Went to Il Mare in March. Had eaten there several years earlier and for some reason we didn't have a good memory but decided to give it another try. Boy, were we wrong about our prior impression. Nice open restaurant overlooking Zihua Bay. Good Italian food, excellent pastas. We had a delightful meal and will return next year

Revisted this restaurant again and was equally impressed.I had intended on trying something new this time but was drawn back to the Clam Fettucine with wine and garlic sauce.I`m sure there must be a whole pound of clams in it,and it was as excellent as the last time.Can`t wait to return here next time,when I will probably have the same...

Beautiful ocean / sunset view but more importantly exceptional food and service. Pasta and seafood dishes were wonderful. Large portions and rich flavours. Owner came by and checked on our service. Eat here twice on our trip it was so good. Busy for a reason so reservations needed if you want a nice view.

Make a reservation! The view is spectacular, and you will want a table up front. The fish is fresh as it should be, but done perfectly. I had linguini Vongole, and the clams were superb. Say hi to Carlos!

Had a very decent meal here on a Sunday night. My pasta was amazing and so was the carpaccio appetizer. The others focussed on seafood apps and mains, and although understandable given we are in an authentic fishing village, all things seafood were pretty ordinary. Not bad but ordinary. Which didn't surprise me because like all local goods and harvests,... More

I made sure to reserve a table before we left Canada. I mentioned it was my boyfriend's bday, it was a special occasion and wanted a great view, which is exactly what we got. It was spectacular !! We had drinks while watching the sunset. Couldn't ask for a better setting. We ordered appies; calamari (so so) and prosciutto melon... More

We enjoyed a relaxing view of the sunset and a dinner with friends on the lower level of the restaurant. This gave us a "balcony with 3 tables--all to ourselves. The food was adequate, the service was good, and the prices were reasonable. Again, I was disappointed in the number of Italian style offerings in this mexican tourist town, rather... More

The atmosphere was wonderful, our server was very attentive. The food was not good at all, the Spaghetti Bolognese with meatballs was dry, the Shrimp Adriatica was awful the sauce was bitter, the spinach tasted more like dandelion greens, just plain unpalatable. All of our dishes were over salted. The caprese salad and ravioli were good.

We had a great meal here and enjoyed an amazingly beautiful sunset. We did not know we needed a reservation, but the host was very gracious and found us a table. The service here is top-shelf.
