Zozo's Ristorante, St. John

St. John USVI Restaurants

Enjoy a truly fine dining experience at Zozo's Ristorante, featuring contemporary Italian cuisine that Island travelers from all over are raving about. Find the restaurant at the Gallows Point Resort and enjoy seating inside, outside on the open air terrace or at the wonderful bar that overlooks the water and the beautiful Caribbean sunsets. Sip on a cocktail before dinner and take in some of the most amazing beach views and sunsets that can be found on the island of St. John. Be sure to make reservations in advance, and sit down to enjoy a sumptuous assortment of fine Italian food and wine.

The Restaurant

The exceptional views of the sunset at the end of the day are the reason that cultured locals - as well savvy island vacationers - stream into the beautiful Zozo's Ristorante. It's one of the hippest places on St. John. Come be part of the elite and enjoy some of the best Italian seafood dining in the Caribbean.

The Drinks

Enjoy a selection of fine cocktails while you sit at the bar and watch Cruz Bay blaze with the redness of sunset. Sit down to a superb list of wines from around the world - including Italy - and muse on how wonderful fine dining on an Island can be.

The Menu

As with everything on the Island, seafood is the specialty - but did you think you would be enjoying this ubiquitous menu item on a gourmet plate of pasta? Here at Zozo's Ristorante, the dream comes true and the reality is much better than you could have ever imagined.

For starters, enjoy the bruschetta prepared with scallops. The secret to this appetizer delight is the extremely tasty combination of goat's cheese, portobella mushrooms and, of course, the bruschetta made from scallops - all layered on top of a piece of delicious Italian bread.

And the dream continues… that's because the Lobster ravioli - to die for, really - is slathered is a creamy tomato sauce replete with roasted pine nuts, making your taste buds come alive. The basil linguini is also a must-have featuring the seafood prizes of swordfish with an exquisitely done inner layer of sumptuous crab meat. My personal favorite is the jumbo shrimp glazed a crabmeat and artichoke tapanade. Another special delight served here is the black mussel plate with ingredients including garlic, white wine and delicious tomatoes. In addition, take part in the crab cakes served in a peppery aioli and pine nuts roasted to their savory perfection. Other great seafood items include the shrimp doused in garlic and roasted in an excitingly delectable orange basil sauce. This plated comes seared as well, just as does the red snapper - another personal favorite - that is slathered in cake made from risotto with fresh asparagus.

For those more excited about a delicious beef meal, take heart in the exquisitely prepared shank of veal cooked in tomato and veal broth with red wine, making this dish an excellent choice for the seasoned traveler. Alternatively, you could try the gorgonzola cheese fillet mignon prepared in the gratin style and sided with sweet delicious onions.
