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

The lasagne was fantastic and anything with pesto.....thumbs up. Good bread and they make a good martini! Modern and cozy atmosphere, wonderful host and got a big hello... 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 :)

After two months of typical Oaxacan meals on the coast my girlfriend and I were in need of a good meal. We were very satisfied with our experience and the food at Cafe Bistrot Epicuro. 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

If you are on a limited stay in Oaxaca, I would recommend looking further down on this list for where to eat. I do not believe this is the exceptional restaurant suggested by these reviews. We ordered several dishes. They were very good. However, the portions were so small I thought at first they were half portions. And the price... More

We stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant in the heart of Oaxaca, and thoroughly enjoyed a late lunch. The service was friendly and charming, and the food was awesome. Thoroughly enjoyed the eggplant appetizer, seafood pasta, and complementary dessert. Gorgeous decor, vibrant and tranquil at the same time.

This was an unexpected surprise. The atmosphere was lovely, though no windows to the outside. I had an eggplant parmesean, and my partner had lasagna. Very tasty. The service was very good, if a bit pretentious. The wines were excellent. It was a lovely meal, though definitely on the high end of the scale for Oaxaca.
