A good place to have quick lunch in San Telmo area (near the main square). Service was good, but the food wasn't anything exceptional for Italian. Best part of the meal was the appetizers (mushrooms with cheese were great). Pasta was good.

It's fine. It's good, not great. I ordered the fresh homemade pasta and honestly could not tell the difference. Not memorable but not terrible. Be forewarned that they charge a cubierto or "cover charge" on top of the already over-priced food. (and of course there's the tip on top of that)

Sitting at san telmo square. Did a quick TA search for best place to eat. And highly ranked amici miei was just across the street. Squid ink black pasta is my favorite. Seafood was fresh and plenty. Pasta was perfect. Bread is warm (not usual cold and hard). Quick lunch so didn't do multi courses. But this is enough to... More

I went to this restaurant with high hopes given the large amounts of Italian immigrants resident in BA. But, mamma mia the food was poor and the price completely unjustified. If you're familiar with Strada in England then you've eaten at a better restaurant than Amici Miei. The pizzas had nice ingredients sure, but sadly there was more crust than... More

Amici Miei was directly across the street from our apartment so we hoped to make it our "go-to" restaurant during our stay. Sadly, it didn't live up to the hype in quality of food or ambience. The four of us ordered different starters and entrees and all agreed they were fine, but nothing extraordinary enough to bring us to the... More

By far the friendliest and finest restaurants in Buenos Aires. From the time you enter the restaurant until you pay the check, the service is beyond excellent. Overlooking the famous Plaza Dorego in Barrio San Telmo you can either sit in the minimum beautifully main dining room or take a table "a fuera" on one of the three balconies. We... More

This place is excellent from the handmade pastas, to the service, to the venue and patio overlooking the square. They don't open til 8pm and fill up quickly so show up just before opening and get a patio seat for two....super romantic. This is a nicer place so expect to dress a tad nicer and pay a bit more. This... More

We found this place by accident. After buying a mate cup in the San Telmo market we looked for a place to eat. At the edge of the square we followed some stairs up and stumbled upon a very cool Italian restaurant. The food was great, light and very tasty. Balcony seating was available but to guarantee it get a... More

Our waitress was the best we had in BA. She was super attentive at all times even thought the place was packed. The food was really good. I ordered pasta with shrimp and the sauce was really tasty. I have to say probably this was my fav in argentina. Must go!
