Nice place to come for something NOT Mexican. Loved the wood oven pizzas and fresh arugula salads. Great service and looking forward to returning in October when I want something non Mexican. Got to keep and eye out for it but worth the effort!

As an Italian who has spent a lot of time in Naples, I am very picky with my pizza, however Mexita was like entering the center of Naples. Incredibly authentic Italian food and perfect for a fancy occasion (I went for my birthday). The owner is present, speaking Italian to his coworkers and offering diners a shot of his delicious...

I've been reading that the place is managed by an Italian so (being Italian too) I wanted to try some real Italian pizza after months of Mexican food: not disappointed at all!! The pizza is the real one from Napoli, the best I've found here in Mexico up to now and better of many places in Italy too. Trust me... More

We keep returning to Mexita as we love every thing about it... The food is authentic , delicious and well prepared... The atmosphere is friendly and the owner who seems to always be on the premises, makes you feel welcome. Some restaurants in the City of Oaxaca could really learn from this gentleman... We had amazing Italian dishes as well... More

This is by far the best Italian food in the city. Very fresh, quality ingredients and incredible flavor. We tried two different pasta dishes. Both were spectacular. They bring a complimentary appetizer as well as fresh sourdough bread and an after dinner limoncello which is a perfect finish. Also enjoyed the house wine from Queretero. Victor our server speaks excellent... More

Before I begin, I need to say that the service here was 5 stars. Welcoming, kind, generous and patient are all words I would use to describe the staff at Mexita. This is where my praise ends... I had debated whether or not I should have Italian while in Oaxaca. What, I flew all the way here to have pizza... More

Mexita is a contraction of the words Mexico and Italy, but the Italy aspect is really at the forefront. We ate here based on Tripadvisor recommendations and were not disappointed. At our first visit we had a Margherita pizza con prosciutto cotto. I've eaten pizza in Naples and at Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN) certified establishments and this was every... More

We loved our experience here. The service is good, the owner is there making sure it all runs smoothly and is a lovely italian man. You can see the attention and care he puts into the food, including making his cheese in house and the pastas too. We really enjoyed our pizza and the home made gnocchi. I could tell... More
