This fancy restaurant ran by Italians in Oaxaca is absolutely worth a try. It is located in the city centre, nearby the main street and offers mainly italian dishes and some mexican specialties. The owner is from Genova and absolutely kind and friendly. He does like to have a chat with customers, especially italians and tell about his life in... More

We ate here based on TA reviews and it was even better than the reviews we read. The space the restaurant occupies is gorgeous! It's a large open space with a retractable roof. We didn't partake of the roof deck because the interior was so beautiful. Juan was our waiter and what a gem! He spoke near-perfect English and has... More

This amazing Italian restaurant isn't your mom's home cooking; but rather it is a very special neighborhood culinary experience which started with the warm welcome and consistently dependable service throughout the meal. One person in our group ordered the fresh Mahi-Mahi with a delicious slow cooked tomato olive sauce on the side. Thank goodness the chef honored the fish by... More

If you're looking for some good Italian food here in Oaxaca, this place is a must! My family and I came here looking forward to eating something other than Mexican food and we loved it. We all ordered different plates including pasta, pizza, a lasagna and a salad, and every one of the dishes was delicious. The desserts were to... More

Cafe Bistrot Epicuro is a real Italian treat in Oaxaca. My wife and I live in the San Francisco bay area and have access to great Italian food and our two dinners were equal to some of finest we have experienced at home. After living in Oaxaca for over 3 months, our major disappointment was in not discovering this fine... More

Went here today after wanting to eat something different than Mexican. Great restaurant: nice food, cute little patio and very nice waiter. I had the lasagne and my boyfriend had the ravioli. They were both very delicious and not expensive (both around 150 pesos). To top it off we got a free dessert! Would really recommend this place!

I am still dreaming about my favourite pizza ever... I still remember the shine of my girlfriends eyes, when she take a first bite of her best revioli ever. Please do not miss this Restaurant. Waiter was excellent, knowledgeable and nice man, he surprised us with free desert :)

The service was kind, knowledgeable, and attentive. We had a delicious appetizer of garlic eggplant. My girlfriend had a caprese salad which she orders all... More
