“Italian restaurant in Bahias de Huatulco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I think that Giordanas is the best place to eat in Bahias de Huatulco. I have been to the best restaurants in London and New York and Giordanas is absolutely the best restaurant in this area.

“Nothing to get excited about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Maybe it was an off-night, but the pasta was over-cooked ( a sin for a good Italian restaurant) and the bolonese sauce was very watery and not particularly tasty. However, the service was top notch and the wine selection was ample and fairly priced. There is better Italian food in Huatulco.

“Unbelievable Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Giordana's restuarant has been by far one of the best meals we have enjoyed in Huatulco. Of course you can't compare all of the fresh seafood etc. available here but the Italian cuisine is unbelievable. Fresh pasta with Bolognese sauce,top quality cheese and other ingredients and a garlic steak with a selection of sides that made your head spin!!! Roasted eggplant, cheesy spinach, potatoes and grilled brussel sprouts, a small antipasto of pickled onion, pimento and anchovy!! A party on a plate. The dessert then put is all over the top with some of the lightest, creamiest tiramisu and a profiterole with the finest cream center and choc sauce! Then they insisted upon a complimentary lemonchello and an Amercana to end the evening! I forget the starter salad of apples and nuts and a gorgonzola dressing that got the evning started. We couldnt believe it when we recieved the bill as it is very very affordable. About 120 pesos for the steak entre! All in all it was a wonderful eating experience and the place offers outdoor seating as well as a few seats in the back airconditioned room. If you get a chace visit here. Giordana is a wonderful chef!

“Giordana, back in full force!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

After Giordana sold her previous restaurant (Rigoletto) some years ago, we were happy when she opened a small shop where she also installed a couple of tables and served limited meals. More recently, when she moved to larger premises and began serving a full menu, all her previous customers were delighted. We went there last night together with a couple of friends and had another enjoyable meal. Order her "Piatto Casa Antipasti". It is excellent and is a full meal in itself. Or, order the "Vitello Tonato" as a starter, followed by one of her great raviolis. Service by her Italian colleague, Manuel (not Emmanuel, as he insists), is very friendly and efficient. He is also very persuasive with the complimentary limoncello or sambuca after your dinner. Giordanas now has a much wider selection of Italian wines then in the past. Prices for the food and wine are very reasonable. Book in advance as the restaurant is generally busy and ask for a table on the terraza so that you can watch the lively street scene.
