Best Margarita of our trip

Enjoyable place, well priced with a friendly welcome and the best margaritas of our trip [and in the interests of research we had a lot !]. The food was OK, but not nearly as authentically Itallian as some trip advisor reports suggest.

If you're looking for a change of palate in Mexico and want some truly delicious Italian food this is the place for you. Everything our group of 4 adults and 4 children (under the age of 4!) tried was delicious. What made this evening extra special for us, besides of course our company, was the service we received. The entire... More

We went here, like a lot of others did, because of the great reviews. And, like those great reviews, they were right! Our waiter was Juan Carlos, J.C. as he said to call him, and he spoke English very well. We came there with our 3-year-old and 9-month-old. Our children were crazy but it didn't bother anyone. In fact, J.C.... More

WE had an excellent meal with great service...and the prices were reasonable too. A bit hard to find and was very quiet when we were there but it filled up as the evening went along. Do not miss this spot

We had comida at about 3 PM and each started with a beverage and they were excellent. We shared an order of an exotic salad and the half portions were large and wonderful. The pasts entrees were exceptionally good....lasagna and small potato based pasts. Will definitely return.

Great TripAdvisor reviews brought us here. The map location on the TA app was off but the address is correct. Great pizza, decoration and service...just what we needed after walking Monte Alban and the artisan village of Atzompa. We had the Cuatro Estaciones (4 stations) pizza at the suggestion of the waiter. Mozzarella, mushrooms olives, artichoke hearts and prosciutto. Very... More

We had the pizza exotica with pinneapple and strawberries and we all loved it, you should definitely try it! Service was also very good which is something we have had difficulty finding in Oaxaca.

Excellent in every way: food, service, ambience, friendly waitstaff. English/Spanish speaking staff made selection and requests pleasant (for a learning-to-speak Spanish traveler). One of the best pestos I've ever tasted.

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
