Quick lunch stop.

We stopped here for a quick bite of Italian food for lunch while we rested from walking the Malecon. I know it is Mexico, but after 2 weeks, we wanted pizza. Good pizza with a free order of bruschetta. Can't go wrong.

A great lunch, the flat bread style pizzas are fantastic and the drinks are cold. Right by the beach made for a great back drop. Prices are good its a great stop while walking the Malecon. The only down point would be the merchants that kept approaching us but that is Mexico in a nut shell.

We stopped by Pinnocchio's one night, as our previous plans at another restaurant on the malecon did not go well. The service was fast and friendly. We ordered two pizza's, 1) margharita 2) procchiutto and spinach. Both were hot out of the oven, and beers cold out of the fridge in frosted glasses! Best combination you can ask for! We... More

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.
