I love Italian food so I was happy to go here with some friends one night. I think we all enjoyed our meals. Seating is a little uncomfortable but that seems to be the case all over. I would definitely return here for pizza or pasta.

I really enjoyed the pizza..I can't eat red sauce so they made it with garlic and olive oil as the base..very good..my husband had 4 cheese pasta that he enjoyed..They had piano music that made the atmosphere very enjoyable. The prices were also very reasonable

Encuentros serves up the most delicious pasta and pizzas in a more elegant (yet relaxed) setting. Choose from comfortable sofas and sitting areas for friends to gather, or at the bar where you might have the joy of conversing with Nazarius who is articulate, pleasant and very welcoming. From 6:00 - 8:00 PM nightly, Encuentros features 2 for 1 drink specials. Ask your server about the nightly bar specials. If you are up late (or until the early morning hours), Encuentros is open until 2:00 AM. My friend Henry and I visited Encuentro several times during our three week visit. We shared bountiful fresh salads, an array of perfectly prepared pizzas and pastas during our stay. We were continually delighted by the warm welcome, attentive service, our conversations with Nararius, and the fresh (and flavorful) food.

My husband and I come to PV for three months every winter and love the choice of restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. Last night at Encuentros we shared the spring rolls and then shared a Greek Salad and then we each had our own pizza. We each had a mojito (it was 2 for 1). Our bill was 328 pesos (about$28). All of the food was excellent. The only thing I would change is the dressing on the salad. If there was dressing I could not taste it and I asked for oil and vinegar which they brought. The pizza was crispy and delicious. Everything was fresh and tasty and we will definitely be returning.

Thank you "wasen" very much for taking the time to write your comments and opinión regarding your dining experience at Encuentros. These comments are extremely important to us for they are what make us improve were improvement is needed, and I have certainly taken note regarding the dressing on the Mykonos (Greek) Salad in order to make it 100% satisfying in the immediate future, thank you. Looking forward to once again having the opportunity to welcome you at Encuentros when again in Puerto Vallarta, best regards with many thanks.
