Good food, but rather pricey

Good food, but rather pricey. It's a good place to go, if you around and you like pasta. It's a bit overpriced, though. There's a volcan sort of dessert, it sounds better than it is.

We love going here. We go every other week. Great family style restaurant. Do NOT order a whole dish for youself!! It's family style. They say for 2 people and we usually order 3 pastas for 6 adults and 2 kids. LOVE the pizza bread. It's awesome. They offer it when you enter the restaurant. Accept if you are willing... More

I was passing through BA on a trip and decided to have lunch there. The restaurant is quite nice with a good ambiance. The service was quite good until waiters started to leave and then became mediocre to terrible. Closing time for lunch was still more than a half an hour away, but the waitstaff was leaving. For a starter... More

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 food is the best Italian in the city and the service is fine dining! Get the mystery mood wine as it changes flavors based on your mood...delish!!!! I will always pay a visit when in Buenos Aires.

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.

One of the best Italian restaurant I had taste, a five star attention, the food oooohhh, try a black fettuccine, I ask for the risotto Di mare an excellent choice. All the plate we ask was 10 point. Congratulation to the chef.

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.
