I think I died and went to heaven after eating here with my wife the other night. We had the salad mixta, pizza, a good wine from Baja and a dessert of some type of ice cream pie with large chunks of chocolate. wow! Our waiter, Charlie, was attentive, friendly and just a great guy. Don't miss eating here when... More

This is a fine dining but friendly and not too formal Italian restaurant. The high quality Italian food was real because the chef is Italian. The Colombian young woman owner engaged us in interesting conversation. The waiter was attentive and gave good advice. Both speak English fluently. Importantly, the waiter did not keep us waiting for the check, as so... More

I went here for dinner and the service was really really good. Very attentive and nice. We had bruschetta caprese, ñoqui bolognesa and pesto linguine. All good even though portions were not very big, as they usually are in Mexico. They have a good and varied wine menu. Panacotta could be better, but still tasty. After ordering the bill we... More

Our family of four had dinner here tonight, and, all I can say is WOW. It was honestly some of the best food I have ever eaten. Like many, after three days of delicious Oaxacan cuisine, we decided to try something different and my daughter craved Italian. I'm so glad we gave it a try. They started us out with... More

Friends recommended this new restaurant and it is indeed very good -- the best lasagna we ever had. The service was very good but the waiter made one mistake which is why I won't go back. Our bill was 900 pesos but we put in 1200 so we could get some change. The waiter never returned with our change and... More

Thrilled to find this excellent authentic Italian restaurant around the corner, which we did, and we will return! Service, food, atmosphere, choices all superb. Semi-freddo (semi fria on menu) was the perfect ending. Fond memories d'Italia da molti anni fa...

We looked for a break of all the local Mexican food - and found it! This is a great place, great food (Pasta, Pizza, Meat, Fish), great service. Only a few blocks from the Zocalo. The owners are Italien, so they know their job. They even have a good Cava 😀 and service speaks good English. Also good for families.

Stopped in for the mid-afternoon meal. Starving! Problem solved. I enjoyed a beautiful salad with seafood -- exquisite, fine flavors elegantly come together in perfection on a plate. Next came a gorgeous layered eggplant dish, as lovingly and artfully prepared as the salad. The diner next to me was equally pleased with her fish entree, murmuring with happiness at each... More

We had a family meal last week and really enjoyed the experience. It was our first trip to Oaxaca and we would highly rate the city too. We went through the tents of the teachers on the way there but it was perfectly easy. Delicious pastas and deadly pizzas were the order of the evening. Great atmosphere with a tea... More
