My family and I go to Invita at least once every time we are in Cabo, and often more than once. The service is spectacular and I have yet to try a dish I did not like. Their homemade pasta makes Invita a nice change from all the other Mexican style restaurants in Cabo. After days of tortillas and guacamole... More

Thank you very much for your raving comments, we love returning In Vita fans!!

Away from the more touristy areas of Cabo. Had a great Jazz Saxophone musician playing providing a nice ambiance for the dinner setting. Ismael was our waiter and was great at steering us to their best dishes. I had the seared Tuna with house made pasta and red sauce and my wife had the octopus which was outstanding! The mussel...

Mucho amore! Fantastic comments and for sure the waiters appreciate your comments too. Many guests say Italian in CABO? Of course take a break from the tacos and more tacos. You can always try our pasta Serrano (not on the menu but a spicy pasta for heat lovers. ) Vamanos a Invita Bistro! More

Once each trip we find time to enjoy great Italian seafood here. The grilled pulpo never disappoints from the flashy steaming garlic sauce splashed on the searing fahita cast iron pan to the just done veggies...one of the very best dishes to come for. The pasta dishes are equally good and you won't find a better wine selection of Mexican... More

Grazie! Grazie! Always great having return guests and even better hearing that you are still a fan. Grilled octopus is a treat for many. It always turns guests heads to the sizzle. A traditional Italian treat. From gnocchi on Thirsdays (yes Thirsdays for the wine) to the daily main courses like the filet there is something for everyone. See you... More

This place looked cute and the menu offered more choices than many Italian restaurants in the area. Turns out the owner is from Rome. Great pasta carbonara and insalata mista. So happy we branched out beyond Romeo y Julieta.

My wife and I shared the signature lasanga dish and the Mediterranean salad. Excellent and more than enough for two. The service provided by Jasiel was excellent as well as the attention provided by other staff members including the manager David. Be sure to make a reservation as this is a small but very popular restaurant.

Thanks for loving La Nonna's recipe from her kitchen in Roma. Its traditional. Love that bechamel. David has been with us for years and many recognize him from years of Italian restaurant fame. Jasiel is young and hungry to be the best he can be. Tries very hard and making lots of guests happy. Thanks for coming in!! More

On the advice of several locals, we chose Invita for our anniversary dinner. From the time we walked up to the time we left, we were treated like royalty.
