I had a business dinner here as the guest of two business partners. The more senior of the business partners knew the restaurant well so he ordered for all three of us.

Superior Italian food in a beautiful restaurant. The fish I ordered was so fresh and flaky I would order it again and again. My friend had the seafood pasta and loved it. Highly recommended.

Grilled squid was extreemly tender and the fettucini with cream sauce and bacon for 2 feeds 3 and does so deliciously -- must go. Great area and beautiful restaurant, definitley worth every calorie!

This is in my top three in Buenos Aires. It is a good place to get a rest from the meat chain. Good Italian food. The pizza bread the offer and the burata alone are worth going there. If you come 7:30 you might get away without a reservation, latter its full, no chance to get a seat.

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
