If you looking for a different experience outside the main stream of the restaurants in Mendoza, you should take a visit to Ituzaingo, one of the best experiences I had in a private restaurant, specially the attention Gonzalo Cuervo gives to you, the place, the food, the wines, the dogs, the people, every thing is amazing in this restaurant! cheers!

This was our favorite night in Mendoza! Gonzalo, our host, made us feel right at home. His home was quaint and chic. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and the wine selection broad enough to fit any taste and budget. It was like being at a friend's dinner party and getting to meet their friends... More

Yes, itś a closed door restaurant, but do yourself a favor and sign up for their amazing cooking class. I arrived at 5:00 p.m., and was greeted by charming host, Gonzalo, with a glass of wine. The house itself is gorgeous, with lovely art and decor and open spaces that transition into the lovely courtyard outside. Mater Chef, Martin led... More

Great food, great wine and amazing hospitality (as other reviews have noted) and unique experience but make sure you book ahead, even if it's only two of you. The restaurant fills up quickly and was booked for the next two weeks when we visited. An absolute must do when you're in Mendoza.

Ituzaingo was a really nice experience. We had a ceviche as an appetizer, empanadas as the first course, a salad afterwards, a selection between white salmon, vegetable lasagna and a filet mignon as a maincourse, and a (i think) orange pancakes with a dulce de leche creme on top of a brownie. First we recieved a glass of spankling wine,... More

We arrived for a "cocktail style" beginning a bit more crowded than I expected. Seated for dinner inside, we had 3 choices, steak, lasagna, and white Salmon. The steak was enjoyed, lasagna was small and not your typical, white salmon was bad I needed a knife to cut it. Must have been frozen previously. After main course we waited to... More

Closed door restaurants are not common in the states, thus we were excited to try out something new after reading the reviews. There is a metal ring on an unassuming door that you see from the street. Pull the ring and you hear chimes inside. The door is opened by your gracious host and doorway is a collection of wines...

My wife and I learned of Ituzaingo from the concierge at our hotel (Park Hyatt Mendoza) and dined here on Christmas night. We enjoyed the closed restaurant setup, which enables you to get to know your host and other guests in a casual setting (think drinks and appetizers in a friend’s home) before being seated separately for dinner.
