Our entire party of five all ordered different entrees and each thought theirs was outstanding. We even indulged in the signature “brownie bomb” and it tasted as good as the masterful presentation. The ambiance was on point with even our name on the tent card made us feel like VIPs.

Food at Pietro’s is always a great option in Cabo! Service is great, perfect ambiance and the daily specials are a must. We tried the Huitlacoche Risotto with Bone Marrow and were excited about new flavors and experimenting new dishes. Caesar Salad was amazing too !! Thanks to everyone at Pietro’s.

Wonderful experience. Went on a Saturday and it was virtually empty. We started by sitting outdoors, but unfortunately had to move inside as mosquitoes love my husband and within 60 seconds he had over 10 bites on his legs. The house band (which is a family consisting of the dad, son, daughter and uncle) is absolutely incredible! Food was very good. I had the short rib which was delicious and my husband ate the poblano chili Wellington. It was very different because it has Gorgonzola cheese, which was a bit strong but still good. We would definitely come back.  Food was very good. I had the short rib which was delicious and my husband ate the Poblano Chile Wellington.

This is our 5th time dining at Agave. We love the food, ambience, and service. But on this evening they missed on all aspects. It was a disappointing meal. Could be a 1 off experience, so we give it another try. We are not ready to give up on the charming place.
