I read about this place online and decided to try it for a change of pace from all the mole restaurants. The restaurant is located about 10 minutes by taxi from the center of town (it's a fairly long, indirect walk, so better to hail a cab for this place). It's located on the other side of town, in a very quiet area. The restaurant itself is modern and clean and suitable for families or couples on a romantic night out. Most of the pastas on the menu are homemade. I had prosciutto and mozzarella and then pasta with calamari in a tomato sauce--all delicious. The breads are also homemade, and the pizzas are cooked in a wood-burning oven. The staff are friendly and very attentive. Highly recommend if you want good homemade Italian food in Oaxaca.

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 of its priciness. I visited at 3:30 on a Friday afternoon and most of the tables were occupied. (I'll update this review after I return to taste the pasta.)

We ate late on a Sunday evening and ordered the prosciutto and cheese platter and their house wine to start with, Very tasty, although more capers would have been nice. One of us ordered the ravioli and I had the margarita pizza. The ravioli was very tasty but could of used some herbs in the ricotta. As for the pizza, it was good, but I found the cheese not quite right. Tiramisu was delicious! Overall a very nice restaurant and attentive service.

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.
