Reading the other reviews, I have to wonder if we are talking about the same restaurant. Although the food wasn't terrible, this was by far one of the worst Italian restaurants we have been too. They charge for Parmesan on the table and bread ($3...More

Buongiorno, thanks for your contribution, could help better travelers if you saying the truth: all the charges are clearly printed in ENGLISH and in red ink on the menu; the prices of the wines are also clearly showed in U.S. Dollars. I see you do...More

Excellent pizza, pasta, service. Hard to find decent Italian food on islands, except Manhattan of course :). Very impressed. Prices are crazy for Italian food but most prices are crazy in St. John anyway. Would still go back and pay as the others St John...More

This place was great and worth stopping!! We have tried several restaurants in the Cruz Bay Area to get an idea of what to expect on the island. We ordered more family style and shared tuna carpaccio, pizza, and the pasta nightly special and we're...More
