“great place with great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

my family and i went to oaxaca for new years and one of the nights we stayed there, we went to this lovely restaurant wich have great service, and the food was delicious.. the chef was really nice with us too, gave us free dessert.. we love everything in this place.. i highly recomended.. its worth everything.. its not regional food but after a few days of eating food from oaxaca you feel like just eating somewhere else. like this lovely place. the tuna was delicious and the gold fish too.. my mom loved the salad and the carpaccio pretty good too.

“Great alternative to traditional regional cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

After a few days of eating traditional regional food, this place provided a warm atmosphere and great tasting food. The owners are very kind and present at all times.

“Great food, great service and good prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Excellent Italian food. The service was really good, extremely attentive (this being high season-December holidays).
Very cozy and friendly. Great for big families, couples or even to enjoy a meal by yourself.
Must try desserts and pizza!

“Surprised it is #1”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I agree with the other reviews that the restaurant's service was outstanding. Our waiter was attentive and helpful.I would rate service with 5 stars . The location was quiet, comfortable and romantic. However, the food was below average. The meat was overcooked and dry. The pasta plain which isn't always bad but when mixed with little taste leads to disappointment.

“Terrific Cafe, will return again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

After reading about Epicuro on TA, we felt we had to try it. We have been coming to Oaxaca for years, so we are always looking for somewhere new. We weren't disappointed. Great looking spot and very comfortable & bright, and nicely decorated. The owner soon introduced himself and was very gracious and between the waiter and owner, we had a very nice lunch. A fruit and lettuce salad was preceded with a little appetizer - a veggie tart, and both were delicious. We followed with a penne with prawn, zucchini and red onion. Also delicious, but there could have been a couple more prawns. The only hiccup was the coffee machine wasn't turned on and we were in early so we had to wait for coffees. In the meantime, we ordered a panna cotta that was out of this world - the best I have had anywhere, and then they comped the coffees because of the long wait . A very nice luch and judging from the focaccia we tasted in the bread basket, we will be back for very delicious pizza at a later date.
