Yum!

I had the arugula and prosciutto pizza, and added extra mozzarella. This pizza was delicious! Too bad i only discovered this place on my last day in PV. The outdoor seating is perfect for people watching and just hanging out in the sun.

The hubs and I have returned to this little pizzeria a few times now since arriving to our 'winter home' of Puerto Vallarta, and I expect we will be back again and again. Seems to be mostly different staff than last year- although we have been visiting in the evenings rather than the earlier lunches we had at Pinocchio's in... More

Restaurant has normal Mexican/Italian food on the menu. The best deal for your pesos is the grilled fish platter lunch. At 110 pesos you get a nice portion of salmon, mahi mahi, shrimp, calamary and a side of home made veggies. The behind the scene secret is tht the owner, Flora, can cook on demand a great stewed rabbit, leg... More

Great pizza and great, fast service. We had the pepperoni pizza and it was definitely the best pizza ever for us. Thin crust, piping hot, no pepperoni slices but rather thinly cut pieces. And the seasoning was perfect. Quick, pleasant service as well. Definitely recommend this place.

We ordered 3 pizzas and none had any tomato sauce and all of the toppings seemed less than fresh. They were barely edible. I would not recommend this place.

We have enjoyed this pizzeria for many years. Regrettably now they added a "suggested tip" amount. It's not suggested. They charge it. And it is not the conventional 10 per cent left at Mexican restaurants. When you tell them the waiters act smug. Sad that the experience of good food is tarnished by this. I'm always an overtipper - and... More

I was in Puerto Vallarta and ate here quite a few times. It was nice to have a change from Mexican food. The service was really great , the servers and Pizza chef were always kind! They also sell pizza by the slice which is nice. The only thing that I found annoying is that they were inconsistent with their... More

We went to pinocchios today and the pizza was great. Cheap beer!! Fast service. Other things on the menu besides pizza. Only one complaint when u get the tab do the math as they have already included a 15% tip!!! I find this kind of practice shady and will most likely not go back because I don't feel I should...

We found this as we were strolling past. I suggest going in the evening. Javier cooks then and he puts a special flair into his cooking. Not sure what he does different than the ladies that cook during the day, but it is certainly good. He is a great guy and very friendly. We have gone back several times since... More
