We ate here for dinner one night. We were staying at Casa Bella right next door, so it was incredibly convenient. Very small restaurant, but very professional staff. I had the Don Corleone - pasta with an orange cream sauce and lobster; and my husband had the same only with shrimp. Both were incredibly good, probably our best meal of... More

Great food and good service for a very reasonable price. We were in Cabo San Lucas for a week and actually came here twice. Small and cosy. Make a reservation! The food is excellent, especially the seafood and pastas.

We have been there twice during this 3 week trip. It is always delightful. We have had fish and pastas. The salads are wonderful. Last time we had lasagna. It was the lightest lasagna I have ever had-a work of art. The flan was perfect. We will keep returning.

We had an awesome dinner here. We had the calamari and antipasto for appetizers and then 4 different pasta dishes. All were great and all were made with the house pasta. The waiter recommended a bottle of cab and it was excellent. The atmosphere is fun and service is good. This restaurant shouldn't be missed on your trip to Cabo.

Had to almost beg for reservation- it's a trick- arrived and dined through an empty restaurant, out of our $100.00 bottle of wine- to their credit they gave us a more expensive bottle for the same price. The cheese on the Ceaser salad was like plastic...service was slow...absolutely nothing memorable...would definitely not return..and I almost NEVER write a unfavorable review...I... More

Thanks for coming in and deciding to enjoy a great bottle of wine. Unfortunately we didn't have your bottle as it had been sold out earlier in the night but glad you enjoyed the upgrade at no charge. Thankfully the last two weeks were sold out status sometimes months in advance. We appreciate all clients patience as we try to... More

The food was delicious. It was a blend of Spanish Tapas and Italian dishes. Service was attentive and friendly. Most of all Invita Bistro was a great value. We've been there twice and it doesn't disappoint.

This restaurant has good food. Yet, the hostess has an attitude that needs correcting. On our first visit, she denied service to us because we did not have a reservation - it was 5:45 pm. So we left even though there were empty tables. Past by the restaurant again at 8:00 - still empty tables. We went back the next... More

Invita Bristo is a cute - small Italian place downtown San Lucas ~ nice ambience but, nothing special... I am surprise by the high number - rate in reviews, It is not a 4 or a 5 by all means. Every dish we order was "just ok." Salad too oily, pasta and minestrone soup ok. Service was excellent.

Thank Kelly R
Invita B, Owner at Invita Bistro, responded to this review

Thanks for coming in and enjoying the service! As we discussed Invita sticks to traditional Italian recipes. Straight from mothers kitchen in Roma. Guests who prefer super saucy may want to remember that this kitchen sticks to the basics. The minestrone is a crowd pleaser usually but will definately have a taste since it's made fresh daily. We look forward... More
