Italian Menu

Panzanela Salad

The mere mention of Italian food conjures up very specific images, dishes and aromas. While the stereotypical Italian restaurant in America and pretty much any country outside of Italy, usually serves up plates of hot pasta with tomato or cream-based sauces or a big slice of pizza. This is far from true Italian cuisine, which encompasses a wide variety of cooking styles and tastes. The differences in Italian cooking really shows up between the northern and southern parts of the country. Each region has its own traditions that reflect the deep history and culture of that area. 

You have a chance to sample innovative Italian food during the Summer Sizzle Menu at Daiquiri Dick's restaurant in sunny Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Every week visit a different country and July 27 to August 8, 2016, taly is the chosen culinary destination.

There are three courses for $350 pesos per person and choices for each course or you can order your favorite appetizer, entrée or dessert a la carte. There is also an extensive wine list that you can pair your meal, ask your waiter for details.

Executive Chef, Ignacio Uribe, Chef de Cuisine, Hugo Mejia and Sous Chef, Rogelio Garcia have come up with some great dishes and dinner is served from 5 to 10:30pm.
