My family and I found Pinocchio's our first night in Puerto Vallarta. We couldn't resist a brick oven pizza even though we were in Mexico. This was by far our favorite place for dinner our entire vacation. The pizza and pasta are excellent, and the waiters are exceptional. Definitely worth a visit or two!

What a terrific place to stumble upon. My wife and I recently visited Puerto Vallarta. We had planned eat at the resort or try and stay with local cuisine but what a fantastic find. This place was so good that we ate twice and made it our last meal of the trip. The service was perfect, English is welcome, and... More

After a bit of shopping near the Rio Cuale, my husband and I stumbled upon this little restaurant on the boardwalk. Julio, our server, was excellent. We ordered the Pizza Mexicana, chock full of chicken, cheese, corn, and jalapeños, and cooked in a brick oven. It was quite delicious and reasonably priced. Menus in Spanish and English. They're not lying... More

Visited the malecon on Saturday evening and stopped for a bite to eat here. Nice pizza baked in a stone oven at a reasonable price.

Our family of seven stopped in here as out two youngest wanted pizza. The pizza was fantastic!! It's hard to want to come back home and eat large franchise pizza after eating here. The pizza, service and cost were all excellent!!! For extra entertainment while waiting for our pizzas our grandson sat at the little spa next door where you... More

Enjoyed the guapita salad, mixture of fruit, candied pumpkin seeds, lettuce, savory cheese, sproats. Easily shared, good starter. Meat lovers pizza was made with tasty fresh ingredients, considering pizza places in PV, pizza on the small side. Service was average, nothing stood out. Prices are average. Not sure about returning.

I came here for lunch with my wife and we ordered the BBQ pizza, and an appetizer of the wings. Oddly enough the appetizer came only after our pizza, but not until we had finished it, and the wings were totally burned. The chicken was tough, dry, and overall pretty tasteless. The pizza was lacking also, while it tasted pretty... More

We sat outside right along the Malecon Boardwalk so the atmosphere was fun and bustling. The pizza was good, prices were right and it was a quick, easy dinner.
