If I were Italian I'd call this place home. Fresh, homemade pasta to die for, the service was great - friendly and attentive and the wine list extensive enough to satisfy the most unsatisfiable of vino drinkers. My wife and I shared a mushroom and polenta starter which was divine and I had rabbit for mains which was cooked to... More

One of the best Italian restaurants anywhere in the world, including the best restaurants in Italy. Charming, romantic, and not to be missed. What a treasure! Very reasonably priced as well. Owner clearly knows what he is doing, service is great, killer wine, and every dish is spectacular. Go there!

After two failed attempts to get a table during southern american summer, my gurlfriend and I finally got reservations to dine at this highly recommended restaurant. We were first greeted with a sign outside which said no credit cards were accepted. This is an extremely uncomfortable situation having to carry large amounts of 100 peso bills (largest bills in Argentina)... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Il Gabbiano tonight. The server was helpful and attentive. The tomato soup rich and fulfilling. Great avocado and shrimp salad appetizer. We shared the ossobuco which was enough for both of us. Then samples the cheese. Excellent experience, highly recommended

This is a wonderful little Italian restaurant 5 minutes from the Llao Llao hotel on the main road (easy to find). They (the owner) will even come and pick up you from the Llao Llao hotel. The owner is passionate about his restaurant and it shows with the friendly attentive staff and the high quality of the food. The menu... More

A family owned business for more than 30 years. The owner came to pick us up at our hotel. His wife is the chef, and the staff is very accommodating. The menu is simple, but fresh. We wanted to have some preparations done off many, and they were very gracious in accommodating our requests. The food was good and had... More

Il Gabbiano was referred to us by our host at the Peninsula Hotel from which it was just a short taxi ride to the restaurant. We had an early reservation and were welcomed by the entire staff at the door. We were seating in an area to the far right next to a beautiful front picture window overlooking the one... More

We had heard about this restaurant from a guide in Buenos Aires. It was a warm, homey place. They owner even picked us up from our nearby hotel! The menu was a sampling of the local fresh foods. We were pleasantly surprised. The Malbec wine was delicious, from the many various choices of wine available. The shrimp and avocado salad... More
