My wife and I saw all of the great reviews of Invita Bistro on TripAdvisor so we decided to make the trip. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The first thing that stood out to us was the service. The wait staff was extremely attentive to our needs from the moment we walked in. They were very warm and... More

We went here based on the TripAdvisor reviews and it was definitely enjoyable. The location was fairly easy to find, close parking, and great service. Unfortunately, I wasn't blown away by the food, it was pretty mainstream, and borderline bland. I hate to comment that because we really did have an enjoyable evening, but I'm thinking we may have just... More

Overall, what a great experience!! Food was fantastic!! We started with Gazpacho soup. You can't go wrong with this and it was perfect. Secondly, we shared the Mediterranean salad. It was equally as good. Personally, I did not enjoy the salad dressing as much, but my fiancee did -- so I think it's just preference. For the main course ---... More

Also the salads can come with dressing on the side although most don't choose that option. Come back soon and you will notice a new wine cava that will help is keep up to 100... More

Thanks for breaking away from the marina and celebrating such a special event with us. Thanks for findings us as unique and special. Our chef and staff really want to give you a "stand out" dinner that you will always treasure. Lots of guests are now reserving in advance to ensure they get a table when they arrive. Other guests...

Great comments. We are not the typical Cabo restaurant. We offer original Southern Italian and Mediterranean recipes from founding Chef Antonello Lauri and his family. try the fresh seafood, daily made pastas or the salads. Wines, specialty Italian inspired cocktails and after dinner drinks make Invita a place to enjoy for a quick glass to a whole evening out. Ciao... More

Fantastico! Thanks for your comments and yes this is real Italian cooking. Southern Italian original recipes from Chef Antonello and his family. But we don't just serve Italian we also have tapas, Greek salads and what is rapidly becoming one of the best selections of wines in Cabo. Come see for yourself. Ciao! More

Visited based on a referral from our hotel InVita was an outstanding restaurant with fresh food and a very accommodating/friendly staff. Our waiter, Luis, was very pleasant and answer our menu questions expertly. We stated with a "small" salad which was more than enough for two. For our main dish, we both chose the Frutti di mare which was full... More
