This tiny hole in the wall serves excellent Italian cuisine and is staffed entirely by Mexicans mostly ladies. The food is great, as is the wine & it is very reasonably priced. You are advised to get there early if you don't have a reservation....More

I googled and found it in an article that someone fron the Calgary Herald wrote about Puerto Vallarta. This is a great place to eat Italian food. It is owned by Roman Antonio Barbato and his Mexican wife. It is a small family operated restaurant that serves excellent quite reasonable food.
