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!

On our last day in San Telmo we checked out Amici Miei for a meal that would tide us over until our evening flight back to the US. This proved to be a really good choice. The food was good and the service matched the food. The handmade pasta is super.

First of all I come to Buenos Aires all the time, and this restaurant is one of my favorites!!!! The service, the food all is exceptional. I was just there on a Sunday afternoon and it was totally full. Had to wait 15 minutes for a table and received a glass of champagne while we waited...........classy!!!!!

I LOVED it! The entrance doesn´t call your attention .I would have walked past had it not been for my friend who knew the restaurant. It is an old house, upstairs , right in front of Plaza Dorrego, the heart of San telmo. We had reservations at a little wrought iron railed balcony. The room was just enough for two... More

My wife and I have going to Amici Miei for years now. And year after year that we return, we always make it a point to go back to Amici Miei. And year after year, it is always great and they are always consistent with their food. On a nice day, we always ask for a balcony seat, that over... More
