All Parolaccias are excellent, three or four in Puerto Madero, one in Palermo, one in Belgrano ... good food, big servings, good quality. Always crowded, that should give you a good hint.

I do not recommend I'm sure you can find better option in the beautiful neighborhood. The service was horrible. The food I couldn't eat (risotti di frutti di mare was tasting bad). A experience to not repeat. The music was too loud the wifi didn't work.

This is one of the best Italian's restaurant in town. I suggest like appetizer "El Antipasto" (for two but can eat three), also is good the mozzarella chesse with prosciuto. Among the many choices of paste the Lasagna bolognesa is very tasty. If you want can try the salmon and hale among other fishes. My favorite dessert in an Italian... More

Bad service, crowded, mid range quality, not a place to recomend. There are several better options. The pasta is good but not all of them.

I was there alone for a table and I realized a clear poor attention towards customers who are alone. They kept me waiting for a table (and there were several tables available in the restaurant) while couples and large groups were settled down. I waited for 15 min and then I gave up and visited another restaurant.

La Parolaccia, in Puerto Madero, is in the midst of some of the fanciest and most fashionable restaurants in Buenos Aires. Their meat, ojo de bife (super filet mignon) and lomo,(filet mignon) two of their best. The french fried potatoes, or chips as we say in the UK perfectly cut in size. perfectly cooked to the right degree in good... More

I travel to Buenos Aires a couple of times a year for work and my favorite italian restaurant is La Parolaccia. Great food, atmosphere and attention. I highly recommend the Ragu al vitello with Penne Rigatti.

Had dinner here this past Sunday evening and the food was delicious. Started with the Antipasto and for dinner had the Spinach Gnocchi (Great dish, something different than I have ever had). This restaurant was very nice on the water in the Puerto Madero neighborhood.

The restaurant is located in Puerto Madero where most of the other restaurants are much more expensive. It is not bad, but not great by Italian food standards. I had friend squid and zucchini followed by the sorrentino pasta. Both were slightly overdone! The service was very good. But if you want to eat your meal in peace, then get... 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.
