Mexita serves delicious Italian food in a relaxing, yet elegant environment. The service is excellent. We were served an amuse bouche of bruschetta. The melon and prosciutto was very good. They make the mozzarella in house and is served with delicious bread. Pasta courses were well prepared.

We came in for a late lunch, and everything was outrageously delicious! We had cannelloni and a margherita pizza. The owner is really engaged in every aspect of the restaurant, and is also really nice! We may just come back during our short stay in Oaxaca.

This review is long overdue for my wife and I have been patrons of Mexita for years. My wife and I are in the hospitality business with 3 B&B's we run with our family as well as several apartments in downtown Oaxaca. Mexita is always on the top of the list of places to eat when speaking with our new... More

A group of us went here for a meal on our final night in Oaxaca, and to celebrate the birthday of one of our group. The restaurant has a great ambience, and we had about four pizzas between us. The pizzas were great, and the desserts we had (Tiramisu, Profiteroles, and Red Berry Cake) were also very good. Prices are... More

Nice place to come for something NOT Mexican. Loved the wood oven pizzas and fresh arugula salads. Great service and looking forward to returning in October when I want something non Mexican. Got to keep and eye out for it but worth the effort!

As an Italian who has spent a lot of time in Naples, I am very picky with my pizza, however Mexita was like entering the center of Naples. Incredibly authentic Italian food and perfect for a fancy occasion (I went for my birthday). The owner is present, speaking Italian to his coworkers and offering diners a shot of his delicious...

I've been reading that the place is managed by an Italian so (being Italian too) I wanted to try some real Italian pizza after months of Mexican food: not disappointed at all!! The pizza is the real one from Napoli, the best I've found here in Mexico up to now and better of many places in Italy too. Trust me... More

We keep returning to Mexita as we love every thing about it... The food is authentic , delicious and well prepared... The atmosphere is friendly and the owner who seems to always be on the premises, makes you feel welcome. Some restaurants in the City of Oaxaca could really learn from this gentleman... We had amazing Italian dishes as well... More

This is by far the best Italian food in the city. Very fresh, quality ingredients and incredible flavor. We tried two different pasta dishes. Both were spectacular. They bring a complimentary appetizer as well as fresh sourdough bread and an after dinner limoncello which is a perfect finish. Also enjoyed the house wine from Queretero. Victor our server speaks excellent... More

Before I begin, I need to say that the service here was 5 stars. Welcoming, kind, generous and patient are all words I would use to describe the staff at Mexita. This is where my praise ends... I had debated whether or not I should have Italian while in Oaxaca. What, I flew all the way here to have pizza... More
