Fantastic, authentic Italian. Best meal of the trip. staff. Would go there often if it wasn't 3000 miles from home

We jogged here one night from where we were staying near the beach and it gets so dark (no street lights) as you approach del Pueblo that you can see millions of stars when you look up.

We didn't have reservations so waited about 10 minutes before being seated, but that was fine because we ordered some drinks and hung out with the sweet, grey-faced dog roaming around the property.

At our kind waitress' recommendation, we ordered the mejillones a la diabla (mussels in a savory tomato/garlic sauce), the shrimp ravioli in the pink sauce, and a pizza supreme. Tons of food but super tasty, wish I could have that mussel dish every week! We sat outside in the charming front lawn area and enjoyed our visit very much—hope to get back there one day to try more dishes.

After a fantastic meal in April (2013) we had to go back to Cafe Del Pueblo on our return to playa Grande. Once again our meals were all varied and delicious, with the salmon ravioli and mussels diablo at the top of our lists. Service and atmosphere were also delightful. We are looking for an excuse to go back to try the pizzas!

Bring your appetite to this quaint dining establishment. Not anyone one in our party of 8 was hungry and couldn't say anything negative about this place. A must stop while visiting this area! Hands down the best in this area!

We were looking for a place to fill time as we waited to see the leatherback turtles nearby at 11:00 PM, and we stumbled upon this beautiful little Italian restaurant. Very relaxed and friendly owners and waitress, and the pasta was excellent. Never did see any turtles that night, but this restaurant made the evening a success anyway!
