We had a great meal at Cafe Roma. It is right above Longboard and you enter from an outdoor staircase to the side. With all of the activity below at Longboard, we hadn't looked up to notice when walking by during most of the week. However, the wait staff was kind and attentive, and the food was... read more

We went here for pizza after a day of hiking. It was delicious! We sat at the bar (you have to if you are ordering pizza), had a few drinks, and a fun chat with our bartender.

Not only was the pizza outstanding, Tyler, the bartender, was extremely entertaining while we waited for our order. Would definitely recommend this place.

Cafe Roma is the best Italian restaurant in St John! The service was amazing! Everyone is super nice, from Patrick and our 2 other servers to the bartender, the chef, and the owner. The capresé salad was delicious, and the cheese pizza was the BEST! I came here countless times and can't wait to go back!

Had dinner there tonight. It was awesome! Pizza and lasagna were great! My family asked to get pizza carryout tomorrow because it was so good. Definitely have to try it when you're here.

Generous dishes. Arugula salad wonderful. Pasta dishes very flavorable and filling. Calamari and shrimp tomato appetizer savory.

This quaint little Italian bistro is tucked away above the Longboard in downtown Cruz Bay. The food and service were equally outstanding. In fact, we were so impressed after our family meal that my husband and I went back for a date night later in the trip. Upon the recommendation of the waiter, we ordered the signature baguette with mozzarella... More

Perfect little spot above the road. We heard the food was good, but this exceeded our expectations. Servers were fun and the menu was seriously legit. Huge portions and fresh ingredients. There are not a ton of great restaurants on the island, but this one was a real treat. Check out the reviews online! They are serious about their food.... More

I know sounds funny but this not the traditional pizza. It is actually crunchy thin dough with nutella in the middle. Try it...really good. Also there regular tomato pizza slices are superb!!
