Unfortunately, something I ate made me very sick that evening. Can’t say it was specifically this restaurant, but don’t think I would go back. The scallops maybe? The bolognese was very heavy in the basil, too.

Quality of food has gone way down. Very disappointing. I ordered the sea bass and risotto. The risotto was tasteless and the sea bass was only about a 2 x 3 inch piece for $49. Really a disappointing meal.

Very good food. There was a loud very obnoxious group nearby which made it hard to fully enjoy the experience. Only thing I would've liked is a slightly dimmer light

Over rated!
Food was not good. Especially for the price. Service was slow. Seating was a disaster for many people with reservations.
We didn’t even stay for desert, even though we were told it’s the best thing about this place.

Coming from the states you have higher expectations and I know this is an Italian restaurant on an island, so maybe you can cut them some slack. But for me and my wife it just was not good.

We went for Easter dinner as we were In St Thomas. Service was great Ashton was the manager that night and was on point carrying out my requests. Robin was our server and did a great job. Caprese, Margerita flat bread and scallops with squid ink risotto appetizer were all great.Tasty innovative spins on classics. The focaccia served for the table was delicious. I had the branzino special, veal parmigiana and mussels with creamy garlic sauce. All better than expected. Creme brûlée and chocolate lava cake average. The best cappuccino I’ve ever had. I’m from NY food Mecca. Umm that perfect steamed milk and espresso nice finish to a well executed meal .

Our server Ashton was terrific! She was knowledgeable about the menu and gave great recommendations! We had the bruschetta to start which was very fresh and flavorful. For entrees we had carribean lobster with buttered pasta and the special of the night, cheese tortellini with sun-dried tomatoes, pesto and artichokes ...both dishes were delicious! We finished the evening off with creme brûlée and a glass of Grand Marnier!

We had excellent service and a yummy bowl of pasta. I stopped short of a 5 star review because of the noise level of an adjacent table. Outrageously loud. Management should have said something to the group.

Our waiter Jimmy was so unwelcoming. From slamming our water cups down like we were inconveniencing him when we’d ask for more to blatantly ignoring simple requests like for the wine menu. We felt so uncomfortable being there that when our entrees hit the table we asked for boxes and our check and took our food Togo. Not to mention the Togo portion for something we ordered being over twice the size of the in house portion of the exact same entree. Will not be back. There’s so many better restaurants with better service around the area.

Food portions are big and we ended up taking away enough food for another meal for 5 people. I wish the waitstaff would have informed us of the large potions. Waitstaff seemed rushed and not attentive at all. One server was so incredibly loud, it sort of killed the entire experience for several groups that were trying to having a nice dining experience.

My fish came out ... half the size of my friends and I literally could not cut it with a knife .. my friend’s dish which was the same as mine cut with a fork .. they replaced it immediately and when it came back out it was excellent .. just a bad piece that can’t be helped .. I love this restaurant ... my fave in Red Hook!!!

Had the scampi. All I could taste was lemon. Couldn’t eat it. After mentioning to waiter he just kind of shrugged and took the mostly uneaten dish away. No “I’m sorry. Can I get you something different” or “let me talk to the chef.” Just nothing. Pesche had been a favorite of my wife and I for many years but over the last 6 months or so we have both been disappointed. Won’t be going back any time soon.
