It is hard to open a restaurant in Oaxaca, specially if you are not from Oaxaca, A restaurant in Oaxaca has to be excellent in order to survive. Mexita is the best Italian restaurant at the moment. They make their own Ricotta cheese, their house wine, their own limoncello and everything is prepared at the moment. I strongly recommend it,... More

We arrived soon after the 2pm opening, were seated near the kitchen(we chose the table). The waiter took our order in Spanish, although I did notice they had some English speakers available. We ordered a pizza, while we waited the owner(I assume) brought out bruschetta on the house. Pizza was neopolitan style, made with in-house made proscuitto, mozzarella, dough and... More

Went here with a friend, and after looking for it for almost half an hour (or more), weren't we pleased by it?! Pizza was delicious, however, there was a little miscommunication since we didn't speak Spanish, and they didn't speak English very well. We did order lasagna too, and after our pizza, we waited for half an hour for the... More

Stumbled on this in 2013. Brought a group back to Oaxaca this year...eating here was high on the list. But they'd moved! Current map on Tripadvisor has not caught up with correct address given here. Our taxi driver had a tough time finding it...is on a side street. Much larger space, but well away from Centro. Three or four blocks... More

This is our second time around, now during the Guelaguetza weekend! A WONDERFUL WONDERFUL experience all around. We had amazing pizza, prepared next to us in a wood-fire oven, the prosciutto was simply perfect (soft, non chewy, and perfectly salty). We had a panna cotta for dessert, which thought the 4 of us would share and decided on after tasting... More

I went to Mexita with my girlfriend and we had a really great dinner. The pizza was so good! Mains were approx 180 pesos so it was a splurge for us backpackers but thoroughly worth it. Victor was the perfect waiter! We would recommend the steak plus the tiramisu as well.. Delicious.

Although there are many quality restaurants in Oaxaca, if you are looking for something other than Mexican cuisine, this is the place. Mexita is a family-owned and operated Italian restaurant and is the real deal. The food is homemade and delicious. Besides pizza, pasta, etc., the restaurant also serves very tender, flavorful steaks cooked to perfection. The tiramisu is the... More

I stopped here because it was near my hotel and looked fairly quiet and very clean. I was unprepared for the delicate Italian pizza they served, with tender crust and the finest of toppings in just the right quantity. Add a very decent house red wine and an attentive wait staff (and chef) and there is nothing missing for a... More
