Description: Ituzaingo is a close doors restaurant in the most bohemian neigbourhood from Mendoza. The building is a loft wich shows real mendocinean lifestyle. The atmosphere is very eclectic style and combines artistic expresions (paintings and sculptures).The food is mostly tradional Argentine Cuisine in a real gourmet style. Wines are from the personal cellar of the owner (no wine list).The phrase for our concept is:¨Ituzaingo is a restaurante but still a house, welcome.

What a really special night of wine, food, music and conversation. Gonzalo really does open up his home and life to complete strangers and before the night is over you're best of friends. The food was tremendous and Gonzalo helped pick out a great Mallbec/Cab blend. One caution: There is virtually no outdoor signage so make sure you have the... More

This was our first experience with the "puertas cerradas" (closed doors) tradition in Argentina. Private homeowners open their doors to paying visitors, who are treated as welcomed guests -- which you are. DON'T be put off by the location on Ituzaingo Street, or by your taxi driver's hesitation to drop you at the door. The neighborhood wasn't too sketchy, but... More

At first, being at Gonzalo's place for dinner felt a bit like a dinner party where you know few people. A little awkward at first, but as the booze and starters came and went, inhibitions were lowered, and conversation flowed much more easily. The design of the restaurant / house, with the huge, high-roofed living room and sitting area meant... More

This is far and away one of the better experiences we had in Mendoza. Gonzalo is a fantastic host and the food is absolutely phenomenal. More than anything, this places goes well beyond the food, its about the experience. Try it, i promise you will like it.

I had never tried a "closed dining" experience before but I think this will be the first of many. You are invited into Gonzalo's home and warmly greeted by Gonzalo and his team. Several courses of wine and appetizers are served while you converse with everyone and learn about the region, the food and wine. Everything is done at a... More

We spent New Year's Eve here -- best New Year's of all time. The house is spectacular, the owner warm and welcoming, and the food exquisite. A unique and memorable experience, perfect in every way!

When you enter someone's home and the hallway is lined with bottles of wine, you know a special evening is in store. Gonzalo is a superlative host and creates a magical evening in a locale that serves as both his residence and restaurant. The setting is intimate, sophisticated, and romantic with many of the tables located in a "secret," lush... More

Wow! We had a great experience at Ituzaingo. Gonzalo our host made us feel at home in his home. Ituzaingo is located on a quiet street in the city of Mendoza. The place is very deceiving from the outside. When you come inside you discover a very tasteful setting from living room, wine rack to the outdoor seating. The courtyard... More
