The food, atmoshere and huge drink selection makes Cafe Roma the best place on St John or St Thomas! I had the veal marsala and also ordered a pizza to bring back for the next day! The wine list is very impressive. The walls are painted with a beautiful mural. The owner is very nice.

Small restaurant with excellent Italian food. They also offer fish dishes. The sauce is a full body delious sauce! The raviolis were very good. The waiter, Patrick was really nice and helpful.

Don't miss going to this restaurant, it has the best Italian food on the island. We were told its 1 of the oldest restaurants on the island. It's upsairs next to Longboards. Probably our best meal of our trip to ST. John. Our waitress was Jessie, very friendly & gave us lots of information.
