Brandywine Estate Restaurant

Tortola | (284) 495-2301

Located near Parham Town, Brandywine Estate Restaurant is a logical choice for people thinking about exploring this part of the island. In case you're wondering, Road Town is approximately two and a half miles (approximately three and a half kilometers) to the west. Fresh seafood and Italian panache make a nice pair at this exceptional formal dining option.

Dining is alfreso, with tables set up on a cobblestone terrace surrounded by a fragrant garden.

Giorgio's Table

Virgin Gorda | (284) 495-5684

Giorgio's Table is a good choice worth considering if you're thinking about exploring the island. It is northeast of Spanish Town. When you're hoping to find a delectable Italian dish without a big to-do, this mellow restaurant is a great fit.

Giorgio's takes dinner favorites like pasta, beef, and fish and turns it into masterful creations such as homemade ravioli, beef filet, and pan seared salmon. Lobsters, which will later become the main course, are displayed in the 5,000 gallon seawater pool. Additionally, over 1200 wines are kept on site in the temperature controlled cellar.


Road Town, Tortola | (284) 494-2333

Charlie’s, on the premises of Mooring-Mariner Inn, is located just beyond the the center of Road Town. Pleasantly surprising, this dining destination is not just Italian delights and particularly desserts, but wouldn't you know they're also fawned-over for another favorite, pasta.

Surrounded by the beauty of the British Virgin Islands, Charlie's overlooks the cruise ship pier, the hills, and the marina, allowing for a view of glistening waters that adds to the restaurant's luxurious and sophisticated ambiance.

Capriccio di Mare

Downtown Road Town, Tortola | (284) 494-5369

Situated in downtown Road Town, Capriccio di Mare is a good choice for guests thinking about going to this neighborhood or nearby. Pleasantly surprising, this dining destination is not just Italian goodies, which yes, includes pasta, but we shouldn't forget they're also dubbed a hotspot for pizza.

The environment at Capriccio di Mare is a relaxed one, especially out on the shaded terrace, which offers a view of the dock. The interior offers an authentically Italian ambiance, with worn furnishings that lend themselves to the laid back atmosphere.
