They were polite, courteous. The place was clean. Not a lot of noise. But the food was, at best, mediocre. Disappointing.

As soon as you enter you'll see a lot of old victrolas, telephones, irons, bronze utensils and even a 8mm camera. The place will make you feel in the 50s in Buenos Aires. Unlike many other restaurants with that look, Prosciutto looks very clean and luminous. Prosciutto is an Italian restaurant in a city where Italian immigration was key. And... More

This is a great restaurant that serves delicious food, big portions and cool ambiance. The menu list is pretty extensive, and we kept coming back again and again. Can't recommend it highly enough!

I love this place. The ambiance is very cozy. The food is incredible. This restaurant is specialised in Italian food. A lot of different pasta choices and the sauces are amazingly good. The price is reasonable for the quality of the food. The only negative part is that they are not in such a good area and they dont have... More

Good service and a beautiful environment! The food was great, but is not cheap! We had beef and risotos which was perfectly cooked! Don't forget to try a entry with prosciutto!

I had the worst meal here. It was pretty late, around 11:30pm, and there were a few patrons still eating and chatting. We were promptly seated at a tabe in the back on the first floor. We should have left immediately after finding breadcrumbs under the napkins, on our plates, and stained glasses and cutlery. Alas, we thought it worth... More

I ate here with a friend who was staying at a hotel on the same street. We turned up at 7.45 pm to find it didn´t open until 8pm so we cam back 20 minutes later. For a while we were the only people in the place but it filled up (maybe we just ate too early) as time went... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
