i enjoyed Itanoni a lot after being in oaxaca for a couple of weeks. My other restaurant meals seemed to be either heavy on sauces, fancy new twists on traditional dishes, Market stands or basic taco houses. At Itanoni, the meal felt honest and wholesome. just saying the dishes are tortilla based doesn't do it justice. There are three or... More

Mexico has a whole taxonomy of tortillas and the various dishes that can be made from them by different fillings, thickness and origami... Itanoni specialises in 'tetelas', large tortillas folded in quarters around the filling. The tortillas are made on site (always a criterion of good Mexican food: non-industrial tortillas) and you can watch the chefs in action at the... More

Just back from four days in Oaxaca. Went to a few of the highly rated fancier places. All were good but frankly no better or more interesting than the sort of fare on can find in most large American cities. Itanoni felt and tasted truly different and special. Fantastic flavors. Great heirloom corn tortillas. Large and varied menu. Great atmosphere.... More

Oaxaca is full of terrific food, from carne asada at the mercado to upscale takes on traditional cuisine. I ate a lot, and I enjoyed it a lot. But the single tastiest thing I had during my entire visit was a tetela filled with crema, cheese from Chiapas and ground chicharron. And while the fillings were very good, it was... More

What they are doing at Itanoni with ancient grains is exciting and our meal was delicious. Service was not great -- one cup of coffee arrived and it took about 30 minutes for the other cup that was ordered at the same time. They food is so interesting though that I would look past the service and go again.

This small restaurant used to be one of favorites places for the masa is really good for making their signature platers, but the quality has gone done over the last several months. Today was the last time for me. This establishment prides itself on its masa being unique and fresh, even the way they prepare their dishes is off limits... More

Complicated artsy menu that even the servers don't understand, but the dishes are tasty. My favorite is taco de costilla, but everything is good, except the watery coffee! Go for the chocolate de leche instead. The quality has deteriorated recently, as has the service, but still a good place for traditional Oaxacan breakfast fare.

Inexpensive and varied menu. French pressed coffee was also very good. I would return to this cute neighborhood place.

Using corn meal from local small farms the flavor stands out.. every delicious meal has uses maza. These include everything from tacos ,tamales, chalupas and much more. All the meals are prepared on a comal ..by hand....which is part to of the show.!!!
