One of the best restaurant experience we have had. The entire staff, starting with the hostess and ending with the waitress, was amazing. Large portions of food that tested great! A must visit if you are in St Thomas. We'll be coming back to Pesce on our next trip to St Thomas!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Pesce. We decided to save our trip to Pesce for our last night on the island and it was well worth the wait! The staff was attentive and knowledgeable, ready to make wonderful recommendations! The service was great and the food was the perfect send off for our vacation! Our next trip to the island will most certainly include a trip to Pesce!

Amazing food and excellent service! The pasta bolognese was phenomenal. We are actually considering going back just to get some as takeout for lunch later this week! Flatbread and beet salad also excellent, and great dessert options. We had the flan and it was delicious. Our bartender/server was great, really friendly and offered advice on food and drink selection. This is a must check out restaurant for everyone!

This restaurant was the perfect choice for my birthday dinner. My husband & I enjoyed a delicious meal and excellent service. The meal was pricier than some of the other restaurants, but worth the cost. The ambiance was great for the occasion. Would definitely return!

This is one of the absolute best Italian restaurants I’ve ever eaten in. The food was amazing. Well prepared with great flavor. The service was awesome. Great wine and cocktail list. It’s a “must eat” restaurant when visiting St. Thomas.

Both my order and my wife’s order were fantastic and easily enough for two meals. The caesar salad was very good. We like to think we know a bit about Italian cooking as we are from St. Louis and regularly eat on the “Hill” which is a historically Italian neighborhood known for authentic Italian cooking and the food at this restaurant was on par if not better than what we could get in St. Louis.

Great Food! Great atmosphere, but the service was very poor. Kudos to the hostess and busser they went out of their way to help after seeing the poor service from the server. Overall Great restaurant but they should definitely look into their servers.

The dinners were delicious. I had truffled pappardelle with shrimp and it was delightful. Service was good. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but that’s the case for most restaurants on St. Thomas. It was an enjoyable evening.

The food was delicious, but the service is beyond poor and some of the waitstaff just plain rude. It is a shame because the food is great. Unfortunately this has happened again and again - every time (5) I have visited this restaurant over the last 3 to 4 years.

Had a few issues with service. But we straightened it out. Server wasn’t really paying attention. We tried three dishes. My husbands Parm was maybe a 6 on a 1-10 scale. However, the mushroom Pappardelle was definitely excellent. We decided to try dessert. Creme Brûlée although the Crusted sugar top was done excellently the Brûlée was watery. It was our Anniversary and I told the restaurant on “remarks” on reservation but no mention.
I guess that part doesn’t work. The pasta was good but. It the homemade pasta we are used to in NJ.

The only reason I gave less than 5 for service is because our server didn’t have his mask on properly. Everyone else in the restaurant (customers and employees) respected the mask mandate on the island but our server had his mask extremely loose where it didn’t cover his nose at all and was very ill fit on his mouth. To the point where when he was explaining things to us we were uncomfortable with him standing and us being seated.
Everything else was fantastic. I would go there again. The food was outstanding.

I decided to come here based on reviews from a travel group via Facebook. The menu was not overwhelming which is something I love! They provided warm bread and dip that my son absolutely loved! We also had bruschetta that was very good! My 11 year old really enjoyed the Chicken Alfredo, and lava cake for dessert. I had fish stew that was on special. It was pretty good! Our server was attentive and wasn’t too over the top. I also appreciate when I’m able to enjoy my meal without having to be interrupted too much. I would recommend coming here again. It was nice!

Welcoming atmosphere. Fun cocktails, good wine list, appetizers and salads were excellent. The roasted beet salad was wonderful. The fish entrees were very much enjoyed, especially the salmon. I wanted the snapper picata, but they were out. The Italian entrees were lacking. Veal was heavily breaded and overcooked. Asked for Cappellini instead of spaghetti, got spaghetti, also overcooked. Chose not to stay for dessert.

We had an issue with our reservation at another restaurant so walked-in hoping for a table. The restaurant was booked but they were very gracious in trying to help. Within 30 minutes they were able to accommodate us and we had a fabulous dinner with excellent service. Highly recommend for authentic Italian cuisine.
