Mexita serves delicious Italian food in a relaxing, yet elegant environment. The service is excellent. We were served an amuse bouche of bruschetta. The melon and prosciutto was very good. They make the mozzarella in house and is served with delicious bread. Pasta courses were well prepared.

We came in for a late lunch, and everything was outrageously delicious! We had cannelloni and a margherita pizza. The owner is really engaged in every aspect of the restaurant, and is also really nice! We may just come back during our short stay in Oaxaca.

This review is long overdue for my wife and I have been patrons of Mexita for years.
My wife and I are in the hospitality business with 3 B&B's we run with our family as well as several apartments in downtown Oaxaca. Mexita is always on the top of the list of places to eat when speaking with our new guest. It is the only place to go to with friends visiting from out of town who are in the mood for Italian.
Enrique has done a fabulous job in creating his venue and his dishes. For those who do not know he make his own mozzarella, pizza dough and sauce, wine, lemoncello and most of his pasta. He is paralytically proud of his seafood that he has brought in specail.
We have never been disappointed with the the dning experience either as a couple or in a group of 14. The food is always fresh and hot, presented beautifully and timely, and most important, always delicious.
So, if you happen to be in the mood for Italian while in Oaxaca, look no further than Mexita. Mangiare bene!!!!

A group of us went here for a meal on our final night in Oaxaca, and to celebrate the birthday of one of our group. The restaurant has a great ambience, and we had about four pizzas between us. The pizzas were great, and the desserts we had (Tiramisu, Profiteroles, and Red Berry Cake) were also very good.
Prices are pretty high here, but the food was excellent, and the pizzas were cooked in a proper pizza oven in front of you.
As we were celebrating a birthday, the restaurant also kindly put a candle on one of the desserts to help us with the celebration, which I thought was a nice touch. Service was very good and attentive.

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!
