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

Victor our waiter greeted us in an extremely friendly and professional manner and ensured our entire dining experience was the best it could be. We had the the Basil, tomato and mozzarella salad and the calabrize pizza. Both were exquisite, the pizza flavoursome and fragrant on light, fresh dough base without being greasy at all. Another bonus, the beers were... More

The service was wonderful and the food "superb". I had Pizza and my husband had pasta with sausage; both were absolutely delicious, and the wine from... More

We have visited Oaxaca every winter for 2-3 months for the last 5 or 6 years. Oaxaca has some of the best food you'll come across and there are several very good Italian restaurants. Mexita has recently moved (not sure the exact date but I believe in the last few years) from a location North of the downtown core. It... More

Sorry folks, but we have tried this restaurant twice and really feel it is totally overrated! The first time we visited, we were welcomed by the owner and made to feel very welcome. We ordered our food and three of the four of us received it in a timely manner. Some of us tried to wait for the third meal... More

Having been raised in an Italian family, I can only say positive things about this place. For those of you who love Oaxacan food, this is a wonderful break. If you are like me and a little Oaxacan food goes a long way, then try this. We went twice in one week, loved the strozzapreti alla siciliana, Margarita pizza, cannelloni,... More

A wonderful meal, but very expensive for Oaxaca and I choose to pay by credit card and they added IVA when you pay by credit card and no IVA when paid by cash. My teenage daughter and I had no alcohol , shared a salad, each had a main plate and shared a dessert and our bill was over 700... More

We enjoyed this place immensely. The singer was very present and very charming. Homemade everything from wine and pizza to bread and pasta. Excellent service. Very nice atmosphere. We ate in court yard so we could watch the pizza making. Great fun.
