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

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
