It was our first time here after reading reviews thought we would give it a try. Nice wine selection and typical North American Italian menu. The pizzas are very good thin crust and not to much toppings and the lasagna was delicious with a smoky tomato taste. I am guessing ingredients come out of a box or can however it... More

We spent a week in PV to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday and went to this restaurant based on my aunt's recommendation and trip advisor reviews. The food was good, and the service was excellent. My nephew had told them about the birthday when he made the reservation for eight of us. They did quite the show when they brought... More

We like to take a break from Mexican cuisine and this is a fantastic place to do it! On our first visit, we sat in the ground floor window looking over the Malecon; on our second, we sat upstairs away from the windows. We enjoyed both locations. The service was friendly, efficient and helpful. We had glasses of wine on... More

Having lived in Vallarta for 12 years we finally decided to give it a go when we passed by and there was no queue! Not going to bother again. There are much better Italian restaurants in Vallarta with better service and way better food...fresh made pasta and sauces rather than the bland and not home made pasta here...it was not... More

We love the food here & the waiters are wonderful. It is a loud and always busy restaurant (a good sign). However the host doesn't speak English well and they have no good system on checking people in. We've seen twice now people get irate and hostile with her for waiting too long. As long as you are prepared to... More

Right on the Malecon, very convenient and very busy. However, pasta sauces were just mediocre and my Merlot was served cold in a chilled glass.

we had vegetarian meal. pizza and spaghetti. I could not believe how good the spaghetti was made. the place is super crowded for dinner, so plan ahead and go an hour early. service is slow if the place is full, however, it is worth the wait.

Thank Jimi S
