The best pasta. It will never fail

Since I was a little kid that I have known this restaurant and it's always an awesome idea to visit it to discover they never fail to serve the best pastas ever!

If you're into waiting for an hour for your table, sitting or standing on the sidewalk with a horde of other people waiting for theirs, then .... When you finally get inside, you'll have bland bread placed on your table by a fairly brusque waiter who will be in a rush all night. You'll have a choice of pasta and... More

The food was great, as well as the service. The food took long to come and the prices were rather high, especially if wine is included

This restaurant is typical for its pasta. Prepaired under the directions of Dona Maria (Italian Lady). I love Ravioli Verdi with parisien sauce! Althought all pastas are good there. Also, they serve other dishes equally good. They also have delivery, if you preffer to eat at home. The price is good.

The wait was long, but we could tell it was going to be worthwhile. This restaurant clearly has a dedicated following and there is no question in my mind as to why. If it weren't for my desire to try to things all of the time, I would have eaten here every night during our 5 day visit to Pinamar.... More

The pasta is just amazing! It's the best pasta I've ever eaten in a restaurant. I tried 2 other dishes that my husband and brother shared with me as well, and it was difficult to say which I would have preferred. They were all delicious. I had beef and spinach ravioli with chicken in a tomato sauce, my brother had... More

Good place to eat Italian food, the prices are right and the attention is excellent. This is one of Pinamar's "classic" restaurants. The place fills up quickly, be sure to be there a little before 8:30 PM opening time to get a table.
