One of Our Best Meals in Oaxaca

Thank you fellow travelers for recommending this lovely little place - I had the eggplant parmesan and my hubby had a seafood pasta. Service was attentive and friendly - Highly recommend this!

We went to the restaurant based on other Trip Advisor reviews and we are definitely glad we did! While the restaurant is a bit off the beaten path, it is infinitely walkable from any of the hotels near the Zocalo. The space itself has an open feel and is nicely, if simply decorated. Our server (Juan Carlos -- King of... More

We found this place just wandering along the street and look for a snack/light dinner. I had the entrée eggplant dish (like a lasagna with vegetables, I've forgotten the name), and my companion had the shrimp pasta. Both were very fresh and delicious. Along with two mineral waters and one dessert, the bill came to MX$425. The service was exceptional... More

We' ve been to Oaxaca several times and I knew it was difficult to find a good restaurant for Christmas Eve when most of the Mexican places close early. Found this on T A and called in to check it out one lunch time . Had the most delicious crispy salad and went back for more in the evening. Then... More

Service was fantastic. Ambience and decor very nice also. The food was reasonable, but very overpriced. I had comparable pizza the day before for half the price.

This restaurant is a little off the beaten path -- tho it is only 3-4 blocks from the Zocalo. The menu combines Italian and Oaxacan. I opted for the Italian side of the menu -- the pizza is good, but the chef really has a feel for cooking meat. They have really good steak, and I had the best grilled... More

After a week of great Oaxacan food we needed a change of pace and some good pizza. We found what we were craving at Bistrot Epicuro. The complimentary eggplant appetizer was a very nice start and unique along with the fresh breads. We chose the vegetarian pizza along with a very good wine ( wine list seemed very good). The...

Let me start by saying the service at this restaurant was good, attentive and friendly. The real let down was the food. I ordered to lasagne, which was tasty but nothing special. I think my my home made lasagne is probably better. My wife ordered a Waygu steak. After having read so many reviews about this restaurant and the quality... More

Delicious food and exceptional service. From the free entree to the lovely wine and classic italian mains, this restaurant delivered. We had lasagne, seafood spaghetti and a chocolate tart and it all tasted fabulous. Service was immaculate. one of the best italian meals I have had, in or out of Italy.

After nearly two weeks in Mexico we were in the mood for Italian and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It was fairly easy to find just a couple of blocks off the Zocolo. We went rather early on a Saturday night and it was very slow, which was a shame because everything we had was very good. Our waiter... More
