Absolutely one of the best Italian meals in Buenos Aires

Everything here was great! The best calamari I have ever had! All the pasta dishers were great, you cannot go wrong. We had PAZ Malbec with our meal and it was perfect (and reasonably priced). For dessert try the Italian Crepe...it is womderful. Caramelized crepe with sauce and gelato. Perfect... read more

Wow! I just don't get the high rating. Went here for lunch based on recommendation from lonely planet and had a terrible experience. We were four and all ordered different items from the lunch menu and not one dish was good. For starters extremely over cooked limp asparagus, a Caesar salad drowning in Carsar mayonnaise and old tasting deep fried... More

Went on a recommendation from a colleague, along with 5 other colleagues. Service good, wine good but found the food fairly bland. I had lasagne which was lukewarm, one colleague had pasta in tomato sauce which could've been rustled up with a jar of passatta, overall we all agreed that the food was tasteless. Would not return

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
