Amazing pizza!

This place is like a hidden gem. The pizza is what I would consider comparable to what you'd find in Italy, right here in St. John. I highly recommend and will hopefully be back. Try it!

We discovered this great restaurant last year. It was just as good, or better, this time around. Gnocchi was amazing. Caprese salad wonderful. Terrific pizza. Truly, every dish that we ate was great. Friendly attentive service. They really appreciated our business. We will definitely return

What a pleasant surprise this place was. We had eaten at another Italian restaurant early in the week and were actually considering heading there again. My daughter mentioned that she had ran past a small place called DaLivio and it looked "cool" so we decided to give it a try. The setting is really nice and it is one of... More

This is our family favorite in St. John! The pizzas are amazing. They are just like we've had in Italy, and cooked so very fast. The same guy was there making pizzas as two years ago when we were visiting! Margherita pizza is a must. We love the pastas too - truly everything is delicious and so enjoyable. Kids were... More

If I could give this restaurant 10 stars I would. This restaurant is so divine and exquisite. Great for families and couples too. Warm and friendly atmosphere and great service. I have a house on St. John and every time I come here I eat there more than once. Massimo makes some of the best pizza I've ever had and... More

I know that while vacationing in the Caribbean, Italian cuisine may not come to mind, but I have to tell you that this place has the best Italian food I ever had...And I have had good Italian! This family moved to St John from Italy and they know exactly what they are doing. Lobster ravioli was excellent along with caprese... More

Delicious completely authentic Italian food. The space is pleasant, with a little porch and cheerful indoor seating, but the food and the chance to meet the owners are the highlights here. If you only know Italian food from American-Italian overloaded pizza and red sauce on soggy pasta, get ready for some light, bright, fresh dishes, a taste of Italy today.

Sat out front by the pizza oven and had a great time chatting with Massimo, the pizza chef. We went on a Wednesday all you can eat pizza night. This is the most authentic pizza on island-the crust is chewy and delicious. All of the pizzas are made with high quality ingredients.

This little restaurant was recommend to us by a local. It was our least favorite of the places we tried. We are from the south and this is not like any Italian food we had ever eaten. We should have left when we tasted the croutons on our overpriced salad. Stale and tasted like rubber. The pasta was undercooked and... More

The location is convenient in Cruz Bay near Lime Inn. The atmosphere is very casual with somewhat small tables. The service was adequate. The Lobster Ravioli was very good and fresh with a wonderful pistachio pesto sauce. The pasta was perfectly al dente. The pizza was very good. The bolognese meat sauce was very good bad was the tagliatine pasta... More
