“What A Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

An absolute must for PV visitors. So worth the drive for a charming restaurant! Carpaccio Di Manzo excellent and Osso Buco a serious challenger to Piero's LVNV. Service wonderful. Can't wait to return!

“Homemade pasta & great service, wonderful atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

The concierge at our hotel had recommended this restaurant to us and we gave it a try. It was a 20 minute taxi ride from Nuevo Vallarta beyond Bucerias. The restaurant was lovely, with vines and glowing candles and lanterns. The chandeliers and wall sconces are wine bottles and it's a great affect. The table setting was upscale with nice linens but not a stuffy, fancy place. The wine selection was extensive and the food was wonderful, highly recommend anything with the homemade pasta. The dish I ordered was a bit spicy for my tastes but the pasta was divine. Service was attentive but not overbearing and there was some live music performed by a solo strolling gentleman with a great voice. All in all, it was a great experience and worth the ride from Nuevo Vallarta. We will return.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

Every time I have eaten in this establishment the faire has always been great. The owner and his staff are quite polished. This is a great place if you want a break from the regular Mexican cuisine. The restrooms are kept clean (a good sign of a clean working kitchen). I was invited to a birthday party on an occasion last year. The food came out in a timely fashion and well prepared.

“Good food but over priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

We were there on a quiet night. The resto is on the main street in La Cruz. It's very nicely appointed with proper linens, etc. Also well maintained. The waiter was super friendly and helpful. I'm Italian and mentioned some spelling errors on the menu. He laughed and said another Italian guy had pointed out the same errors the previous year (so I'm wondering.. why are the words still spelt incorrectly?). But I digress. We had the mixed greens salad. I had the chicken parmigiana. My wife had the beef medallions. We ordered a bottle of Chianti. The food was nicely prepares but the presentation was mediocre. I had my chicken served on a bed of tagliatelle. No veg. Two espressos to close out the night. With tip 1450 pesos which for Bahia area is on the pricey side. Other observations... all the wines on the list were expensive relative to prices at the local shops. Usual 2-3X resto mark up seemed more like 3-5X at Frascati. So they get points for service and food but take a knock on pricing.
