Wonderful food

Excellent food and service. The ambience is special and we loved the bright original art. Good menu and wine selection. Central to our hotel so we could walk

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

Good service, wine list and a varied menu. The portions are huge and very tasty. Better make previous reservation because it´s usually full.

From the pristine linens to the well starched and charming servers this restaurant is elegant and welcoming. A flute of Prosecco is offered while you peruse the menu which sets the mood. The Caesar salad is delicious and the risotto divine. My husband chose the pasta Amatriciana and said it was one of the best he has had. You can't... More

All the food is great but the portions are very large. Waiters are professional, friendly and courteous. If you are going after 9pm, make sure you have a reservation.

This elegant restaurant in central Buenos Aires is easy to get to by car or cab since it just off 2 major boulevards. At lunch, it is full of businessmen and shoppers with bags from big name stores. The reception in a little stiff but efficient and attentive. The restaurant is well lit by large windows even if it is... More

A group of six took less than a 10 minute walk to this restaurant. There is another "Piegari" establishment across the street that does serve Italian but is more of a steak restaurant. This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at the hotel. Alberto was a very good server and helped with our selections and understanding of the menu. The... More

I had the langoustine with black Fettuccine in a cream sauce. Loads of garlic one of the best Italian dishes I've ever had. My wife had a no name large pasta stuffed with ham chicken and cheese in a light creme sauce. Also fantastic. The only other thing we could eat was to split a Caesar salad. Glad we walked... 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.
