Simply good authentic Italian food right on the Puerto Vallarta Malecon. Fantasic white pizza. Not really a restaurant for very small children its more of an adult atmosphere.

Delicious food, terrific service. Everything was fabulous from appetizers, loved the octopus carpaccio to the pizza, 4 cheeses and 4 meats, to the main dishes, the steak was better than the Argentinian steak house!

We went 2x on this trip and thanks to the concierge @ Villa Del Palmar for recommending to us. Restaurant doesn't do much advertising but was packed on a monday and friday during first week of July.

Very reasonable price wise as for 9 adults, with a bottle of wine each time, was under 350USD each time. Great value. Even if you just go for pizza well worth the trip.

Service was fabulous and beautiful views. get a table close to the front or upstairs and you can see outside to the boardwalk and ocean. Go at sunset and have a romantic dinner too!

This is a definite recommend for anyone who wants Italian food in Puerta Vallarta.

Enjoyed the yummy pizza and bruschetta last week. Visited this place 3 years ago and it was just as great as back then!!! Service was fantastic too! Didn't see anything but empty plates at the tables, do yourself a favor and treat yourself!!!!

Food and service is always memorable. Although the veal Marcella was bit bland and the chicken parmesan didn't have any mozzarella cheese on it. The pasta with meat sauce was excellent.

I have been going to vallarta for 20 yers. I never imagined eating italian in vallarta untill i was invited by a friend to go here. That was 12 years ago and i am still an avid fan.
I had my wedding reception here in June last year and Eugenio made sure everything was perfect.
Food - By far the best italian ive ever had.
Pizza made in the old fashioned oven with fire,thin crust.
Calamari to die for
canneloni - mouth watering
Prices - Great for the amount of food you get and quality they are reasoanble
Service- Outstanding
If you just want a quick drink they sit down bar is nice.
Amazing view of Banderas bay either upstairs or down.
Please go here it is a must cant wait to go back in october
