On the recommendation of our hotel concierge, we went here for a week day off-season dinner. The food was excellent, especially the pasta, and the service was friendly and efficient. Buy a souvenir copy of Mama's small book of recipes and poems; the profits go to a good cause.

We went there for dinner and we were totally spoiled! The restaurant is beautiful, the staff is very kind and serve us speaking good English and more important than anything else, the food is brilliant! To make our night even more memorable, the chef and owner came to talk to the clients by the end of the dinner!

I have one of the best steaks I have every had, washed down with some excellent malbec. My wife had lamb, again perfectly cooked. And desert... More

When you get tired of "just steaks" in Mendoza, this place is worth a visit. Good home made pasta and home-made tasting Italian food. The place looks expensive from outside, but the prices are fair. Good English speaking staff.

This is a great little Italian Restaurant down the block from the Hyatt. Our waiter Gabriel spoke excellent English, and made our out night out very special, taking us downstairs for a look at their very well stocked wine cellar, helping us pick out apps and entrees, all of which were excellent. It's just everything you want in a friendly... More

Everything! The restaurant is as elegant as the food. And the wine list is superb. The portions are large so go hungry.

This is a great family run place with most of the tables outside in the little courtyard / garden. After many good meals dominated by lots steak we were looking for something a little lighter and we came here on the recommendation of the Hyatt and were not disappointed. The shared starter of a caprese salad was excellent and was... More
