Homemade pasta. Amazing Italian food and a very traditional place. It is also very cool to watch the chef cooking your meal in front of you and all the others at the restaurant.

The pastas where very good yet.... I guess I over hyped the restaurant in my head and was a bit unimpressed. The wine list was below average, I was expecting to find some italian options to change the pace from all the malbecs and none listed. The restaurant seemed old and tired. The servers where very attentive and again the... More

From the moment you walk in the door of this friendly intimate restaurant in Las Carnitas, you feel like you're in Italy. The large antipasto buffet is just like you would see in most any trattoria in Italy. We had the gustacion de pastas and it was a great way to sample 4 of their homemade pastas, which is what...

Real, authentic, fresh, good quality, expertly cooked PASTA! That's what you come here for. I've never really been all that impressed by pizza or pasta in Argentina, despite the country's Italian heritage, but this place really stands out. The owner clearly knows what he is doing when it comes to Italian dishes. We had the set menu so had a... More

Wonderful staff, great food, and reasonable prices. The spaghetti al gamberi was my favorite, fresh homemade pasta, rich flavorful tomato creme sauce, and plenty of perfectly cooked shrimp. Our waiter was attentive, open, friendly and had some great recommendations, but never pushy. The tiramisu was also a nice finish to the meal.

Had the ravioli with rucula and garlic meatballs The YUM expression has a new level!!!! Absolutely delicious!!! Top of the line service I must say. The wine list was a bit poor (Lack of Malbec) but the meals were fresh, 100% home made and cooked to perfection!

First, the food is just incredible. The homemade pasta is cooked right in the the middle of the seating area, which is fun to watch. The ambiance is quite and classy. The wait staff have all been there for years and consistently provide wonderful service - even on busy nights. Most times I have gone I have been served both... More

Lived three blocks away from this restaurant for close to two years in the neighbourhood of Las Cañitas and yet though I passed in front of this it almost daily I never tried it. That should be a testament on how unassuming the façade is. Shame on me. I just wish I'd tried it sooner.

Went back in April for a business trip and this is still the best Italian restaurant in Buenos Aires and have been going there now for more than 12 years.....superb food and service with great prices Not on the tourist trail and a local secret Remember the plates are massive and can be shared!
