The food here is delicious and it is not expensive at all. The place is charming and is perfect for a date. The staff is really friendly with you.

The best Little Italian restaurant in PV. The pomodoro sauce is made of mostly fresh tomatoes and the wood oven pizza is great too. Another great thing is most of the pastas are under 100 pesos and the wines are only 48 pesos.

We found Ricotta accidentally one night on the way back from Pitial, stopped in, and are glad we did! The food is very good and the service is prompt! Dessert looked delicious, but we were short on time; will have to return to indulge!

I eat here regularly. Their wood fired oven throws the best pizza in the bay. Outdoor seating available, albeit fronting on a busy street.

This little Italian Restaurant has great food and service. Willy the owner is very personable and greets us with a smile everytime we go in there for dinner. Everytime we go to Puerto Vallarta we always try to get there at least once.

This is a great little Italian bistro that is difficult to find and as we found out not always open. They serve inexpensive pizza and salads in a spare but comfortable atmosphere. There are a couple of drawbacks however, that you need to be aware of. First the Los Tules address they give is very difficult to find and may... More

My husband and I visited Ricotta Restaurant last year and loved it so much we had to return this year! We were not disappointed as the food and service were excellent. We had a Caesar salad and pizza (the best we have ever had), and, of course,a bottle of wine. William, the owner who speaks impeccable English, personally came to... More

When we arrived at 7:00 P.M. the restaurant was empty and the lights were not working. We were going to have a glass of wine and leave. But the lights went on and we were glad we stayed. The salads were excellent, especially the caprese. Three of us had pizza and one had ravioli. All were excellent and the prices... More

Great Italian restaurant, the food is great and the prices are very affordable. The fire wood pizzas are one of the best I have ever tasted. The location is just a few minutes away from any area in Vallarta.
