We had read previous reviews and expected to have a great time with delicious food. Stick to pasta if you do not want to be disappointed but do not expect anything special especially if you have travelled around the world. The salmon is to be avoided unfortunately as it is the only fish dish. It was not only un-tasty, but... More

We ate here on our last night in Argentina. Our friends have been eating here for years and shared this gem with us. It is a beautiful family owned italian restaurant. The service was perfect and the servers were so friendly and helpful. The menu is on a chalk board and changes based on availability for quality ingredients. We ordered... More

We ended up getting lucky when we arrived to this restaurant without a reservation. They worked us in besides the fact that they didn't have any availability. They were very gracious. This was our best meal while we stayed in Bariloche. Yes, it is expensive but very much worth it. The ambiance is very romantic, quite, cozy & warm. The... More

Our last night in Bariloche, we had a terrific Italian meal at Il Gabbiano. The owner, Guillermo, came and picked us up at our hotel at Llao Llao and delivered us to his restaurant, which is located about 20 minutes east of Bariloche. We had a wonderful Italian meal in the quaint and romantic restaurant. The service was outstanding and... More

Four of us dined there twice! Italian dishes were very good, wines were local, really nice and well priced. Service was spectacular, if you are staying nearby they will send a driver to pick you up from your hotel and return you home after dinner..all included in dinner price. My steak was best in Argentina super flavor, high quality. Big... More

The best Italian food in Argentina! Actually, my in-laws are italian and this is some of the best italian food I've had. The place is small and quaint, very cozy! The chalkboard menu keeps the menu fresh. Service was impeccable! I had the Tagliatelle alla Boscaola... Amazing! This place is a must try!!!

Excellent food - one of the few places that provided multiple vegetarian options. Specifically the pesto pasta was very well done. The service was good and the staff very friendly. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

This 'big', 9-table spot featured excellent multi-lingual service, a delicious chalkboard menu, and the best pasta we enjoyed in Argentina.

We began our honey moon in Bariloche argentina. Our first night we went to Il Gabianno, it was close to our hotel and very recommended. We were so happy with the food and the service that we had to repeat that same week! Best Italian Rest. In Town!!
