I was travelling with a friend who suggested we go in an antipasto. A bit pricey (or so I thought) it's available for 2 or 4 people. A stunning creation was hand delivered by Marilynn from the kitchen, she was most proud of her work and had every reason to be. The plan was to have the salad and see... More

We have been to Care Roma twice now. The first time was n March 2017. the server was wonderful and prompt. He was very helpful with recommendations and the meal superb! The power went out while we were there but it didn't affect our great time. It came back on before it got too hot. We went again in April... More

I saw this place on Facebook and trusted the source to visit it. The food was good. BUT The server spoke in a very offensive manner about his alternative lifestyle using curse words to describe his relationship and then proceeded to talk about driving while buzzed on marijuana. I don't appreciate him sharing these viewpoints with me and was especially... More

We recently had dinner at Cafe Roma and was pleasantly surprised, We had tried it years ago but they are under new owners and decided to give it a try. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. The meals were hot and very good. I will plan on having dinner at Cafe Roma when we visit St. John next year.... More

Terrible, a complete waste. Food had absolutely NO FLAVOR. Pasta was broken into little pieces, no salt added ,boiled forever , topped with a thin slice of eggplant (at least that's what is was supposed to be) and something resembling sauce added to the top. I'm not sure if it was tomato sauce, as it had NO flavor only the... More

After visiting St. John we stopped for dinner at this quaint Italian restaurant. The service was excellent and our server very friendly. The caesar dressing, homemade, was outstanding, as well as the entrees. We enjoyed every bite, especially the tiramisu for dessert!

My wife and I ate here toward the end of our vacation. The tomato, mozzarella loaf was an excellent appetizer. The seafood manicotti was a unique twist and was fresh and flavorful. My wife had the penne florentine which she said was very good. The portions were large and the manager and our waitress were very friendly even helping us... More

Our first day on the island on a busy easter weekend day and we found restaurants were quickly filling up. We noticed our first pick eatery was a 40 minute way and scampered upstairs to try out Cafe Roma. It was an excellent choice. My wife and I had delicious salads, my daughter enjoyed her pizza and we took a... More
