This was an excellent Italian restaurant with wood fired pizza ovens. It is now closed and they are putting in apartments in the location. Very sad, as this was a tradition for many years.

Unfortunately, one of my fave restaurant is no longer on the corner. The building has been torn down for condo development. We all hope they will open for business in another location. :(

It was late and hot and the place we planned on eating at had no air conditioning. That wasn't going to work for me, so we kept on walking. We came across this little gem and were so glad we did. We both had lasagna and it was some of the best I've ever had. The noodles are so light... More

I enjoyed this casual restaurant twice for supper. The service was attentive, the quality of the food excellent (they bake their own bread and make their own pizza dough), the presentation most pleasing, and, it was comfortable. There is an upstairs and a downstairs. It is clean. I would return here anytime I am in PV. I paid cash but... More

This restaurant ranking should indeed by much higher. Not quite sure for the reason it is just at #279. Paolo and his crew always welcome us with open arms. We visit here several times each time we are in PV and we love it all this time. The pizza, pasta, and other dishes are just delicious and at just the... More

Last night four friends and I ate at Espresso Restaurant which we have done for many years and, until now, have always loved the restaurant. We are all full time residents of Puerto Vallarta and love our adopted city and the people. Unfortunately we had a most unpleasant experience at the restaurant and feel compelled to share it with your... More

After walking by espresso for years, we finally stopped in for dinner and had a great dining experience. The service was outstanding. Nothing is rushed so if you want to come for a quick dinner and leave, espresso is not for you. My wife and I split a salad and pizza. The pizza was wonderful having been cook in wood... More

Lots to love about this place that so many don't know about, though it is centrally located in the romantic zone. Ate here twice. Once service was slow. Second time service was outstanding.
