The best place for lunch

The service was lovely, the food was delicious, healthy and affordable. I'd eat there every day if I lived on the island.

Great food, delicious veggies, tofu etc. Fish available on some days also. It's up some stairs on Queen Cross Street, mid block, so keep your eyes open for it. Small, intimate, and delicious.

Great place for drinks and food on the boardwalk in Christiansted. Food consistent for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and in between eating. Servers, cooks, bartenders, and managers friendly and always accommodating.

This place is so great, I couldn't believe what is was eating. I've been a food junky in rehab for many years but ital in paradise made me want to eat more and more. This little upstairs nook next to riddims has the smell of natural home cooking but the taste of five stars. Please do yourself a favor and... More
