Top-of-the-line Italian food prepared fresh from fresh imported ingredients daily. Try the lobster ravioli to experience heaven on your palate.

Loved! I am a foodie and Italian food snob...I am always seeking the best Italian restaurants when traveling abroad. We found this place in the middle of our stay on St. John. Dined 2 more times! The pizza was amazing! The pasta was just like my Nana made. The owner is straight from Italy and you can tell by the... More

We went during off season to St. John's so many restaurants were not open. We came across this little place through research and walking past it and I have to admit I am glad we tried it. Coming from a state where we are known for our pizza and delicious Italian food , I have to say this place was... More

We are grateful to have been referred to this restaurant. Although you may not think that you want Italian food on a Caribbean island this is not a place to be missed. Our waiter, Gregg provided fantastic service. The lobster ravioli was the best we have ever had (seriously). There was amazing rosemary focaccia. Endless gnocchi with multiple sauce choices... More

We were a party of 4, walk in off the street. ( September is off season) . We all had pizza and it was just as good as pizza in Italy! Not cheep, good food is expensive. The oven is small, so it can take a few minutes to cook larger orders. Our sever was outstanding. Lots of the staff... More

Lacking servers, took forever to get a drink and then a refill. Very small restaurant with tables on top of each other with little to no air. I realize this is the Caribbean, but three sides are walls so there is no breeze. The pizza was ok, but nothing to write home about.

We have eaten at DaLivio each stay when we come down in July.This year was terribly disappointing! The lights were out over our tippy table and when we commented on the light the absent minded server brought us another candle when there were clearly lights available. My husband and I were shocked that when we asked to share the eggplant... More

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!
