Written by Coconut Post

In Italian, the word “pesce” means “fish.” However it sounds when spoken, that lilting language fails to translate all the exquisite taste sensations awaiting you at Pesce Fine Dining Italian Restaurant.

“Fresh seafood, homemade pasta, local ingredients” is the promotional phrase Pesce chooses to showcase on its website’s home page. That, too, is only part of the overall Pesce picture.

Essentially, the intriguing enterprise invites patrons to step beyond the East End of St. Thomas and into the Italian countryside. How fascinating!

At Pesce, rustic meets sophisticated while embracing fresh ingredients, local seafood and more. Happily, the friendly, dedicated staff is highly knowledgeable when it comes to the relationship between food and wine – served with warmth and hospitality.

The menu at Pesce reflects an array of Italian culinary choices. In addition to classic Bruschetta, another antipasti favorite is Pesce’s Crispy Manacotti featuring a breaded pasta sheet stuffed with herbed ricotta, garlic, parmesan and house marinara. Entries range from iconic Spaghetti and Meatballs to Veal Milanese, Shrimp Scampi and Salmon alla Toscana.

Dinner is served seven nights a week from 5 to 10 p.m.  Happy hour takes places from every day 5 to 7 p.m. featuring special prices on house red and white wine and domestic beer as well as Stoli and Bacardi cocktails.

Pesce, a proud member of the St. Thomas Restaurant Group,  is located in Red Hook at American Yacht Harbor.
