Party of 8 of us visited Gianni's and the atmosphere was great. They brought a fan close to our table to keep the evening air circulating. This night was not a good night, as the rhythm was slightly off. The waiters and waitresses tried so very hard but a couple of them were new and did not help matters. The Bar was attentive, and our gnocchi was great. Others in our party had a hard time with the service, but that will improve . I would go back in a heartbeat. The owner was involved and responded to everyones needs. The menu is vast with many Italian dishes...... My vote is to definitely have some good Italian while visiting La Ropa. Its worth a drive from Ixtapa too.

Our annual visit. We come for the nice evening ambience off the beach on La Ropa road. Reservation for 6 at 7 PM. A bit of organized chaos as Gianni said one of his waiters did not show up. He wanted the appetizer orders before the drink order as he was worried about the kitchen keeping up (place was getting busy). Asked for glasses of water but would only sell bottles. Not all the wines on his menu were available. The red wine offered was OK when it arrived but was way too warm.
The food.
Credit to the kitchen the appetizers ordered arrived at the same time. Good calamari, the capresse was mediocre from past meals. Mains were mostly good, gnocchi not as well made as previous visits. The linguini pasta used garlic from a jar so not as tasty as fresh cut. Got the feeling the restaurant is slipping in quality. Its a nice setting and hope this was a one off experience. Washrooms OK, credit cards accepted.

This was one of the best meals we have had on this trip. Outstanding authentic Italian cuisine. Gnocchi, lasagna and pasta were very fresh. We started with caprese and calamari. Our group had a variety of entrees. The meat sauce (ragu) was some of the best I have ever had. Tiramisu and cannoli for dessert. Gianni and his chef wife live on the property. He is a great host. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely little Italian spot. The food is not the best Italian in Zihua, but the atmosphere is lovely, the service is very good and the prices are very good. We will go again!
