Regular environment, good attention and excellent food. You will receive a courtesy champagne, good advice on the menu, and probably a good pasta cooked exactly "al dente". Some of the group received a pasta with tons of garlic. Be explicit of what you don't like. Great Malbec suggested by the waiter. Don't ask for a full plate, are too big.... More

Given all recommendations we heard, we were expecting for much more. Although is a good restaurant it’s not extraordinary. The ambience is nice, very popular among locals and a place to see and been seen. Food was good (no complains at all), presentation average, service very good, and when deciding take under consideration that portions are big. The wine selection... More

My wife and I went to the Colon Theater for a wondrful concerto by an ensemble of percussionists and then went to have dinner at Piegari. We had been there before and it is still very, very good. Our pasta was cooked exactly as it shoul be, and all of the restaurant people were very cordial. We really enjoyed our... More

We didn't enjoy the food very much. The pasta had too much garlic and not a good assort of see food. The dessert was not good at all. The menu had a bad translate at the spanish. The dessert was serve one at the time, we were a couple. The best was the cordiality of the waiter.

This is a must stop for me when at BA. I shared a full order of fettuccine and mushroom and a steaks with my colleague. The pasta serving was huge, enough for three. Since it was very rich, I suggest to split the dish with four and served as a side. The empanadas were very tasty. With a bottle of... More

This is the best food I have had in Buenos Aires, and Buenos Aires is loaded with great restaurants. It's an Italian restaurant with creative dishes, but without getting so far from home that the strong tastes of Italy are lost. It has a very good wine selection, service is swift and the waiters seem to anticipate what you need.

There are two of these in this area, we went to the Italian one, delicious, we ordered a Burrata as appetizer, and then the sorrentinos which are a pasta, the waiter suggested this and they were great! It is elegant, great food, and helpful staff, loved it!

This restaurant had been recommended to us as a very good Italian restaurant. Well...if you are Italian, as I am, you would be a bit disappointed. Our pasta was too rich and slightly overcooked. Perhaps we were unlucky... The waiter managed to break the cork when opening our bottle of wine, and although he filtered it and decantered it, I... More

This small Italian restaurant is steps from the Four Seasons hotel and we liked it so much we went back within the one week we had in BA. The wait staff are all professionals, the food is fabulous and the wine list extensive and quite good. The "langastinos a la crema de ajo" is amazing and the spaghetti and clam... More
