We have been traveling to Cabo for 15 years & have our favorite restaurants: Maro's Shrimp House, Sabbatini's, Alcaravea, & Las Gucamayas. This year we discovered from our activities director on Medano beach a new Italian restaurant, SOAVE, that has only been opened about 11 months - yeah! It was delicious!
Soave is a very small (approx. 10 tables) restaurant with a great staff. The owner, Diego, greeted us with a big smile & a little English with little more Spanish.The extensive pasta menu is posted on the wall without explanation - this required our waiter, Alberto, to describe each dish to us. The menu consisted of almost 20 pasta dishes, 1 meat dish, & 1 fish dish. (One suggestion we have is that they may want to print/laminate a few menus in English so that guests do not have to ask the waiter to repeat the info about each item - too much to remember.) We were brought a great crostini dish with a wonderful dipping sauce that consisted of garlic, olive oil, & chile - this was fantastic! We had 4 different different pasta dishes & they were ALL great. The bread they served with dinner was very different then the crostini - it was very dense & not like anything we had had before. Maybe it's something from their region of Italy. We preferred the first crostini bread.
They have an extensive wine selection and since only a few of us wanted wine, we opted for a glass of the house wine. They were gracious enough to allow us to try both the while & red. Both were nice - However, when we received the bill, we were surprised to see the price of a 1/2 glass of house wine being at 100 pesos, approx. $8.50 a glass for an OK wine. And we're in Mexico....next time we'll ask first, as there was no wine list, everything is on the wall. The big reason for our surprise is that this price exceeded some of our entrees.
This restaurant is a gem - service was great, food was great, and the decor is really nice. A little Italian music would have been added to the atmosphere. We would rate this restaurant better than Sabbatini's & definitely less expensive!

Just got back from Cabo and tried a new restaurant... we go several times a year so we are always looking for new restaurants.... Soave is great..... only 6-7 tables in the small quaint, neat little restaurant.... very clean restaurant.... Owner is from Verona Italy. All the pastas are home made.... they were fantastic.... all of us in the party thought it was fantastic and we all had different items...... In addtion, it is very reasonable ... 10.00 - 15:00 US for an entre....

The best pasta in Cabo. My favorite was the Spaghetti Carbonara. I have eaten this all over the US and Italy. This is the top one. The wine by the glass pour is generous and a very good selection. Not many tables so make a reservation. Parking right next door at indoor parking garage. Every thing is home made and the owners and help are all from Italy. A great find.

We always like small, quaint restaurants that exist because they love to serve others with their gifts. Such is the case with Diego at Soave. This is a Cabo must! Don't miss out on great food, AWESOME service and a wonderfully decorated space, even down to the wine bottles as lighting.
