After eating at Epicuro last November where we had poor service, I said I would not return but I had a chef/hotel owner friend in town in January and decided I would give Epicuro another chance. The waiter was excellent; he even brought me a glass of water with ice without my asking while I waited for my friend to... More

We were here tonight, and we both had the beef lasagna. It came accompanied by apple slices but no other vegetables. It was very good, with portions big enough for us, but hearty eaters may find the size modest. We ordered wine by the glass, specifically a Chilean merlot. It was opened at the table where our portions were poured.... More

Friendly and professional service at this lovely Italian restaurant. My boyfriend was poorly so I took myself off for some comfort food. Complimentary appetizer was tasty, along with the bread. My starter of ensalada caprese was generous and delicious. Had the carbonara which was very good. Too full for dessert but really appreciated the complimentary ice cream! Can recommend for... More

Great little restaurant just a stones throw away from our hostel. Had excellent pizza here and we were treated to a small starter and small dessert on the house. When our waiter heard us mention Mezcal, he gave us all a small shot glass. Highly recommended.

On a Monday evening in Jan., this Italian restaurant was quiet. Four of had a very good Montipulciano red for 290 pesos, about $14.50 at the present exchange rate. The staff brought out a small tasting of thinly cooked eggplant. Different choices of bread were in the bread basket. Between us we had a salad, a pesto spaghetti dinner, two... More

We were so pleased to have been recommended Epicuro and made so welcome by Nancy and Eder. Being typical Brits and not speaking Spanish they patiently talked us through the menu which resulted in us having a delicious dinner and an excellent wine.Muchas gracias and every success for the future!!

Foods are so good. It is a real "Real Italian Restauran". You can drink real wine there and pizzas are amazing. A little bit pricey comparing to Mexico but worth for it.

Found it yesterday with considerable difficulty, but had a wonderful almuerzo. The staff was very friendly, helping with the menu, serving some extras and assisting in every way. The bruschetta, melon y jamon, as well as the entrees were all very tasty and beautifully presented. Prices are quite moderate. Don't miss it. Quite a relief from the cuisine of Oaxaca... More

It was a Wednesday night in Oaxaca and we wanted a break from Mexican mole. I thought this restaurant might be the antidote. I was wrong. There were only 4 other diners in the restaurant. Yes, the busy season hasn't really started yet, but it still says something about a restaurant especially since many of the other restaurants we visited... More
