This restaurant is fantastic! I've been frequenting this restaurant for over a decade and still love it! The pastas and Osso Bucco are beyond delicious! The ambiance is lovely and staff are always top-notch. I eat there a minimum of 3 times during each vacation and always miss it when I'm home.

Wonderful food and wine. We had the best chicken parmesan and a shrimp and scallops diavalo that were amazing! Our host Matthew Richardson was super friendly and made us feel like family. I highly recommend this place if you are done with the American fare served at most of the hotels--try some great Italian!

A cozy, upscale hideaway with luscious menu. Would recommend if not a local, you go in group. There is security that will escort you to car.

The homemade pasta selections were terrific - especially the vegetarian lasagna, probably the best I've ever had! The personal attention by the knowledgeable chef was extraordinary! What a great evening we enjoyed at Virgilio's! Can't wait to return.

My wife and I visited Virgilio's 3/5/'14 and were delighted. On a deserted side street (weekday night) the restaurant wasn't busy at all. Felt like we received personalized service. Decent and reasonable wine list, but the highlights were table-side prepared Caesar Salad and,again, table-side prepared Bananas Foster. As others have said atmosphere is intimate with a diverse group of paintings.... More

We went to Virgilio's further to the recommendation of the inn keepers where we were staying (At Home in The Tropics, an amazing B&B). Place is small and cozy, with high ceilings and walls covered in all sorts of paintings, a very interesting art collection, eclectic. Service was friendly. My husband had the carpaccio appetizer, very good. I had the... More

I have been going to St. Thomas for nearly 10 years and never even heard about Virgilio's until my jeweler friend recommended them. If you are looking for AUTHENTIC Italian meals an an intimate setting, THIS is the place! The problem is trying to find them. They are tucked away off Main street at what is shown on a sign... More

This is the type of restaurant that my wife and I only frequent occasionally (we live in St. Thomas) as we have never had a bad experience...and don't want to ruin it. Although the location is not great especially at night, the food and staff are amazing. Portion sizes are just right for those who don't want a lot of... More

Wonderful ambiance, fantastic food, friendly and attentive staff. One of the best Italian meals I've had outside of Italy. You will not go wrong having a meal here or entertaining clients if you need to. Friends of ours who go the USVI 3 times a year alway have at least one meal here each time they go.

Location is little scary at night. Decor is little different. But when it came to food it was wonderful including deserts. I would definitely recommend this place.
