Worst pizza I have ever tasted. Ordered two to be sure. Garbage. Cracker crust with minimum cheese. Can't cover cracker. Tomato sauce. Can't cover cracker. One pepperoni per slice. Call Dominos. They deliver.

Just beside the end of the bridge heading over to the Romantic Zone, we stopped for some pizza and were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Tangy sauce, crisp thin crust, baked in a wood oven. The service was excellent: friendly, attentive, and helpful. You could tell the staff worked well together and cared about their guests. They sell... More

My family and I found Pinocchio's our first night in Puerto Vallarta. We couldn't resist a brick oven pizza even though we were in Mexico. This was by far our favorite place for dinner our entire vacation. The pizza and pasta are excellent, and the waiters are exceptional. Definitely worth a visit or two!

This place was so good that we ate twice and made it our last meal of the trip. The service was perfect, English is welcome, and... More

After a bit of shopping near the Rio Cuale, my husband and I stumbled upon this little restaurant on the boardwalk. Julio, our server, was excellent. We ordered the Pizza Mexicana, chock full of chicken, cheese, corn, and jalapeños, and cooked in a brick oven. It was quite delicious and reasonably priced. Menus in Spanish and English. They're not lying... More

Visited the malecon on Saturday evening and stopped for a bite to eat here. Nice pizza baked in a stone oven at a reasonable price.
