“South American and Italian cuisine done well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Wow! We made it a point to try it at lunch time recently and now we look forward to dinner there, The decor and menu are both interesting, and choices are affordable. We have never had such good gnocchi before!

“Stop eating at the chains and try this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I am a proponent of supporting locally owned restaurants, and this one should definitely be on everyone's list. The new location is bigger and better (don't worry, it's in the same strip only a different suite), and they have obviously worked very hard to establish the reputation that they have. Every dish is made with such great care and the flavors are like nothing else you can find. Stop going to places like Applebees, live a little, and try this place. You will not be sorry.

“absolutley delicious sauces”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The food was fantastic and the sauces incredible. My son had the creamy pesto and finished his plate. The steak with Chimichuri (sp) sauce was delicious. The mussel in wine sauce again very good and the bread to dip in the sauces was a perfect accompaniment. Will definitely be going back.

“Bueno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Although it was a little difficult for us to find with our GPS, we were absolutely glad we found it. The food was fabulous!! The toast with huacatay sauce was so different for us, and just fantastic-spicy and delicious. The filet was very good. Didn't really need the chimichuri sauce. We also had wonderful civeche and well done mussels. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We are planning our next trip to El Gaucho Inca.

“Great food, atmosphere could be better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

The food is absolutely fantastic, fresh, tasty and good.
The owners should improve the atmosphere, the dining area is not very cosy, maybe some interior design would help. Besides that, I say it again, food is fantastic.
