We came here w/a family of 4 to enjoy a change from the (excellent) Mexican food we'd had for a few days. TripAdvisor sold us on the place, and we ended up well taken care of. The Linguine di Mare was terrific - a light oil-based sauce w/very fresh seafood, not too large a serving, a tad salty but intensely flavored. My teen daughter had an excellent, light, grilled shrimp and calamari w/vegetables, that she loved. Onion soup was very good; we've had better only in French restaurants. We had a pizza w/delicious cheese, although the crust was a little soft. The panna cotta and a torte were big hits. The wine list was extensive, and the pinot grigio was quite good. The price was similar to any top-quality restaurant in the city, so no complaint there. The service was professional. One of the owners came out and we had an extended conversation, making us feel like guests and not just customers. All in all, a very successful meal and evening, and my teenage daughter is already campaigning to return!

In an unassuming location south east of the Zocolo we went to Cafe Bistrot Epicuro on a quiet sunday lunchtime. I had an authentic vitello tonnato starter (delicious), while my other half had a fresh Mediterranean salad. We both then had the wonderfully rich and creamy lasagne, and shared a very good not too heavy tiramisu for pud. Great coffee too - and the friendly Chef came out of the kitchen after our meal to have a chat. Would certainly recommend this authentic Italian.

We went to epicuro to share a simple italian meal, pizza and pasta. The food met our expectations, the environment is pleasant, but the price seems too high.

What a great place! The reviews were spot on. The two Italian cousins who own and run this place along with their staff are as good as it gets. They made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in. Don't be put off if there aren't always many people inside as one reviewer wrote. The food is still fresh, well prepared and served with great hospitality.

Cafe Bistrot Epicuro was touted as one of the best in Oaxaca and did not disappoint. The setting was simple yet elegant, the food fresh and delicious and the service pleasant, prompt and efficient. Our waitress, Ms. Laura Gijon deserves special mention for a job well done. We ordered several of the options available including the pizzas, pasta and salads and ended the meal with a memorable tiramisu. In our week in Oaxaca, after having sampled several very good restaurants, this one stood head and shoulders above the rest.
