“A MUST! Great food and people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

We walked by A Taste of Italy several times on our trip, and noticed that they were always busy. We decided to check out why, and we were very impressed. The spaghetti and meatballs was absolutely delicious, and my husband and I agreed the meatballs were in our 'top 3' of all time! The owner and his wife and children were there while we were, and they were very warm and welcomed us like family. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly, and the prices can't be beat for such high quality food made with loving care. Don't miss A Taste of Italy, we will be back more than once on our next trip!

“The stuffed eggplant is terrific.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Just off the beach at Olas Altas at the Lazarro Cardenas park. Good for Friday night when they have the Mexican dances in the park. Moderate prices - cheap. Great burgers, pasta, and wine. Small , open air, covered, on busy corner. Quick service, not rushed. Casual dress , reasonable fair prices. Good normal servings.

“Great food at Taste of Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

We love Taste of Italy, the food is always so good and the service is fast and friendly. It is right on a corner so you can sit and watch the people walking by. The owners have a great reputation for great food and $1. beers and $1. margaritas. Their son Troy, also owns Cheeky Monkey downtown, and Sea Monkey on the malacon, both offering the same $1. drinks. Try all 3 places while in Puerto Vallarta.

“Great place for a quick sandwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a very small place with only a few tables. Most of the business is takeout. Very good subs and burgers.

“Tired of Fish?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Try A Taste of Italy for a change of pace during your Puerto Vallarta vacation. Good pizza, a variety of pasta, a pretty decent red wine.
