This is really a high end Italian restaurant in every aspect! The food is excellent, the ambiente very classy and the service outstanding! If you had enough beef go here for the veal - it is so delicious! Very good wine card with excellent choices - you don't have to take the Gaja you can stay with a Malbec from... More

We visited Bella Italia last year and were impressed enough to go again. One can only eat so much Lomo in a week. Food was outstanding and so was the service until the place started filling up. Our waiter was overwhelmed and the service went from attentive to non-existent. Our dishes had not been cleared and we did not see... More

I loved my evening at Bella Italia Ristorante. The restaurant was very quiet when I came in for my 8pm reservation, but by 10pm, it was rather busy. It's an upscale place with a respectable crowd. The food was amazing. I had spaghetti pomodoro and it was just like I was in Italy, again. Food is fresh and quality. Definitely... More

We ate here for our last night in Buenos Aires and it was by far the best meal we had in Argentina. Our daughter agreed and she has been here for the last three months. The menu has the Italian standards plus special dishes that I have never seen on a menu, such as the pasta with a curry cream... More

Having lived a year in Italy, it was wonderful to have excellent Italian food for dinner with wonderful Argentinian deserts! The only problem - after a three hour meal, there was absolutely no room for even a cup of coffee.

We had a selection of ham and cheese sandwiches with a wonderful cup of cafe con leche. After a long flight, it was great to relax and have a comfortable lunch. The wait staff was very attentive and the food yummy.

It was our good fortune that we stumbled on this Italian restaurant while strolling through the elegant section of Palermo. Beautiful decor, soft lighting, along with great music just added to the wonderful ambiance. The owner Paula, was very gracious and the staff very professional. An extensive menu of pastas, fish etc... allows for plenty of choices. We decided on... More

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
