“One of my new favorite restaurants in town!”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

We have been visiting Ricotta often since they opened this past spring. We live in PV and have lived here for many years and Ricott is close to home. When a friend of ours told us about it and invited us to join him for dinner there, we were hooked! Great food, awesome service, affordable prices and a glass of yummy house wine for $35pesos, what more could you ask for.

The recipes are simple combinations of classic Italian ingredients that has something for everyone. The salads are fresh and made to order, the pizzas are awesome and so affordable and the pasta is great on a hungry night! We go so often that they know our order; 2 glass of wine, caprese & cesar salad followed by a mushroom pizza or a corleone pasta. . .thank you very much!

If you are in the PV area and looking for a low-key and relaxed dining experience off the beaten path, you will love this spot. The food is great and you will be happy you visited!!

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

Best restaurant in Vallarta. No doubt. Excellent food, excellent service. Willy, the owner, is a fantastic happy fix it all no problemas guy. Always smilig, making superbly tasty pizzas and other Italian food. Great winelist, great food and service other much more costly restaurants only dream of. Located near CostCo in Fluvial just behind Banamex bank. This is mine and my gfs favourite place in Vallarta

“Exceptional Pizza and Pasta- Great Prices!”
Reviewed August 24, 2011

This is our favorite "go-to" Italian restaurant in Vallarta. It is not in the tourist zone but VERY easy to get to. It is across the street from Costco- on Francisco Villa, behind the BanaMex bank.
It is small but nice, with a real wood oven and some outdoor seating. (Inside has A/C)
Prices are very good with most pasta dishes between 60 and 95 Pesos. A Caesar salad is 35 Pesos, Greek salad is 45 Pesos. Pizzas are about 85 to 95 Pesos- with a light thin crunchy crust and nice cheese and toppings. William is SUPER nice and bi-lingual and will also cater to your needs if possible. (he changes my pizza a little for me)

You can easily get here from the southside of Puerto Vallarta by the Green Pitilal/Fco. VIlla bus or a taxi from the Hotel Zone is about 50 Pesos. He also has a nice wine menu and the prices are also very reasonable. If you use Facebook, look for it, Ricotta Cocina Italiana- as they often post specials. (Wednesday is usually 2 for 1 pizza!) They also offer local delivery on regular menu items.

I highly recommend them- there are other Italian places in the area but this one is by far the best, best prices and service.

Ricotta is off of Francisco Villa Street. Small and quaint with unbelievable pastas, pizzas and salads at amazing local prices! If your are looking for quality food I highly recommend this restaurant during your stay in Puerto Vallarta! My son loved their pepperoni pizza! They also have beer that's ice cold!!!!!!
