We are spending our summers in Sayulita a small village on the Nayarit coast, not far from another small village of San Sebastian del Oeste - another small and peaceful Mexican village, however in the mountains of Sera Madre. Few years back, someone suggested a visit to San Sebastian as an interesting one day trip to mountains above Puerto Vallarta.... More

A trip to beautiful and historic San Sebastián was enhanced with a very enjoyable, authentic Italian lunch at family owned and managed Montebello Restaurant. The menu offers a wide variety of salads, pastas, and pizzas giving our group of six hungry adults plenty of choices. Nice wines and a variety of beer added to our pleasureable break at mid-day.

Incredibly good ITALIAN food in this tiny hilltop town in Mexico. ITALIAN chef, from Rimini, son is the waiter, homemade pasta, NY style pizza🍴🍴. Worth a day trip if you are in Puerta Vallarta for a while. Bravo, Chef WALTER. Gracie Mille for a most pleasant afternoon and a great meal.

Enjoyed an excellent dinner in this restaurant which is in a historic house with a beautiful courtyard full with wild orchids. The friendly owners cooks excellent pasta dishes and a variety of pizzas. All the food is authentic Italian prepared with diligence and love. The atmosphere in the courtyard surrounded by orchids is great for a romantic evening.

We started with a very simple salad, but OH MY GOSH... it was amazing! Plus ordered a salami and mushroom pizza which may have just been the best pizza we've ever had! Drank a bottle of local wine, and chatted up the owner. Love the seating area as it provides a quaint, inviting atmosphere. Next time we visit San Sebastian,... More

The four of us each ordered a different entree--fettuccine alfredo, lasagna, cannelloni, and spinach and cheese ravioli. We couldn't decide which meal was the best. Everything is homemade including the bread. The pasta was light and delicate and all the sauces were wonderful. The meal includes a green salad and bread. . We have eaten Italian food all over the...

This is a must go place when you visit the Puerto Vallarta area. We were drawn into this charming restaurant by the view from the doorway. A short hallway leads to an open air patio filled with native plants and local art. The menu consists of traditional Italian fare. The pasta is made on site as well and the Limoncello.... More

Having heard about Montebello's on the Puerto Vallarta Forum, we determined to make it our dining spot on our day trip to San Sebastian. The experience was one of a kind! To enjoy the most amazing Italian food on a little side street of a gorgeous cobble-stoned ancient town, what can be more special! The homemade pastas were outstanding! The... More
