NOTE: The google maps address is WRONG! This restaurant is now located on the Marina boardwalk. We walked all the way to the address listed to find that they had moved to the marina so we had to Uber it all the way there to...another google maps address we found that was ALSO WRONG! Just walk around the marina boardwalk & you'll find it. Cannot believe so many people have reviewed this place & not mentioned this. :( Come on guys! Was it worth over an hour & a half looking for it? Probably not but the food is delicious. The pizza was very good and the spinach ravioli was fresh. The italian brownie was tasty too. Front house service was FANTASTIC, the back of the house not so much but thankfully the front house server came back so we could get the rest of the courses for their nightly special. Great prices!!More

Despite knowing I could get an approximate 10 percent by etc. I initially inquired about their promotion of buying 2 pizzas & getting the third pizza free with how many ingredients are allowed from the owner (Rita) herself . I opted to purchase their lasagna...dinner special with a local beer for $35 pesos and ordered their pizza sandwich to go along with the Mama Rita special pizza to go. That large special pizza cost $265 pesos according to the menu. My food dinner arrived and my lasagna was was too salty for me to eat so after a few bites I asked to to take it home hoping that someone else might enjoy it. The small pizza sandwich came with stale potato chips and definitely was not worth the amount charged. The Mama Rita special pizza came and the cost on the bill was $300 pesos and was told by the waitress when asked that the size of the pizza was a only a medium despite the menu charge for that large special pizza was $265 pesos. Remembering I had asked for one additional ingredient I noticed that I was charged 55 pesos ($3) for 9 small pieces of pepperoni on a medium not a large pizza. The service itself was almost non existent except when I summoned the waitress. The owner Rita visited two other customers and asked "how was their meal" but ignored me. My bill totaled $665 pesos ($33) and I left a $100 peso tip ($5) on top f the bill which was left on the table because after getting my change from $800 pesos the waitress never returned despite she had no other customers needing her service. The cost in relation to the quality and quantity of the food along with the poor service for a first time customer is a reason I do not expect them to succeed in the rather competitive Marina. I was very disappointed.More

It's really good pizza. That's it. It reminded me of a place I'd been into in NY - maybe not exactly the atmosphere, but the pizza sure did. But the atmosphere is just fine. We're on the marina in Puerto Vallarta. 'Chilled out' is the...theme I pick up here. ...except for the tour and activity touts that are persistent in getting you to come and see their options and offer you the very best price, JUST for you. I don't think we can use 'persistent' and 'chilled' in the same context, other than to say 'persistently chilled'. Which is what Mama Rita's is, in the best way. It's thin crust. And really tasty. Nothing extravagant. Just plain tasty and finger-lickin' good. And the staff is nice. Very English friendly and affable. If you're around the marina and up for pizza. I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong here. One heads up - it could take a few minutes longer than you might be accustomed to in getting your pizza. Definitely not quick like Domino's. But I'm fine with that. I'm not in a hurry and I don't want to be while I'm on vacation. Thank you Mama Rita's and looking forward to coming there again.More

Came here for the first time after reading many excellent reviews and we weren’t disappointed! Mama Rita makes awesome, very tasty pizzas and we will definitely go back. She has moved from downtown to this Marina location and if you haven’t been you should check...it out! Good prices too.More

This is by far the best pizza in Puerto Vallarta. I tried it when it was located by Pelicanos, but haven't had the chance since they moved to the Marina although I've been told it is still the best

Our first dining experience at the new Mama Rita’s, on the Marina. Lovely setting. We ordered a margarita pizza with mushroom and onion and ask for a crispy but not burned crust. The pizza was perfect. Mama Rita and her staff are very attentive and...friendly. We enjoyed our dinner and will return. We are not drinkers, but the restaurant does have beer and wine.More

Had a lovely quick bite here during one of the rather busy Market nights on Thursdays. Lovely staff, squeaky clean, full of happy visitors, family groups. We enjoyed a fine, reasonably priced vegetarian pizza. Great crust, great taste, fun atmosphere and speedy, personal service.
