“Found a nice Italian spot in PV”
Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

We happened into this little Italian restaurant for sunset, some wine and to smoke a cigar. (They ave two outdoor smoking areas). We were quite pleased with the wait staff so decided to blowoff our original dinner destination and stay. Along with a second botle of wine we enjoyed a delicious risotto with shrimp, very tasty raviolis and a flavorful lasagna. They make their own pastas for several if heir dishes. I would skip the Cioppotti as it as almost no seafood in it. More of a tomatoe based vegetable soup with a little seafood.
Sunset was quite rewarding but the we moved to the outside dining area in the back as the street nose in this area is very loud. It s in the first block or two where the new Malecon ends and buildings are back at street front.
We will return when in the area again.

“Good spot for lunch”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Nice view across from the Malecon, but noisy from street traffic. Washrooms absolutely spotless, and the place is sooo clean.

Had pepperoni pizza for $95.00 peso, made right in the wood burning clay oven. Very good! Also had the Siciliano panilla for $105.00 peso, but that wasn't as good. The artichock had the outside peel still on and the bacon wasn't cooked throughly.

Service was attentive, but not over powering. Would go back and try something else on the menu for sure. Beers were on special 2 x 1 at $110.00 peso.

“La Posta”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

i just dropped by for lunch one day, totally unplanned, and discovered the wonders of LaPosta.
The spotless floors and great view are only marred by the occasional bus and traffic noise. I wish I could pick up this restaurant and put it on a quieter street!
The food was very good - for a minute I almost felt I was in Italy. Real parmesan cheese and wonderful garlic scents make dining here a must!

Very attentive and friendly staff at the front of Malecon in Puerto Vallarta. Great location and nice Italian flavor. We had pizza, lasagna and ravioli. Out of the three pasta turned out the best choice!
Great additon of Italian flavor to Puerto Vallarta food scene.
Great location and awesome sunset views!
