I had been told that the pizza here was fabulous. I had the margherita with cheese and prosciutto. It was very good, likely the best in Oaxaca, but I've only tried a couple other local pizza joints. There's no questioning the restaurant's popularity in spite...More

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!
