“Really friendly traditional staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Tonight we ate at Trevi. The atmosphere is really classic but well maintenanced. The staff is at least as traditional as the ambiance but very friendly and polite. The owner is great and gives free limonchello's.
The food is ok. We ordered the pasta bolognese and the lasagne trevi. The were well prepared but not the best pasta we ever had. The tiramisu was frozen when served.
In the end: nice restaurant, average food, good price, lovely staff.

“you want real traditional Mendozan-Italian ambiance and food?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Owner Don Antonio learned to cook at his grandmother's knee, and brought her recipes with him when he emigrated from Italy and ended up in Mendoza. Traditional cuisine, professional waiters. A Mendoza tradition. Mendoza is full with trendy, international-style restaurants, which the hotels send the tourists to. If you want a true Mendoza experience and not a restaurant you could find anywhere in the wine country of the world, go to Trevi. Order the fresh pasta.

“Classic restaurant in Mendoza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Trevi is an old restaurant in Mendoza downtown. Kindly service and excellent food.
Everything is clean however the dining room is really old fashioned.

“Wonderfully dated Italian-Argentine restaurant in Mendoza.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2011

I visited this spot at least three or four times for wonderful luncheons during my twelve or so days in Mendoza.

Stepping into this restaurant, one instantly feels the history behind it. It is as if things have not changed since it opened a mid-century ago. Most of the professional and very attentive waiters were at least double my age (obviously, having worked at the same restaurant from their early adult years onwards). The décor of the large dining room has not changed all that much, either. The establishment seems frozen in a gentler time, a more civilized era.

I found this place by chance, and for whatever reason, it seems that all major guide books do not even bother mentioning it. (Why there is no mention of this restaurant is beyond my understanding, as it is a slice of Mendoza life!) This establishment is a must visit, primarily for their simple yet refined Italian-Argentine cuisine.

The service is another reason to visit. The elder proprietors (I think they are brothers) at least make an effort to walk past tables and say a cheery hello, or, help with service from time to time, always with a comforting smile. Their wine list is quite substantial, and like the food menu, prices are extremely affordable. Finally, if you are a respectable client, drink at least a bottle or two of wine with your meal, and order a reasonable amount of food and do not complain or make a fuss, you will be treated to their own homemade limoncello to enjoy after your meal with a proper espresso.

In short, this place is just so wonderfully, and hopelessly old-fashioned. Other tourists can go to other restaurants in town, but, I am sticking to this place the next time I visit Mendoza, as it was my favourite luncheon spot, without doubt.

Sinceremente,

Richard Maloney
