Upscale Italian Restaurant

Nice, upscale Italian restaurant. Fresh food, wonderful location on Puerto Madero. Good ambient for all occasions. A bit pricy, but worth it.

I have eaten here multiple times for lunch with a work crowd. The food is of good quality but in my experience not consistent - same dishes are slightly different every visit. Menu is in Italian, but waitstaff are not very friendly or efficient. Plan on 90 mins minimum for a meal.

Feeling a little bit of meat overindulgence? Then this will be your salvation. The Grilled seafood platter with all of those scallops and langostines are just what you should seek. Not to mention the squid ink linguine with mussles and calamari. The staff is more than helpful along with a great wine list of local vino.

The place is nice. It has great views and different set ups to accommodate different types of parties, like booths, round big tables, small regular tables. The menu has different alternatives for the different tastes. Really tasty plates and bread. We were there as a business lunch, in a party of 7, which means a more than average check. Despite...

This place was recommended by both our guide and our hotel. On the water, NY decor, great waiters, amazing wine and fabulous pasta. We tried both a white and red sauce….preferred the white (with portabella mushrooms) under specialties. Freshest pasta ever!!

It was our second time at this restaurant, with the children. On the other hand, two years ago, it was a good experience. But now, since the arrival until the end we felt a bit slighted. The wait was long and we were already suffering from excessive heat.But it got much worse when we sit. And I can not even... More

Great option in Puerto Madero. Ask for table by window; there are some booths with good views. Food was really good top to bottom. Shrimp salad was large and excellent and the spinach raviloi with bacon and chicken was great. Expansive wine list. Service at times slow yet this is Argentina. Comfortable atmosphere. Great dessert of strawberries and ice cream.

This is the kind of restaurant where you will feel homy. It is not expensive neither cheap but if you want to save some $$$, you csn go for lunch. At that time you can ask for a menu with a an entrance, main dish and a dessert (service included) for 15 usd more or less. You have to add... More

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighborhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
