    Small Italian place - down a bit from the Zoccolo. Unassuming decor - but worked just fine. The surprise was how good the food was - had the Caprese and it was great! I also had a spaghetti americana that was very good. Wife had the lasagna, which had good flavor, but could have been hotter. Wine we ordered was very good, and a good value. Owner was overseeing things during the dinner. Reccomend this place for a break from all the great Oaxacan food you'll be enjoying during your visit!

    delightful neighborhood restaurant with a charming decor. Service was impecable and my server especially. Food was delicious; but the bread basket could have had warm/hot breads vs cold ones.

    Desde que llegamos nos recibió muy amable la esposa del chef y nos atendieron de primera. Nos dieron cortesía de berenjenas deliciosas y todos los platillos que pedimos estuvieron espectaculares. Al final el chef italiano fue a presentarse y nos pidió nuestra opinión acerca de la comida y los platillos. Ambiente agradable, seguro, limpio y con sana distancia.

    Chef/owner is from Genoa,Italy. Very fresh ingredients, house made lasagna pasta that was beautifully thin. Delicious desserts. Friendly service. A nice change of pace when you need a break from the moles.

    Arrived early and got to pick our own table which was good as didn’t like some of the placings. Ordered a cocktail each and never felt rushed to order. Ordered starters and asked for a good 10 mins wait before serving main course & this was adhered to. The food was fab and we finished off with limoncello and coffee. Lovely restaurant inside and the staff were fantastic. We were served by a Colombian guy who was attentive but never over attentive. We had a perfect night

    We were the first one's in the restaurant and after placing our drink orders it was slow going. As the restaurant filled up it seemed everyone else became more important and we were ignored. We had to ask several times when would we get our drinks! Finally they came and they took our dinner order. The penne pasta with shrimp was the best of the 4 meals ordered. On a side note, the waiters made a very bad judgement call. One table of 2 people asked for the TV to be put on so they could watch a wrestling match. All the tables around us objected and we all requested the TV be turned off. All they did was change the channel to yet another annoying and distracting station. This is supposed to be a notch below fine dining, not a sports bar. Shame on them. We will not return and cannot recommend this restaurant.

    Wait staff was extremely helpful and knowledgable. Even made recommendation, without being offensive, that I get the osobuco instead of the rack of lamb because it Has more meat. Looking at me it was clear I like my protein. (I’m 6”4, 20”lb). But it wasn’t offensive his to suggested I order something heartier.

    This is a great Italian restaurant in the heart of Oaxaca. Food and service are great. The only problem we had was that the restaurant was a bit warm and even the fan didn’t help much.

    Much to my surprise, this Italian restaurant in downtown Oaxaca served what was probably the best Italian meal we've ever had outside of Italy! We will certainly try to return before we leave town and head back to the US.

    Nos arruinaron la cena. Si trabajan por medio de opentable deberían respetar los horarios que ofrecen y no modificarlos cuando ellos quieran. PÉSIMA atención del dueño, debe de tener cuidado, se puso muy grosero y prepotente con nosotros, no lo recomiendo.

    We were a table of 6 with diverse food preferences. The staff was amazing in assuring that each person was satisfied. They knew we were celebrating and made sure everything was perfect. The food was excellent. The pulpo was fresh, the duck perfectly done, and the wine list was complimentary. We will be going back.
