We went there with another couple who had dined there a year ago. We had trouble finding it and as I walked in the door I wondered if it was just a pizza counter. Once inside there was a delightful courtyard with a tree growing...More

We had the caprese salad and a wood fire oven pizza, both very good and very reasonably priced, they have a good selection of wines and a few available by the glass. Overall an excellent choice.

My wife and I were wandering around old town Vallarta not sure what we wanted to eat, when we stumbled into this place. It had a friendly inviting atmosphere. Service was good, and the pizza caprese was great. I would definitely recommend checking it out.

Usually the food is the star of the show, but the effusive owner and handsome waiter make this a very pleasant dining spot. I imagine salads are included with each entree(which is strange as some of the entrees ARE salads) but all I know is...More

I googled and found it in an article that someone fron the Calgary Herald wrote about Puerto Vallarta. This is a great place to eat Italian food. It is owned by Roman Antonio Barbato and his Mexican wife. It is a small family operated restaurant that serves excellent quite reasonable food.
