Update: Ronnie’s Pizza reopened in its new location on December 1st.
For those of you who’ve been on island the past few months, you may be wondering what happened to Ronnie’s Pizza. Well I’m happy to tell you that he didn’t hang up his rolling pin for good. He simply moved his popular pizza shop down the street. 🙂
Did you know that Ronnie Klingsberg has made more than one million pizzas on St. John over the past 32 years? That’s a lot of pepperoni! In fact, he and his buddy Joe Morris, owner of Dr. Cool, calculated that Ronnie has served so many pepperoni pizzas over the years, that the amount of pepperoni used could actually make a complete ring around the world. Now that’s impressive!
Ronnie served up his last pie at the Boulon Center in Cruz Bay back in July and has been preparing to reopen in a new location ever since. Ronnie’s Pizza an mo’ is now located in Palm Plaza, which is across the street from the Racetrack gas station, and next door to the Westin Resort.
I stopped by to check out his new digs recently, and I have to say, the place looks great. His new spot is located in the former VI Body Spa space, which is the last storefront on Palm Plaza’s lower level. Ronnie’s new location has indoor seating for 12, and he hopes to have some outdoor seating down the road. The new location boasts a decent amount of parking too, making it easier for all of us to grab a pie. Staying over at the Westin Resort? You’re all super lucky, because you can literally walk next door to pick up a to-go order.
Looking for delivery? That’s continuing too! For a flat fee of $10, Ronnie will deliver from Cruz Bay to Fish Bay, and everywhere in between, including the Westin Resort. He said he’d delivery beyond that too “if it’s a big enough order.” Can’t blame him for that! Oh, and his delicious brownies are coming back too.
“We’ll have brownies and cookies and other surprise desserts,” Ronnie told me. “We’re working on some cool sh!t.”
The VI government just gave Ronnie the final sign-off on his new space last Friday, and he plans to officially open after Thanksgiving. We will let you know the exact date when that happens. And when it does, Ronnie will be open Monday through Saturday from 3 p.m. to 8:30-ish.
