Went for lunch on a Friday. There was one waitress who covers all tables and acts as a bartender. There were only three tables but took about 30 minutes between her visits. They have a great drink menu and tried a couple of them and they were very good and creative. They also have some craft beers including Baja Brewing. For those reasons they hit two stars instead of 1. We ordered a charcuterie plate for starters which was good. We ordered two pasta plates. One with the vodka and cream sauce. The sauce was ok. We added spicy sausage and mussels. The sauce was lacking a little flavor but was ok. Issue was the spaghetti was overcooked. The second pasta was some Rigatoni with a tomato sauce. The sauce was really watery and had no flavor. We added onion and something else. Again the pasta was way overcooked. The table service was horrible. The waitress was nice and fairly attentive but she was always elsewhere and not tending to our table. We were very disappointed in the food and service. The drinks were very good. They need more help there and the ability to cook pasta correctly which is. It too much to ask for a pasta place...Dear John,Thanks for sharing your comments on Tripadvisor, we are happy you liked our drinks! and also we have take note with your observations regarding the service and the kitchen, we will pass them to our chef to take actions on this matter. We hope you can give us a second chance and see by yourself that this is not ussual in our serviceWarm Regards,MACCA

We dined at La Forchetta again during this trip to San Jose del Cabo and couldn't have been happier. The food is always exceptional and the presentation is perfect. We brought another couple with us to Cabo this time and raved about La Forchetta so had to take them. We all loved everything we had. The best part is always the chocolate dome dessert, which melts away at your table.Thanks Steve, we love having you every time you come to Cabo, we always welcome returning happy customers. And of course our famous esfera di cioccolato is a must, glad you enjoyed it so much. See you next time you are in Cabo.Pablo

Pan Di Bacco Merkado

Brings a much needed concept to the restaurant scene offerering a repertoire of inspiring Neapolitan recipes.

Reviewed By ejeffe

Located in El Merkado on the main highway between San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, El Merkado is packed full of great little food spots but Pan do Bacco was our favourite. Great coffee, fabulous breakfasts and the most delicious little vanilla cookies! If you enter from the interior courtyard it is signed as a coffee shop but it’s the same place. Try the Panino or the breakfast pizza both are awesome. We’ve been here twice this week and will be back.
