“Great Pizza in Oaxaca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Lovely, intimate restaurant in el centro area. Complete Italian menu and wine list. We had pizza midday. The preparation and presentation was great. Crust was hand-made and delicious. High quality ingredients. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend for value and quality. They also appear to have a second location closer to zocalo.

“Best Pizza in Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

This place is very expensive (even by US standards!) but it's by far the best pizza in the city. Thin crust, fresh ingredients, and all the wine you can ask for.

“Average food, expensive, slow servce”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

This last week we made the mistake of eating at this diner. We were a group of several persons and ordered various items. The brochetta was around 80 pesos and consisted of some chopped tomato on toast--small serving, not flavorful. Their pizzas are very thin crusted. If you have tried to eat a thin crust pizza that arrives a bit on the soggy side you can imagine how it was. The pizzas were on the small side and they were priced from 150 pesos to 250 pesos. The pitcher of Claricot was 250 pesos and the quality was average.
Overall I left with a feeling that I had been overcharged for a mediocre meal.
On the plus side the atmosphere is pleasing but not so pleasing that it makes up for the other shortcomings.

“Good food, a little on the pricey side.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

The small setting of the Vieja Lira on Pino Suarez is nice, very bistro style.

The service was very attentive and the food (pasta, pizza) good, even though the pizza dough did not have enough salt.

The price for three was okay, but compared to other more upscale restaurants a little bit on the high side.

I'll definitely eat there again, but skip the 100 MXN cheese cake for dessert.
