My husband grew up in Italy and even he loves his place. We ordered Margherita pizza, rigatoni with bechamel (sp?) sauce and gnocchi with ragu sauce. It was all excellent and fresh tastin. We loved that we could take it to go, since we weren't up for a sit down formal dinner. The owner is apparently from Naples so he... More

my wife, daughter and myself were told about this little gem from another Italian restaurant owner from Puerto Escondido, and we were not disappointed but treated to an outstanding taste of Italy. We had a generous portion of a large salad to open, complimentary brushchetta was making the taste buds stand up and salute and then 3 different pizzas was... More

We came here for lunch and arrived right when they opened. We brought our 3-yr-old and 9-month-old with us and sat at a table near the grass. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. They treated our children kindly and allowed our oldest to move around and play. They also spoke English well enough to explain the menu and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our first Italian meal in Oaxaca. The friendly welcome and service along with the delicious fish mains and scrumptious desserts made it a memorable lunch. Our server was delightful and full of interesting tidbits of information about the food and the city. We will be sure to return next winter when we plan to return to this... More

We visiting this restaurant after seeing it was number 2 on Trip Advisor. We made the mistake of going on a Monday when it was closed, but then returned on Tuesday. It was a 30 minute walk from the Zocalo. Instead of a bread basket we received little cheese and tomato brochettes which were amazing - actually the best part... More

WE walked in after a year and the waiter gave me a hug and remembered me. The end each meal with a glass of complimentary Lemoncello and that is reason... More
