My sons and I visited St. John recently and had one of our meals at your restaurant. We are still talking about the clams, mussels and black pasta dish. It was off the chain delicious. We really enjoyed our dinner. Service was excellent as well.

We accidentally found this place and really glad we did. Great salad, pizza and wine. There were quite a few very good looking choices on the menu but we chose the pizza.

The best food ever. From the simplest to the more complex. Our family visits the island every year for several weeks and we visit this restaurant several times during our stay. We absolutely love the food.

The best Italian food I've ever ate! Took the family to St John and this place was recommended. Everybody had something different from the spaghetti & meatballs, chicken fettuccine, & parmigiana. A must eat when coming to St John!

My wife and I went to da Livio because the concierge, Eric at the the Westin, said it has the best Italian food in Cruz Bay and reading reviews on TA. First impression is that it is classier than most of the neighboring restaurants with a pizza oven outside. We eat relatively early and there was only one other table... More

I'm so sorry that you didn't find the portions to be quite sufficient. We put our emphasis on the flavors and the high-quality ingredients that we use over the portions available. That being said, we always want to impress our customers, so I apologize that we fell short. If you have any questions regarding a dish, our staff are always... More

Food was decent, but expensive! When you go to the restaurant with 5 or more people you must pay 20% tip. The staff did not deserve it. Many items we asked for from the me menu were not available.

I apologize that your meal with us wasn't everything you were looking for, Sal. We receive many ingredients directly from Italy in order to create the most authentic Italian food that we can here on the islands. Whether due to delays in delivery or due to high volume of customers coming through, we can sometimes run out of certain items... More

Food was decent, but it was way to expensife! When you go to the restaurant with 5 or more people you must pay 20% tip. We are from belgium and there we pay the same amount of money in a two stars restaurant for much better food!!

I'm sorry that our prices weren't quite what you were looking for, Maximilian. We use only the freshest ingredients and, in fact, ship many ingredients in from Italy. As for our service, we know that we must always earn your tip. That being said, for larger groups it's customary to set a higher tip, as is a common practice in... More

Excellent meal from being to end. Caprese Salad and Gnocchi appetizerso were outstanding. Had to order additional caprese as our kids devoured them in seconds. Tried the Chicken Parmigiana, Diavola, and Regina pizzas. All were outstanding. Every plate of every picky teenager wiped clean. Can't beat fresh ingredients whipped up in a brick oven pizza.
