The Carbonara fettucini was excellent, one of the better carbonara's sauces I've ever had but being hungry I found portion a little on small side and the sicilian thin crust pizza was very tasty with good amount of toppings. Service was friendly and attentive.

We went in for lunch based on the reviews and the wonderful smell. I had a beer and my wife had the margarita special. Her drink was very good, unusual for sure. She said it was cold and refreshing, not too salty or too heavy on the cheap booze. After all, it was a 17 peso drink. We had the... More

Imagine my surprise to find an Italian restaurant in Puerto Vallarta on the top of my list for best overall places to eat. Not sure how I got here the first night of my arrival as I had my heart set on 'Mexican'. Very good meal indeed, vowed I would be back. Returned in day light to discover 17 peso... More

Not a great location but the food and employees make up for it. Best pasta I've had in Puerto Vallarta and the price is right. Pacifico for 17 pesos and pastas all good. Had mine with meatballs which were great.

The service is great! Thank you always Roger, we love you. The drinks are cheap. They speak English and have a baño for patrons. What's not to love. I've been eating here for several years and they've stayed consistently good in food and service.

I love A Taste of Italy. First of all. Roger and Gloria are fantastic. I finally had the white clam sauce and it was sooo good. It came with garlic toasts that made it heavenly. To top it all off I had a yummy lime margarita. Great value for awesome food. We will be back many times on our holiday!

While in Puerto Vallarta stop by A Taste of Italy. The Italian food is excellent, the food is always to order and hot. You can not beat the prices anywhere in PV for that quality of food & drinks. Best of all, the atmosphere is casual and Roger and his family are the best and make you feel like you... More

We ate here almost every Friday night of our holiday. The pizza was good and big enough for the 2 of us to share. They also prepared dishes like lasagna that you could purchase then heat at home.
