We've talked about the best tacos and the best steaks in town, but today we're talking about the best Italian restaurants around.
Open daily from 5 pm to 11 pm.
This is a classic. For years, if we're going to an Italian place, we're coming here. Located pretty close to downtown, they're about half a block away from the Amelia Wilkens Plaza. Start your meal off with a glass of wine, Funghi Trifolati (Sautéed mushrooms with garlic, red pepper, and white wine,) and a Bruschetta, all for the center of the table. Then take your pick from mouthwatering pasta, lasagna, ravioli, cannelloni, gnocchi, pizzas, steaks, chicken, or fish. And wrap it up with a sweet treat, tiramisu, gelato, flan, or Paradiso di Choccolato.
Open from Monday to Saturday from 11 am to 10 pm and Sundays from 4 pm to 10 pm.
"The history of the Galluzzo family originates in a small town near Palermo, Sicily. But the modern story takes place in Portland, Oregon, and Cabo San Lucas, México, where the family has been in the food business for over 100 years, with each successive generation building upon the achievements of the ones that came before." They offer a casually elegant setting for a delicious Italian meal. They have two restaurants, one in Oregon and one in Cabo, but we're lucky to have fresh seafood that makes their Cabo menu a bit special.
Romeo & Julieta
Open from Monday to Saturday from 4 pm to 11 pm and Sundays from 2 pm to 10 pm.
Established in the early 1980's, this was one of the first restaurants in Cabo San Lucas. Their Executive Chef, Matias Forte, was born in Italy and received his training in Germany. He has an inclination to healthy food that is good for you, so you can enjoy your meal knowing it's not just cards and cheese; there is actual care and attention put into every dish. The building itself has undergone some changes in the last decade or so. It used to be a hole in the wall with a patio, but now it has a grand entrance and stands its ground. "Patterned after a hideaway in Tuscany, from the arched entrance to the many alcoves and separate dining rooms, comfortable upholstered chairs, exposed rock walls, and vaulted brick ceilings add to the charm and character."
Trattoria Da Pietro
Open from Monday to Saturday from 4 pm to 11 pm and Sundays from 2 pm to 9 pm.
The restaurant is a bit more modern than the rest, but it still has an authentic Italian flavor to it. They're known for their rich food, delicious desserts, and excellent service from their knowledgeable staff. Ask them about their daily specials! They also have live music every once in a while, so check out their social media to keep up with that.
If you give any of them a try, share your experience with us! We'd love to know who you like the best.
