“Good Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We made reservations, again this year, for our family of 11 adults. The food ranged from good to excellent, depending on which family member you interviewed. The waiters were friendly and spoke good English. Our only problem was that the service was VERY slow. I'd recommend asking for a table outside as over the years we've had both and prefer the outside the best. We were thankful we had plenty of margies during our wait. I'd highly recommend making a reservation during the busy winter months as it's very popular and always crowded.

“Loved the blackened Tuna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

My family thought this was one of the best restaurants in Nuevo Vallarta. It is easy walking distance, maybe 10 minutes from the Grand Luxxe. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We only were there for dinner. Unfortunately their pizza oven was broken, so we didn't get to try the pizza. Instead we had Ahi fish and penne basil pasta. My blackened tuna was the best I'd had in a week of trying different restaurants. The place gets busy and if you aren't there promptly at reservation time they do give your table away. We watched it happen and people were very unhappy to find even being 5 minutes late they had no reservation. This is a good value for what you get. They were out of several selections of wine, but offered something comparable. We were a party of 14.

“Great little find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

The concierge recommended this to my husband, as almost as good, but slightly less expensive than Tramonte at the Grand Mayan. 10 of us went, ranging from foodies to picky eaters, seniors and kids. All of us enjoyed it thoroughly.

The waiters were friendly and knowledgeable. There were no issues with different bills as there had been at other restaurants. Caesar salads, pasta dishes, seafood and pizza were all ordered, and everyone enjoyed their dishes.

We sat on their patio, and it was a lovely evening. The live music was great as well. We'll definitely head back.

“Good Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We ordered a pesto pizza and it was delicious. They were very willing to make half the pizza one way, and the other half another (of combos that were the same price). They included a little plastic bag of crushed chilies and parmesan. One large pizza fed two hungry adults, one child, and we still had 2 pieces to spare.

Agreed with other reviewer, it's now called Napoli.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We always make a point of going for dinner once, even twice, when in PV for a week. Traditional Italian great pasta and pizza, and fresh salads. Definitely one of the dining highlights in NV!
