Not only great Pasta

Went with my wife for dinner. She asked for pasta, and it wasquite good. I ordered a steak, knowing that this is a pasta restaurant. For my surprise, I got one of the best steaks I have ever tried. High quakity beef grilled to perfection. Great atmosphere and great service

Broad menu, great wine list, always consistent but pricey. Try ordering the entraña which is sure to please.

Tasty eggplant and penne arribiatica perfectedly paired with a wonderful Ruttini Malbec, made this simple meal memorable. Our waiter, Juan Carlos, was great. The patrons were mostly local business people who were in no hurry to rush through their meals, nor were we. Definitely worth a try.

Outstanding pasta and steaks. The order sizes are ENORMOUS! If the option is presented for a 1/2 order, choose it! Resturant is located under a highway, which at first made me question if we should change our reservations...so glad we didn't!

I would highly recommend this restaurant. Prompt,and friendly service. Reasonably priced dinner. We had starters, a bottle of wine, a rib eye and a pasta dish for about $160.00 US dollars. Our bottle of wine was a higher quality, but this is a must stop if you are in the area.

six of us from Australia on the last night of a great five week holiday in South America which has been fabulous. We had lots of plans for fine dining in BA but with today being a public holiday and us needing to leave for home early tomorrow morning, before 6am, our options were limited. We were recommended Piegari. We... More

This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel and our tour guide told us that it was highly rated so we tried it for a late lunch one day. The service was superb - including a free glass of Prosecco to start things off! Between the four of us, we tried both steaks and pasta, and everything was delicious.... More

We were in the mood for italian food and the staff at our hotel recommended this restaurant. We were delighted with it! I had the black fetuccine with shrimp & garlic sauce, it was scrumptious! Hubby had the gnocci w/stew & sausage and loved it too. For dessert we shared a limonata, it was delish! Tip well, their waiters deserve... 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.
