“Very nice and well done hand made crust pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Nice restaurant, clean, good attitude. The waiters are efficient as the cook (very hard to find in Oaxaca, where the restaurants decide how much time you're going to spend in a meal, it can take 2 to 3 hours!!!). The pizza we ordered had thin crunchy crust, real tomate, and good ingredients. The wines were good to.

“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.
