We were invited to dinner by Oaxacan friends who told us that this was supposedly a good “pizzeria”. Our first reaction was OMG! Not another one! We entered the restaurant and began talking to the father and son and any doubts were soon dispelled. Their pasta is homemade and perfectly prepared; their mozzarella is as close to the best Naples has to offer as you can possibly get in Mexico( If only water buffalo could live here). My wife ordered spaghetti alle vongole (really fresh clams and mussels) and I asked the son to make me a Pizza Margherita using the nearby wood fired oven.
The perfect dinner ended with their own Limoncello. The Mexican limes are unique and the liqueur reflected it. A recording by Caruso or Pavarotti in the background would have completed the evening.
COMMENTS IN ITALIAN:
Che dire? Napoletani veraci qui a Oaxaca, pasta fatta in casa preparata alla perfezione; mozzarella Fior di Latte squisita, una Margherita fatta al forno di legna da un autentico maestro pizzaiolo, Limoncello fatto cogli incomparabili limoni messicani; che bella cosa………a Oaxaca!
