Another one of our frequent places to eat while on island, We typically have the lobster ravoli and bologense as our meals and we have not been disappointed. A little out of the way spot and we have to try one of their pizzas, maybe next year!

We went to Da Livio on our last night in St. John. The service was very spotty and took about 20 minutes to be greeted by our server then another 20 minutes to get our drinks. It was not that busy, so we were not sure why it took so long. The pizza was great, it was grilled in a... More

I'm exaggerating a little but it WOULD be quicker. We stopped here on our last night in St. John. I felt bad for my meat-eating Italian husband who I had been dragging to every seafood restaurant I could find. He was so happy to find an Italian restaurant and, despite the small menu and the fact that the restaurant was... More

My real answer to your "review" is something I can't say here...I will say you are just cheap people looking for a cheap plate of slop because it is the only food you have had since you are born...as the microwavable macaroni and cheese you serve everyday as dinner, but I do not, I take a deep breath, stay calm...

First my son got a seafood pasta. The food was cooked very well when he tasted it he said it was heaven. My other son got a pizza and it was well made and everything there is from Italy. Our family had every last piece even though we were full. Very good service waiter always is smiling and very happy.... More

We stayed at the Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel on our recent visit to St. John. The location of this restaurant is perfect for an evening meal after a long day of snorkeling. We also enjoyed the air conditioned dining area! The spinach ravioli was wonderful and the two pizzas we ordered were delicious! We had great service and friendly employees.

We tried Da Livio's for the first time a couple of weeks ago. We were tempted by their menu of fresh pasta's and pizza, but hesitant due to inconsistent reviews (and let's be honest, we live in NJ, frequent NYC, and have been to Italy 5 times), so we do not usually seek out Italian restaurants in the Caribbean. Our... More

Our food was decent (maybe not top notch because we ate really late - 9pm or so) and server was cheerful but completely absent. We were her only table and she never stopped by once to check in. Had to go find her. Probably wouldn't go back since there are other better options.

This is authentic Italian food, with real Italian ingredients, served by a chef/owner with great pride in his product and cooking. The pizza is absolutely first-class. And, the prices are fair given the inflated costs on St. John, the high quality and source of the ingredients, and the mastery of the cooking. If you want Americanized food and boisterous happy...

Get the mussels. They are a must. The sauce and the bread they come with are finger licking good! We always ask for more bread to soak up all the sauce - it's that good. The pizzas are delicious. Brick oven crust and sauce is soo tasty. I had the bolognese and it was yummy. Appetizers and pizzas though are... More
