Great restaurant with family atmosphere

We were there two times, as we stayed in a hotel quite close to this restaurant. Each time we had a great pasta. The service was fantastic, and the restaurant is very cozy and romantic. Very good for a dinner for two. Decent prices. Very recommendable!

I know what good homemade pasta is and this restaurant serves it! The cheese filled noquis are out of this word and the ham and cheese agnolottis are sinful. The dinning room has character and it is nice to see the owner finishing the dishes in the middle of the salon. Service is cold to the point of almost rude... More

I've been to Italy, I've eaten italian in NY. To my amazement the best pasta I've ever eaten: La cuccina di Michele in Buenos Aires. Go there, you won't regret it.

My husband and I went here for a treat and we were not disappointed. We went for the special set menu which started with the antipasti buffet which was gorgeous (I have uploaded a photo). Then we were given the first pasta which was a pasta shell stuffed with pork in a pesto sauce which was so tasty, the second... More

This is a five star dinner in Buenos Aires! Restaurant is very nice, is kind of old but that gives it the special touch, you feel as if you were in your grandmothers living rooom and dinner table, everything is covered in dark wood, with good ambient lights, and right in the middle of the restaurant a small kitchenette were...

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...

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.
