It's a shame that the local Oaxaquenos are reluctant to break from tradition as this is such a fabulous Italian restaurant just off the Zocalo. Walter's pesto is truly one of the best I've tasted...even in Genoa! The staff was lovely, spoke many languages ( Italian, Spanish and English that I know of) and the food was top of the... More

We decided to try this restaurant following the recommendations on TripAdvisor. Being Italian I am always very sceptical when i go to an Italian restaurant abroad. This place was a revelation: service was very good, the armosphere great and food was exactly as you would eat it in a good restaurant in Italy. Also, the owner was very nice to... More

It was a Sunday evening and there was a party in the town square, so we were the 2nd couple in the restaurant. We started by sampling a couple of their wines and ordered the meat and cheese plate appetizer; amazing with the honey dip. They bring us some samples of the classic lasagna...the best lasagna I've ever tasted. Found... More

An authentic taste of Italy tucked away in the heart of Oaxaca, this hidden treasure will leave you wanting more and more. The chef is a great representative of his homeland and truly brings out the best of his food. The waiters were exelent and on one occasion even went to the corner store to get a specific beer for...

Wow!! What a restaurant!! The service was out of this world; what a nice surprise is a country where this is lacking. The waiter went above and beyond to ensure we were happy, and the chef came out personally to say hello. The food... Wow, the food!! Delicious! Not surprising as the chef is from Italy, and you can taste... More

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
