I had the penne primavera, which had vegetables in a marinara sauce, and my granddaughter had pasta marinara with meat sauce. Both were large portions and very good. We carried out, since the tables are somewhat crowded together

More a 4 STAR then a 3. What a nice surprise. We almost canceled our reservation after speaking to a nice couple that were unhappy with the restaurant. I even understand there complaints as it is not at the level of a NYC table. Non the less it is enjoyable. PLUS if you talk to the 'homies', the regulars, and... More

We were looking for a mid-range option and regular family dinner after several nights of "fancier" meals. Unfortunately, Cafe Roma was just "okay." We had pasta and salad. The portions were good, but the food lacked flavor. Service was good.

In St. John for 7 days and ate twice at Cafe Roma! We just love the quaint atmosphere and great service. The Rajin Cajun Pasta is outstanding! Everyone in our party loved the food. You can always count on Cafe Roma to be consistent!

We had high hopes of a delicious Italian meal - The food was good but the actual restaraunt was dirty from top to bottom. I hate to give it a bad review but I would save my money and take it somewhere else.

This was our sixth trip back to STJ and we always look forward to Cafe Roma for an amazing Italian meal - we went there twice in the same week! I highly recommend the Three Cheese & Seafood Manicotti. We also like the garlic bread w artichoke hearts appetizer. Everything is delicious and the service is great!!

Cafe Roma is a nice, comfortable & quaint Italian restaurant located above The Longboard. With several Italian choices in Cruz Bay, I have found Cafe Roma to be the best alternative to the higher priced places and the food is just as good, if not better.

When traveling, rarely do we go to the same restaurant twice only because we love to try new restaurants. But during our recent trip to St John we found ourselves eating at Cafe Roma THREE times! The first night our group of 4 enjoyed different pasta dishes, all of which were great. The table next to us had pizza, which... More

Nothing fancy but very good Italian. Good location in town. Easy access via taxi. Salad and ravioli's were very good. Bottle of wine fit right in.
