I've been going to walking for over 30 years and this is, bar none, the best Italian restaurant in the city. In fact, it's the best Italian restaurant I've tried in all of Mexico. There are a couple things I really love about this place. 1. The food is fantastic; 2. The owner is very friendly, accommodating, and clearly loves his own food; 3. The space is friendly and comfortable and great for families; 4. The food is fantastic. I thought should repeat that last one. I'll also note that there's a very nice garden sitting area in addition to an indoor space and that the owners's (he's an actual Italian) speaks English should that be something that you need. The menu also changes regularly, which I appreciate greatly when I'm in Oaxaca for months at a time and don't want to always eat the same thing.

This Neapolitan restaurant offers some truly fantastic food at great prices. There's a wood oven for pizza in the courtyard and also a constantly changing menu depending on the season and the owner's whims. But don't always rely on the menu. The owner--an actual Neapolitan--will sometimes cook up something special for you if you ask. And he hand-makes his sausage and pasta and is so excited about his own food that it's impossible not be excited with him. This is a don't miss and serves better food than I've had in any other Italian restaurant, including many in Italy.
