Pickup Pizza

Highly recommended. I've been coming to St John for 10 years. This was the first time we did take out pizza. It was excellent. Very economical or a great option if to have small kids. Parking can be an issue but can work out a deal with Slim Man's parking down the road.

This is a great place to get a pizza and salads. I highly recommend this place. Very friendly service, you feel you at home. If you are on the island do yourself a Favour and come here. The bar man was great and very friendly, we felt we are very important here :) Enjoy!

It was so good we came back the next night! Pizza and appetizers were amazing! Chicken Parm with Fettuchine Alfredo was outstanding! Great wine and service/timing was Spot On! Great place, don't miss it.

One of the best dinners I had on the island...the food was excellent and portions are huge! You could easily split an entree, but you wouldn't have that great, late night snack! The meatballs are perfectly prepared with a deep, rich flavor. The pasta is al dente, fresh and the chicken was very flavorful as well. This is a must... More

In all of my visits to St. John, I had never had the opportunity to visit Cafe Roma until a week ago 5/28/15. I have to say I was not at all impressed by the pizza. The sauce was way too sweet & IMO not very good at all. I also ordered the greens salad, which is just that, greens... More

I just called for take out to order some famous island pizza and the guy on the phone ruined it for us. This person couldn't hear me and was impatiently annoyed. I played it off and assumed he was having a bad night and in the weeds or something. I spoke up loudly saying "Can you hear me now?" He... More

Called for take out pizza last night. Both the person on the phone and at the bar was very friendly & helpful. We enjoyed the pizza and will return in the future.

Went here for dinner with high expectations as the restaurant was very busy. Lots of people ordering pizza takeouts. Our dinners were disappointing. Penne Boccoli with garlic white wine sauce was so bland, no flavor. Chicken cacciatore entree was loaded with oregano and owerpowered the dish. We had a pitcher of sangria which was even tasteless and watered down. Service... More

We took a look at serval Italian rest while in St John. We found this one and as we started up the stairs saw several people leaving and asked them what they thought-everyone said it was great and they had been here several times so we gave it a try. It was a good choice. Wine----Good selections Food----Very Good Service--Nice... More

An evening with friends over a delicious meal at Café Roma. The salads were fresh, and meal-size. The risotto balls were delicious - well paired with a tasty tomato sauce. My only complaint would be the appetizer & entrée portions were quite large - and that's really not a complaint at all :)
