Good food, service well...

Good tortilla-based honest food. Try the tetelas, worth giving them a a try. The service was not something we can praise. All around, the food was worth it and we would go back!

A number of friends have raved about the speical vegetarian cuisine at Itanoni. We went for an afternoon meal and were not overwhelmed. Although the ingredients are fresh, they seemed bland. The quantity of food was less than I would have liked. Perhaps we ordered items that were not particularly special. Perhaps our expectations were too high. If you are... More

Fabulous unusual cuisine, great service, fun to watch your food being made, amazing value. It is a bit of a walk from centro but you will need it after sampling all their options! Great for me as a celiac!!

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.
