Excellent place.

Great food. Great service. If you are in San Jose del cabo and feel like Italian food, this is definitely the place to go. Waiters are very friendly and the owner, Pablo, is often there interacting with the customers. Everything about this place is wonderful.

Meh. The sauces seemed very oniony. The pizza was bland. The service was great, but expected more tasty food. Great atmosphere - especially at night.

Visited this restaurant once last season. It's a nice place. It is a more 'high-end' restaurant than I ordinarily visit. Good location for folks in the All Inclusives or time shares along Malacon.
