This was our first meal in Buenos Aires, and we were looking forward to trying this restaurant's Italian dishes which are so highly recommended in the guidebooks. The portions were large, and the food was good, but not outstanding. We arrived about 9:30PM and expected a busy vibe, but the place was nearly empty. The other diners, however, were Spanish... More

took some business assocates to dinner at this location. The server took our main entrees order without writing anything down for 7 of us! Everything was correct and all came out together!

As the menu was just too tempting for me and I couldn't make a decision ... I asked for the waiter to recommend a great steak. He did not disappoint! - The Wine menu was equally enticing and having chosen a fine Merlot I had the Argentinian Steak meal experience that I'd been looking forward to for years!

Four of us went here as it was recommended in Frommers Guide Book.The place appeared to be a spacious fine dining restaurant, but was near empty when we arrived. This should have told us something. It remained near empty. The personnel were attentive and efficient but the food was inexcusably not authentic Italian. All four of us were disappointed with... More

This restaurant was recommended by hotel concierge and it did not disappoint. I had the premium steak, delicious cooked just right. The service is professional. Price with a bottle of wine for two and two appetizers was $830 pesos plus tip (about $100 US). Although this is an Italian restaurant we had an Argentinian dinner, the steak and the appetizers.

Italian food is a specialty in B.A. Piegari was only a short walk from our hotel and it was a winner from start to finish. We entered a half-full room at 8:30 PM and it seemed that within minutes, it was full, but surprisingly not noisy. I believe that you could close your eyes and point to anything on the... More

Was in BA and stopped by Piegari for dinner. The food was excellent and the prices I thought were very fair. The place got packed around 9:00 pm and that's when the service got slow. The only issue I had about this place was it took about 30 minutes to get the tab. Short of that it was one of... More

Loved the atmosphere and the food was outstanding - had homemade pasta with tomato, basil, and garlic. Great wine list too and close to the Sofitel Hotel where we stayed

Piegari has two outlets in Recoleta, one devoted mostly to steaks and right in front another one with a wider range of offer. The quality of the steaks is excellent as one would expect in Buenos Aires and service is very professional. A must order dish: the traditional "Bife de Chorizo" steak is one of the most succulent culinary meat... More

Nice food and staff very on the ball and dressed in uniform, they're not shy in reminding you at the end that service is not included. We had the mushroom risotto and spaghetti with vegetables both very nice but not mind blowing, unfortunately they are in the process of decorating which caused a few wet drips from ceiling, like to...
