yummy italian on the island!

Sometimes you just want a little comfort food. We loved the pizza, the meatballs, the italian sausage. Service was good, and prices were refreshing.

This was in my top 5 places to try on our recent visit to St. john. The menu is great, especially when you are ready for something besides seafood. But, the Veal in my Veal Masala was pretty tough and chewy. The sauce was tasty though. My husband had the Shrimp Diablo, but the tails were still on the shrimp.... More

This is a small italian restaurant that my family has loved for years. We come on every visit. My daugter has dairy allergies and they make her a pizza without cheese. Great good. You need to be patient as it is a small restaurant that makes everything from scratch so service is very good but you take your time.

I recently dined at Cafe Roma with visiting family. The food as always was awesome. My brothers teenage boys couldn't even finish their entrees. They were big, and after feeding these human garbage disposals for a week I was shocked. We took them in doggie bags and they were gone before they went to bed. These are picky kids and... More

Always eat here whenever we visit paradise. Great selection of italian menu items and the best pizza on the island. Great location right in Cruz Bay with a very nice atmosphere. Food is also very reasonably priced.

My family's favorite restaurant on all of St. Thomas and St. John! They serve incredible Italian food for very reasonable prices (family of 5 ate here last week for under $150 with drinks, multiple appetizers, and meals). Service was top notch.

If you don't visit Cafe Roma...you are making a HUGE mistake. This is the best, most delicious Italian food I have ever eaten...and trust me, I eat a lot :) My favorite dishes are the special salad, penne a la vodka, the scallops and shrimp dishes, and of course...LAMB CHOPS!! I am never disappointed when I come here. The service... More

I have been there a couple of times and had really good food but this last time I ordered the lamb chops over Fettuccini. All I can say is that my socks were blown off it was so good!
