We ate here as part of a large party with friends from Argentina and USA. This is an upscale restaurant in the heart of Recoleta locate :Under the Bridge" in local Porteno jargon. As expected the food and service was exceptional and the ambience elegant.

Piegari is an old school Italian restaurant, located near The Four Seasons Hotel. The food was very, very good, the standouts (among what we ordered) being the risotto with chicken, and the hand made black fettuccine with shrimp. The portion sizes were huge, even for the individual servings, so we ended up wasting a lot of food. I wish the... More

I went here with friends for a dinner following a suggestion by the hotel we stayed at. The services is really good, the welcomed us with some champagne which I think it was cava, however it was pretty good. I'd recommend you to order a tenderloin. They also have nice raviolis. It's got a plenty of options or wines

Piegari is an old-school northern Italian restaurant in the Recoleta area of Buenos Aires. It’s mysteriously located under an overpass along with several other restaurants. We had a weekend lunch here and the restaurant seemed to be full of regulars, both couples and families. The complimentary sparkling wine at the beginning of the meal was much appreciated. We ordered plates... More

Good restaurant, with very good food. My wife and I ate a Fidelini Arrabiata for two. The dish is tasteful and the wine was good too. The staff were really friendly. We didn't do a reservation, but we were able to sit and eat. As desert we order a tiramisu. The tiramisu was regular, I think it would be better... More

There are a lot of tourists here, but don't be put off. They're here because it's near many hotels and the food is really good. In addition to the Aussies and other Americans, we noticed at least a few Argentineans, and judging by the reception they received, they were repeat customers. I had osso bucco over risotto here that was... More

My husband invited me over there for lunch. He had eaten there before, but for me it was the first time. We had malfatti for starters (delicious), then wonderful canelones and freshly-made spaghetti. Tiramisu for dessert, and it was divine. The service is very quick, efficient and you somehow don't notice the waiters, but they're always there. It is definitely... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
