This restaurant has style and the chefs know how to cook! We had grilled gambas, great cooking point, al pil pil and plain grilled and a caprese salad as starters. Sauce and cooking point of both shrimp dishes were really high class and the caprese was just good. For mains we had a spaghetti al fruit di mare, risotto de... More

Beautiful and elegant dining. Mid afternoon lunch was amazing. Good selection of excellent Argentine wines. Prices were very reasonable for beautifully prepared and presented food., Staff were attentive and helpful with our poor Spanish. They all made us feel like we were the most important people that had eaten in the restaurant that day... what a lovely introduction to this... More

Thoughtful service, wonderful food (delicious lasagna) in an attractive location. Note that it is a sunken restaurant, below street level, so not for those who fear enclosed places.

Meals are large and very good quality. Still can't believe how cheap good quality wine is here and pleasantly surprised at how low the bill was. Frank and Carmel Melbourne, Australia

Very good comparition with US !! Good. Some people knows what to search and what to expect, and how to consider each place. Perhaps price is not good for some ones; but let me see: Each time I visit BsAs, food price is a bargain compare with other places in the world, and food is as good as in Italy... More

First, our Spanish is minimal. Second, the clientele and staff were essentially Argentinians and the menus were in Spanish. We had a couple of hours for lunch. We were seated immediately, but I began to think we were going to have a struggle to enjoy our meal, if we could figure out how to order it. Nothing could have been... More

I used to live in Bs. As. and remember this was a place I loved. The place was exactly as I remembered it. Even the food was still good and many of the dishes were the same after a decade. Don't get me wrong I don't mean this to sound negative, on the contrary a restaurant that can maintain the... More

We stopped in for dinner after a long day of walking all over the city. We just ordered entrees and my husband said the risotto fruta de mare was one of the best he has had. It was full of all sorts of seafood. I ordered chicken breast and potatoes which was certainly edible and good but not outstanding. The... More

We thought that this nicely located restaurant would provie an excellent late nite dinner, but this was not the case with La Parolaccia. Prices do no meet the the quality of food. The breaded shrimps with champange sauce were the worst case: convenience food straight from the freezer and sauce had absolutely nothing to do with champange, it was somekind... More
