Many tourists stumble into the "Little Italy" district by accident, but it's well worth a trip to discover this traditional Southern Italian restaurant. Mimmo, the proprietor, watches over every detail and the chefs happily cook dishes to order. The homemade Bruschetta bread is excellent. The Gamberi al Pesto combines succulent shrimp with a garlic and basil paste. There are also plenty of pizzas of various dimensions and toppings. The interior is air-conditioned complemented by a pleasant outdoor terrace. Dress is resort-casual.
My partner and I ate here a couple of days ago. We were the only party of two guys in the place at dinnertime. The restaurant was about 1/2 full. The owner made a point of going table to table, including those all around us, greeting every party, shaking hands, introducing himself, etc., but he completely ignored us. I am not at all someone with an axe to grind, or a chip on my shoulder, but this was just too blatant. At one point, our waiter had been chatting with us for less than a minute, and the owner appeared, frowned and shooed him over to the table next to ours, a male/female couple, the clear implication being that the waiter was neglecting the "real" customers. The food was fine, but I wouldn't recommend this place to any gay folks with any sense of self-respect. Whatever the quality of the food, why go somewhere where you're clearly not welcome?
You end up in PV thinking you only have good Mexican food to eat. But instead, they have a couple of great Italian restaurants. I had the sauteed mahi mahi in garlic and butter, the mrs had the penne with eggplant and zuchini. Both were excellent. Had a great Sicilian red wine. Dessert was a caramel flan, that was one of the best flans we have ever had.
We loved this place! The food was excellent and the service was great too! People in Puerto Vallarta are hardly ever in a hurry so you have to expect things to be a little slower. We live in Las Vegas so the slower pace was a welcome change. I highly recommend this restaurant for the food!
The food was awesome, however we waited an hour and 45 minutes for a pizza. We found out the LONG wait was due to only 2 cooks in the kitchen- the owner is cheap, rude, and an insensitive person. We politely complained and he totally disregarded us. Ignoring the customer- people actually walked out! He yelled at his staff, when the problem really lies with his cheapness in not hiring enough cooks for the kitchen. There were no appologies for the lateness, not even an explanation. The waiters too feel he is unfair and unreasonable. They are appologetic and very nice. They can't complain for fear of losing their jobs. I would NOT go back no matter how good the food is, almost 2 hours is unacceptable for a wait. Not even a warning- "an hour wait" or something. Then we would understand. We were seated and not served after ordering for over 90 minutes!!!
