Ciao, we are considering a move to STX from Italy! We LOVE Salsa and wondering if there is a scene there in STX? Also, my husband in a Sicilian Chef. How's the pizza there; is it over "Americanized"? His considering opening a pizzeria vs a personal chef business. Thanks!

Mrsyogadoc: The USVI is a difficult and expensive place to do business, and that's certainly true for restaurants. STXUSVI said, "There are 3 available pizza shops in Christiansted alone. Sounds like an opportunity!" That means 3 pizza shops that closed down, probably because of the bad business environment. There are many other restaurants that have closed, or are for sale. There are also many successful restaurants. You should contact some restaurateurs here to find out more info.

Mrsyogadoc.....you've got alot to learn.....You really better read the heck out of prior posts and search features.Then arrange for a PMV for at least 2 weeks ,just to research the business angle for yourself.These islands will suck you dry unless you have full knowledge of what your getting into. Good luck!8-)

Thanks for all the advice. That's why I'm posting here. We do have a PMV scheduled in August. I've lived the island life (on a bigger one in Sicily) and LOVED IT! But I'd like to see how we might fair out in STX. We are researching our options. Thanks again!
