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

Our waiter, Ricardo, was superb and helped with our orders with great suggestions. A great dinner with antepasto and wine cost around 700 pesos per couple plus one... More

Best pasta in Buenos Aires it has to be in Marcelo. Just try to outsmart the crowd outside to have a meal you will remember.

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

My wife and I went to Marcelo with friends while traveling in Argentina. I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical at first about eating Italian food in Argentina, but all it took was one bite. The menu has a broad choice of Pizzas, Pastas and Main courses, all of which I found superb, but the pasta, which is... More

The atmosphere is elegant and service is very professional. Menu is very large and food is very good. Each dish is big enough for at least two persons - we did not realize until it was too late that the statement on the menu "our dishes are to be shared" meant just that. Had both dinner and next day lunch... More

I come here with my family quite often when we crave good Italian food. The service is almost always impeccable. The "outside" area overlooks Puerto Madero, so it's nice to get a table here. Also, they are open 'till late: the last time we were here we arrived after midnight. It's good to know you can come here late! The... More
