I was surprised Gayetano is not there anymore. You can tell the change. But still good enough if you walk around.

Very friendly restaurant. Pasta is homemade and the lasagna bolognese and ravioli in a cream and salmon sauce were excellent. The dessert, called tortino, was similar to a chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream—so good! We were only in Puerto Vallarta four days but...we went twice (and ordered the same dishes) because we liked it so much. I would have given it five stars except that the calamari was awful, completely tasteless and none of us could eat it. Seemed out of place compared to everything else we ordered.More

Name change, but same owner, Sylvia. Best lasagna anywhere. We had lasagna, chicken piccata and pasta bolognese. All were cooked to perfection. Also, the place a a slight remodel making the garden more open to everyone.

Took a group of 20 people on a Friday night (with notice) and couldn't believe the quick service we received. 2 Tables of 10 each and each were served drinks and food in 1 hour marvelous!!!

Something is missing in the kitchen. The shrimp pasta was not tasty and had cheese in it (cheese with fish?) The mussels were dry. Service was very good. The remodeled dining space is improved. Maybe the restaurant in in transition. I'd love it to be...more authentically Italian.More

Di Nuovo, the former Boccon Da Vino, is an excellent neighborhood restaurant on Basillo Badillo. The calamari is the best in Vallarta. The salads are fresh and delicious with a homemade vinagerette. We had chicken parm, spaghetti bolognese, and a veal picatta that were all...exceptional. Our waiter, Fabian, is very helpful and guided our selections with professionlism. Fabian recommended a very nice Chianti that complemented our meal very well. All in all a wonderful experience at reasonable prices.More

My spouse and I have decided new places in PV. There are so many good eateries in town. Bocon was one of this places. The ambiance is cute and cozy. The wait staff friendly but the food was mediocre at best. The pasta lacked flavor...and the sauces were subpar. We left wanting more. I doubt we’d return to this place.More

This restaurant is small and unobtrusive, but it has great food, wine and service. If you want excellent Italian food, get a meal here.

Given the recent epidemic of look-at-me Italian restaurants in the Zona Romantica, it would be easy to miss this fine, understated Italian restaurant. Not fancy, just delicious. The fettuccine was out of this world, and the passion fruit ice cream was amazing. Good, very attentive,...very friendly service in a place where you could dress up or wear your shorts and tank top and feel equally comfortable. This is not a place to see and be seen, it's a place to enjoy.More

I was there in November, so I do not know if it is open now. It does have one kind of open air garden area but I am not sure if dogs are allowed.
