this place is quite a find in the middle of the st. john's cruz bay. the owner livio is passionate about bringing real Italian food to st. john. the menu is not typical Italian food as americans would think of it but it is authentic in its own right. décor is simple and down to earth, service is friendly, and...

Had insalata di rucola and 2 pizzas for dinner & it was like being in Italy. Great food & great service from very friendly staff, including chef Massimo who is from Florence Italy. We've been vacationing on St John for over a decade & we had been hearing about the pizza now for a couple of years & decided to... More

We went in March at the tail end of our week vacation. They sat my wife, my 17 month old son and me within minutes and we quickly ordered a pizza to get some food for the little man. The pizza came out right away and it was quite good (thin crust, fresh mozzarella and basil). We also ordered the... More

A great italian option to mix up your cuisines in St. John. They had great lobster ravioli and pizza. The only setback was we had a new waiter that hadn't been trained. It all worked out but it wasn't as professional as it could be.

I went to Da Livio on the recommendation of a friend. I had tagliatelle with bolognese. It was very tasty, but I will say for the size of the portion and what I chose, it was pretty pricey.

My wife wanted Italian. Okay. We stepped in to a little slice of Italy with Italian spoken and served. The food was exceptional and the pizza was beyond anything you would expect on and Island.

Pizza was great, service was friendly salads were very ordinary and overpriced. Tiramisu was very good. It is hard to find pizza in this end of town.

This restaurant should be rated near the top of the St. John TripAdvisor restaurant reviews. The tagliatelle with bolognese sauce is the best I have ever had, including in Italy. The arugula salad had just the right dressing. Service was very attentive. We would definitely go back.

This place is fantastic but you would not guess it from the outside. Be prepare to spend $$ , but you will not be unhappy. We had mussel appetizer, hand made foccacia bread, hand made ravioli plus bolognese and a bottle of wine. Wow this was outstanding and i doubt you could find better service anywhere in the world.
