This restaurant has good Italian food for a nice price. The wine list includes high quality Argentinean wines for all pockets. The place is nearby the famous San Telmo Fair, so try to avoid Sundays.

My first night in Buenos Aires I found this quintessential Italian restaurant. Everyone was very friendly and the food was excellent. I had the eggplant parmesan and I saw other people ordering other dishes that looked mouth watering. If I am in the area I will definitely go back!

Very good starters and pasta on the second floor overlooking Plaza Dorrego. Highly recommend a stop there if going through the San Telmo Market on a Sunday as it is a really nice break with a broad menu of fresh main courses

Friendly staff and great Italian food, portions are smaller than the standard Argentinian size, but still adequate. Glad to find it if you have had enough of the standard meat fests that you get served.

Best italian restaurant in all of Buenos Aires!!! I am vegetarian so it was really difficult for me to eat in BA. However after much research I came here hoping for your basic average italian only to be blown away by the great staff, great atmosphere, good prices, great wine and delicious vegetarian options!!

We gave this restaurant a go despite mixed reviews and our experience was extremely mediocre. The service was very poor, slow and uncharacteristically unfriendly for Buenos Aires. The pasta dishes we ordered were plain. The location is great, particularly if you're setting on the balcony, however with so many good restaurants in San Telmo, I recommend you give this one...

We had very good Italian for dinner at Amici Miei. We took the recommendations from the owner/chef, and we were glad we did. The appetizers were incredible -- the Porcini mushrooms and the salami were really great. We shared 3 pasta dishes (which comprise the vast majority of the menu) among 4 of us, which was more than plenty. The... More

Good food spoiled by attitude. On arrival we were asked if we had booked (there were only 3 tables being used and it was 8pm). When we said not we were dismissed over to a table. The background music was jazz... not to everyone's taste, especially mine. The waiting staff stood opposite our table the whole time they weren't waiting... More

Staying in San Telmo

Neighborhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
