I have been all over the world having been born in Finland and spending my summers in Europe as a child/teenager. Yes, indeed, I have been to Italy and dined in the "real Italian" eateries. I highly recommend Da Livio - my husband and I adored the food. Simply divine! We ordered a pizza as a starter - it was... More

Our concierge stated that reservations were needed but we entered a nearly empty restaurant. The wine list was limited but pricey. We ordered a chianti by the glass which arrived flat and leaving us sorry we had not sprung for a bottle. I should have known better than to order fish in a slow restaurant, but the menu said fresh... More

We typically eat dinner at Da Livio when were on St. John, but this time we decided to try their pizza. We each ordered one, forget which ones, they do have a few on the menu. We like a thin crust, the sauce was typically Italian and the toppings were great too! We enjoyed them very much and our next... More

Da Livio is a fantastic choice for Italian fare in Cruz Bay! Livio, the gracious owner and head chef, and his entertaining pizza chef, Massimo, create delightful authentic meals and wood fired pizzas (perhaps the only wood fired oven in the Virgin Islands)! On our most recent visit, my wife and I had some very nice wine with savory paella,... More

Love the Bolognese sauce, and crave it when we leave... My wife had the pizza which was wood fired. (Last time I think they were gas fired). It was excellent. They seem to be very particular about their ingredients which is probably hard on an island...

Needed something less than a full dinner. Got a takeout pizza (mozzarella, tomato, basil). It was cooked in a wood fired pizza oven and was quite good. Staff was very friendly. I would like to go back and try some of their other food.

Based on a recommendation from a friend in St. John we recently dined at Da Livio. The menu, wine list, atmosphere and service were impeccable. The recommendations and guidance from Chef Livio and the Wait Staff were outstanding. The appetizers, entrees and desert were creative and most of all delicious! Our waiter assisted with the wine selection from the exceptional... More

My husband and I were exhausted from the sun and the day, and I ordered a few pizzas from there for take-out as we had rented a car during our stay. The pizzas did not disappoint. And considering the cost of all food on the island, if you're looking for a cheaper alternative for the night that will make everyone... More
