We visited Pesce on our second night in St. Thomas. It is located in Red Hook, only a $5 cab ride from the Ritz, so it was very convenient to get to. We arrived and sat in the back room which was more quiet than the bar area. The sauteed calamari appetizer had the most scrumptious sauce and was light and fresh. One of the misconceptions of this restaurant is that it only has linguini and typical Italian fare, e.g., lasagna etc. We actually picked this restaurant on the recommendation of the concierge at the Ritz and after seeing the pictures of the food in the concierge menu book. Since we were in St. Thomas, we wanted to try fish entrees. Two of us had seared tuna for our entrees. One had a pomegrante sauce and the other entree was the standard on the menu with the spicy sauce. Both dishes were outstanding and just what we had hoped for. If you like sushi, you will really like this dish. Also, the portions were hearty and large, the size you'd expect from an Italian restaurant, even for the non-Italian style dishes. Some of the other restaurants we went to served pea-sized portions. The waitress was very friendly and although not as formal as some of the other restaurants, she provided excellent service throughout the evening. The tiramisu dessert made the night. It was probably the best I have ever had. Three of us shared one and we were full by the end of the meal. Know that the menu is quite varied and is 5 times or so larger than most of the other restaurants we visited. This ensured there was something delectable for everyone in our party. We were going to go back for the second time in a week and regretted not doing so when we went elsewhere. Highly recommended.
