The Best Italian Restaurants In Acapulco, Mexico

Lauren Cocking

Acapulco is a bustling and popular tourist destination on the south coast of Mexico. Even with strong competition from recent Mexican holiday resort favorites such as Cancún and the indulgent and expensive Los Cabos, a favorite among celebrities, Acapulco still retains its charm and popularity. However, if you fancy a taste of Italy while in Mexican paradise, read on for our guide to the best pizzas and pastas in Acapulco.


1. Becco al Mare

Restaurant, Italian, Seafood, Mediterranean, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free

Modern, elegant, and casual, Becco al Mare is a beautifully designed restaurant, worth a visit for its architectural merits alone. However, if you’re more interested in the food, the contemporary Italian menu won’t disappoint either, as it boasts only the highest quality ingredients and a range of fifteen Italian oils. You must take advantage of the extensive and predominantly Italian wine list too, but if you’re unsure of what to go for, the in-house sommelier is on hand to help. This is also one to visit if you want to dine with a spectacular view of Acapulco.

2. Napoli

Restaurant, Italian

Moving away from pizza now, Napoli is a quaint restaurant with excellent pastas and stand-out gnocchi dishes. Looks can be deceiving and you may initially be deterred by the simple appearance of this restaurant and its tucked away location, however it really is worth dining here. This would be an excellent option for those seeking a relaxed evening and a creamy carbonara pasta, given the outdoor seating options, attentive wait staff, and delicious dishes. Be sure not to wander past it accidentally and don’t forget to try the exceptional gnocchi.
