We've been here in our firsr time in Buenos Aires and we are certainly not coming back. The food is awesome and comes in very big quantities, but the prices are exagerated and the service is poor. The waiters treated us like children that couldnt pay for the place. When we finished and decided to go back to the hotel... More

Really outstanding restaurant, beautiful surroundings, lovely atmosphere and very helpful staff. Wine list is superb! Especially the Malbec. Visited with work colleagues, who highly recommended the restaurant. Managed to order fillet steak, even though it wasn't on the menu! Great night. Looking forward to going back

Recommended by the concierge at our hotel. Liked it so much went there twice. It's a little in the pricier side. The service and food are excellent. The portion of the dishes are large and very flavorful.

We were prepared for the prices here by several TA reviews. The well-spiced pasta was certainly good (and large enough to share), salad course was fine (we shared also), but the Salentein Malbec at 200p a bottle was really high. Servicio charge was the highest we ever paid in BA. Excellent waiters, friendly. At the end of the day, bill... More

First and foremost, don't look to find this place along the canal, the entrance is street side!! Other than walking past it along the canal, once we got in there.... Well worth it!!! Food was TASTY, good wine list, bit pricey but the service makes up for it. It was a good dining experience and atmosphere. The portions are for... More

We had a quick dinner here b/c we sat in traffic for an hour to get to the restaurant on a Friday night. The staff was so friendly and it was not a problem at all. Of course in BA, people don't eat until 10pm so even though we showed up at 845pm, there were hardly any people there. When... More

Had dinner here while in Buenos Aires on vacation. The home made pastas are amazing. I had the Carbonara which was made in the true Italian way with raw egg, resulting in a lovely yellow color and great taste. My friends had the Gnocchi with green spinach cream sauce which they loved. Note that all pastas have to be ordered... More
