Elegant Setting. Fresh, Copious Food, Good Service

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.

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 some Italian meatballs and the spinach cannoli bolognes. It was fantastic, my colleagues enjoyed their meals also and hector the waiter was a very friendly, funny waiter and made our experience special.

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

We were staying at the four seasons and figured this was a tourist joint since it was so close to the hotel and under a bridge with multiple other restaurants. It was packed on a Tuesday night which was a good sign. The waiter and manager barely spoke English but was very attentive. So happy we ended up here- the... More

We actually went in to the steak restaurant across the street and one of the waiters happily walked us across and checked us in at the Italian Piegari! The staff was friendly and helpful. The portions are huge, so share! The caprese was good as were the pasta and ravioli mains. We had a nice bottle of pinot (they make... More

We arrived at the restaurant without a reservation, and were seated right away. The waiter staff seemed friendly and helpful at first. After the first course (cheese balls in tomato sauce that were only ok), all went down hill.... The pasta with spinach was too salty and oily. The filet steak my husband ordered arrived rare (when he asked for... More

The restaurante is in a funny location under a freeway called "the Recova"...but it is very posh place.. unfortunately the resto AA was dead... so in a hot summer night eating hot food was a bit complicated....luckly they provided a portable fan which helped.. The food is good...classical Argentinian meats...pasta and others.

Waitress was very nice. Food was good but not great. Mushroom risotto was great, mushroom fettuccine was just o.k. Place was crowded and loud. Would go again but did not have a great experience.

Food was just ok. Service mediocre. The atmosphere quite melancholic... But, as other reviewers wrote here, I had also a bad surprise with the check: We ordered a bottle of wine for 160 pesos and on the bill it was increased to 240 pesos. The waiter did not accept my complaint and found many excuses to justify the higher price.... More
