Best Italian

In my opinion it's still the best Italian in BA. Every plate is big enough to share with some left over. Very tasty and a great value. either location is great. If its sunny go to Port a Madero

The waiter was very nice to us. He gave us tips about only ordering one plate because they are huge!! It was true, this is good to share but limits the possibility of ordering various plates to try. Nevertheless our ordering was delicious!

Every time I am in BA I need a break from feef of a couple of days. I was looking for yet another place with a good alternative to meat and found it here. Friendly staff, good Food and relatively good Prices for Puerto Madero.

When our group visited (400 people) BA, Marcelo was not on our dine around list. We asked around for a good Italian themed restaraunt as we were getting tired of beef at every stop. We had the concierge at the Hilton make the call for our reservations as we were told it was difficult to obtain seating at a moments... More

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighborhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
