price range

$$$ (Entrees $31 and up)

Beloved by both locals and visitors, this upscale Italian favorite wouldn’t feel out of place in a fashionable city like Milan or Paris. No, you won’t be sitting by the sea (the restaurant is tucked up a hill in Gustavia) but that’s a welcome trade-off for tasting some of the best dishes on the island. The head chef, who hails from Rome, is an expert at turning out homemade pastas, thick veal chops topped with sage, and Roman-style grilled artichokes so good you might weep with happiness. The handsome, smiling, mostly Italian waitstaff only adds to the charm.
