I ducked in to La Matatena to do my Spanish school homework and escape the sun and sidewalks for a bit. I was not disappointed. I had agua fresca, a complimentary jicama appetizer, fresh salad and tasty pizza for a very reasonable price, and the staff was more than willing to help with my Spanglish. I very highly recommend the restaurant and very much look forward to going back!

Needed a break from Mexican cuisine, and being tired from a hard day's touring, something easy and reasonable. We found it at the modest La Matatena Pizzeria, It wasn't Naples, but it was very good, especially with a few local beers. And unlike Naples, lots of choices of fresh ingredients and a ready smile and congenial chitchat with the chief chef and bottle washer. while we all kept a wary eye on his toddeling toddler. A pleasant evening.

We walked around Oaxaca in the scorching heat having dismissed two other Italian restaurants. This was our last hope! We were delighted to find a chic little restaurant. The food was excellent and the service and attention to detail was outstanding. We had a wonderful time here and would thoroughly recommend it. Good prices too!

The margarita and pepperoni pizzas were both outstanding. They used fresh ingredients and the pizzas were as good as any pizzas that we had during our month in Italy. Happily, the service was as great as the pizza. We will definitely go back.
