I took my wife and daughters family to La Virundela for dinner on two occasions. The first visit was a WOW. We had grilled chorizo and grilled provolone as an appetizer. For our main course my son in law had the Butchers Cut and my wife and I split a thick bone in grilled prime rib. The beef was very... More

Our group of 6 tried this restaurant because of its great reviews on Trip Advisor. We weren't disappointed. The menu was simple, but very appealing. Our steaks were all excellent and prepared to perfection. The French fries and sweet potato chips were a great complement to our meals. The drinks were all expertly prepared and delicious ... from margaritas, to... More

After a search on Trip Advisor we decided to dine at La Virundela on our last night in SMA. The combination of Argentinian and Italian options was appealing after many meals of (excellent) Mexican food. Our party of 3 all opted for pasta dishes, after enjoying savory and delicious beef empanadas and perfectly dressed fresh salads and melt in your... More

Stopped by this lovely place around 830pm and rang a door bell to be greeted by the host of the evening. A funny man from Argentina who kept my friend and I entertained the whole evening. He spoke English very well and since I am quite rusty it was nice. He also shared lovely stories about the different foods and... More

We were tickled reading the replies to various reviews by the owner. Definitely showed some personality. After a play, pouring rain, and having found the restaurant we intended to dine in was closed, we dashed up to a...sliding glass door that was locked. But they will ring you in if you push a bell. There was only one other table... More

Thank you very much for your review. After reading it, we are almost making a decision about closing the restaurant. We have in mind to open de sex shop with the very most wonderful toys instead of selling steaks. We hope to see you soon. Ah !!! We will be not serving "agua de garrafon" More

It was a happy surprise to find that I probably had the best gnocchi in my life in Mexico! La Virundela has excellent meat dishes a la Argentinian parilla but also has delicious authentic Italian pasta dishes as well. The owner, Riccardo is extremely welcoming and like many of the other reviews state, he makes you feel like you are... More
