Pizza may not be quite as good as Emilio's, but it's about half the price and one of the better ones around. I like the albondigas with pasta - fish balls with a good, not sweet marinara. I believe the owner is Italian. Wine is reasonably priced as well and they put whites in an ice bucket without being asked.

My family has been eating at Dal Tuscano's in Ixtapa since my grandparents started visiting the resort town during the 70's. The owner is from Sicily and can be found smoking a cigar and playing domino's or poker with his friends at a table by the bar most nights. The food is some of the best Italian food I've ever had (and I've been to Italy!). The restaurant has always accommodated my large family and whatever friends we drag along. The appetizers are delicious. My personal favorite is the Prosciutto e Melone. My brother's love the Alfredo sauce, but I usually go for a red sauce. The seafood options are also wonderful, or so my parents tell me. The ambiance of the location is also really wonderful given that it's all outdoors. The bar is usually playing an international football game or in February, I recall my brother watching the Olympic games between courses. I've made great memories at Dal Tuscano's and I'm looking forward to many more in the future. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Next to Reubens Hamburgers in a little square.

Pasta is OK, but seriously the sauces where lacking zest. Have tried a couple of sphagetti dishes, linguine, penne, lasagna and varied fish a d seafood dishes over the years, although not bad, none of the dishes were better than just OK.

We usually just go here when our vacationing friends feel the need for something 'other than Mexican'

For really good tasty pasta try Laguna's, beside Senor Frogs. Great atmosphere, high end food at a descent price and great staff.

We had planned on another Italian restaurant but it was closed. So we sauntered on, came upon dal Tuscano and glad we did. Excellent service and the coconut shrimp was phenomenal! The home made pasta was also excellent and just a fun evening with friends! The bano's were very clean and that makes you feel good about the entire restaurant .
