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.

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!!

We ordered pizzas for carry-out. We really didn't enjoy them much at all, but I guess in fairness, I shouldn't have expected their pizza to stand up to the Chicago pizzas we are used to.

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!

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
