“Very good wood oven pizza; good value and service.”
Reviewed June 4, 2010

Key Largo didn't have fancy atmosphere but the pizza was very good. For the first half of our trip this was the best restaurant we ate at, even though we had tried some much more expensive touristy places. The service was down to earth and the prices were very good value. We would definitely go to Key Largo again on another trip to St. Lucia, and would recommend it to anyone.

“Very good and reasonable”
Reviewed April 5, 2010

We had a family of 5 with a couple adult beverages, salad and pizza for under $50 USD. A refreshing change after paying $150US for bad Mexican food at Tequila Joe's last night. Our Pizza was fast and good, the service was excellent.

“Not that great - very dissappointed!”
Reviewed March 18, 2010

This restaurant was hard to find compared to the other restaurants in the area. We had read the reviews before our vacation and wanted to go there only to find that it wasn't any better than the average pizza place.

Sorry you didn't have a great experience with us. If you're ever back in St. Lucia, I hope you'll give us another try. There have been a lot of changes here since the time of your review, including a new menu.

“yummy pizza”
Reviewed March 2, 2010

My wife and i were tired of steaks and fish so,thanks to a tip of the local manager of the hotel ,we went to Key Largo.The service was okay,the girls were friendly and the place is spacious and clean.We saw a lot of groups that night.The waitress suggested we try some salads first and then buy a pizza to share between the 2 of us.The salads arrived .The lettuce was fresh and cold and we enjoyed it,but we were not prepared for the pizza.Apparently this guy,the italian owner,has a wood fired oven from Italy and prepares his dough fresh every day and he even goes and cut his own firewood!
The pizza was surprisingly thin and crispy we are not used to that,it was so yummY and the pepperoni-imported- was cooked to perfection.Carlo the owner explained to me the oven gives an extra kick to the pizza and it is ,by far,hotter than any other oven.
That was our last night on the island we wish we could have found out about this place sooner!

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed February 4, 2010

We ordered 2 pizzas - The Key Largo and The Tropical. The Tropical was the better of the 2 and the least expensive @ $31.00. Crust was thin and crisp, sauce almost non-existant, watery and rather tasteless, and the toppings sparse. The Key Largo had 9 shrimp and 5 pieces of artichoke - that cost $45.00. Both the crust and the sauce had been prepared with no salt. I am at a loss to understand how previous reviews can rave about this pizza. (To add to our dissatisfaction, there was a fitness class going on upstairs and music was blasting , bass pounding, which rather ruined any ambience there might have been.)

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear you had such a poor experience. Since the time of your review, the gym upstairs has been closed, so there are no longer fitness classes during our service. We also now have a new chef who has actually just launched a new menu. If you're ever back in St. Lucia, we'd love to see you here so you can have a better experience. Thank you again.
