It’s not tough to make Risotto, wrote the St. John Sun Times restaurant reviewer, "but making it sublime is difficult." The island’s new Italian restaurant, DaLivio, does it, according to Eloise Anderson.
This was the newspaper’s second visit to the eatery which is located, roughly, across the street from the Lime Inn and next to Fred’s. The first, soon after Livio Leoni opened for business was good, but then the summer came and the place closed for vacation. Leoni and his Italian-speaking chef, Marco Bandini, are back – and in great form, the Sun Times said.
Best bets: an orange salad with olives, anything Risotto, and pasta with bottarga (pasta, caviar, and olive oil). Entrees average $25. Best seats in the house are on the front porch (see and be seen) and … you must visit the bathroom, Anderson said: "Most stylist and beautiful on St. John."
