In the land where cow is king, Marcelo was the best meal my family had eaten that we went back a 2nd time. I mean, the moment we left and got back to the hotel, we were talking about what night we were going back!!! I'm originally from NYC & Italian and have traveled to Italy a few times, so... More

Arrived around 7.30 pm with no reservation on a Monday evening. Fitted us in. Beautifully laid tables and a pleasant ambience once the restaurant filled up a little. Service was good - half bottle of Malbec was enough for us this time! Food was excellent; grilled octopus to start and a fabulous crepe with langoustines. We would have preferred the... More

My husband and I recently had dinner at Marcelo's and it was fabulous. Real Italian food offering many choices. The pastas are amazing and freshly made in house. The prawns were excellent. We had a very nice server and the atmosphere was relaxed. We would definitely recommend for good Italian food

One of the best pasta places in town. Don't expect economic prices, but the dishes serve at least 2-3 people, so the overall cost relation is acceptable. Although the good wine list also has salted prices. Service is certainly one of the high points in this quite modern, riverside restaurant. If you like Italian, want to change from the parilla's...

When you first walk in you may expect some big box cookie cutter Italian food. But when you actually taste the food you will be shocked. The staff speak little English so be prepared to muddle through the menu but it's worth it! Best pasta we've had in a very long time! On par with what you would expect in... More

The ambience is very nice regardless of being very crowded. The food was well prepared and very tasty. Very decent servings for two per dish. The waiter was very friendly. Overall, a great experience.

MAKE A RESERVATION folks. The food is great the service was so so , they have an English menu feel free to ask for it. Their Carpaccio is to die for.The only downside is the huge portions meant to be shared which prevents to order two different meals if only two people go there.

Group lunch on a Monday. Nice environment with a view to the docks in Puerto Madero. Table was set as agreed in the reservation. Restaurant was not crowded (Monday) and environment t was quiet. Service was excellent, Gustavo devoted good time and manners to make sound recommendations and provide advice on meals. Appetizers were very good olives Ascoleana, rabas, well... More

We (4 adults one baby) went there by recommendation. Reserved a table at 10 PM in the afternoon, and the person on the phone assured us there would be no problem. When we arrived at the restaurant there was a huge ammount of people waiting already, but we assumed that they did not have a reservation. When we asked one... More

This place was recommended to us by a chef and he was SO right! The atmosphere is really nice (sit in the back with the view of the water if you can), the food is delicious and the service is impeccable. Warning: all the dishes are for 2 people are more, so go with a friend who likes the same... More
