Nice Italian ristorante, well placed and comfortable to access. Prices ok. Good menu with pasta, pizza and meat. The service was excellent, the waiter very professional. We had Calzón Napolitano, one was good for 2. Restrooms clean, could be better but ok.

Caprese salad with tomatoes that actually taste good. Olive oil, had zero flavour. Spaghetti Bolognese, fresh egg noodles, authentic Bolognese sauce, only complaint, need to salt the water! Great service despite the language barrier. Definit repeat.

The word on the street is that you don't have to tip in Argentina. DON'T tip in Argentina. If you do, you're a sucker, because they build about a 10% tip into your tab. It's called "Table Service." They might consider it a charge for...More

We had our second supper there. Although we are only in Buenos Aires for a week our first meal was so good we had to go back. A very good Italian restaurant with a wide selection of dishes and wines. We both had the lasagna...More

I really enjoyed it. I was with my daughter in downtown Buenos Aires and looking for a cost-effective restaurant nearby. We ordered a delicious ravioloni quenched in tomato sauce. We didn’t drink alcohol this time; just a good oj. So, we spent only 18 dollars...More

We got there at 3:15pm. The maitre invited us to leave since the kitchen services finishes at 4pm. I got there just because the restaurant. A terrible experience; a lack of respect. Just write effective ours on the internet!

I've had lunch here a couple of times as it is very close to an office I sometimes work out of. The steak I had was on both occasions reasonably good but not excellent. Not a place to seek out but if you are in...More

On my previous visit to Il Fratello, I commented adversely on the non-acceptance of credit cards. Fortunately, this seems to have been a temporary blip and on my most recent visit, on April 24th, 2018, I was relieved to find that, in line with almost...More

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave.,
