Description: Da Livio is nestled in the heart of Cruz Bay. Offering an exclusive and authentic taste of Italy, we bring you a unique dining experience to the island that's not offered by any other restaurant around. Aside from bringing you a crafted menu, we are also a private distributor of wine and specialty imported goods. Each of our dishes are packed with outstandingly fresh ingredients that are all imported to ensure that we serve our original recipes the way they are indented. Choose from our handmade pastas and sauces to our brick oven pizza- everything is made from scratch, each time. From the Caputo flour, imported from Napoli and used in our dough- to the Faema E61 that is the only one on in the entire islands, come taste the difference and quality with us at Da Livio!

It's a little better than average Italian food, but definitely more expensive than it should be for the small portions they serve, even considering the fact that most restaurants in Cruz Bay are typically more expensive than you'll find in the states. This one seemed to be more so than others. Service was really good, but I wasn't impressed with the value to food quality and price.

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 restaurants that offer Italian themed menus don't even come close as far as execution. Enjoy!

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 very pleased with the meal when compared to other places on the island. Excellent service!!! When I want Italian food, I think of Da Livio. If you want Olive Garden with free bread and cheap glasses of wine, wait til you get back to the states!! BTW, do not pass up dessert! The tiramisu was fantastic and is made fresh daily!!

Have had pizza there twice this week. It is SO good. Cooked on a grill of the terrace as you enter the restaurant after the crust is hand spun. Thin crust, fresh ingredients and deep flavor. Just as in Italy.....truly. We went back to try an entree but couldn't pass up on a repeat pizza.
