This overlooked jewel of the town does not have the touristy allure you'll find in other places--large signs in English and buffets. But the pasta here is quite possibly the best I've ever had in my life! The service is great and the quaint and intimate space is ideal for a quiet dinner out. You can choose your type of... More

Excellent empanadas to go!!! It's a very cute place with great empanadas and great prices! We had the carne, corn, and pollo empanadas, which they even heated up for us. Pesos only, I believe.

We purchased a savoury tart which was half half pumpkin and spinach. They heated it, gave us forks, great takeaway meal. Also serving home made pastas.

Definitely did not expect to find such an amazing pasta dish when we spent the weekend in Iguazu, but can honestly say it was some of the best I've ever had in my life, let alone in Argentina. Incredible food, nice wine, cheap prices, and friendly people working there - it's more set up as a place to order food... More

This place had some of the best and fresh pasta we had on our trip to Argentina. But with that in mind, it wasn't really a restaurant, more inline with a takeout place. But there were tables and the food was very economical. And worth the stop!

There's not a lot of vegetarian food in Iguazu our hotel did not have a single thing on the menu. This place has the best Italian in Iguazu, all homemade fresh pastas as many options for vegetarians. The gnocchi's have spinach and pumpkin flavours, the service was lovely despite speaking no English. Highly recommend.

Absolutely fantastic food. Fresh home made pasta with beautiful sauces, nice wine, lovely friendly accommodating waitress. Even when she couldn't understand our English very well she did her absolute best to get us what we wanted. And the cost - unbelievably cheap. You must go there if you stay in the town of Iguazu.

A nice little shop run by a charming lady making great pastas. Ask to customize the pasta just as you want it and thou shalt have what you asked for..! Ate there 3 days out of the 5 I lunched in the city!!

Went here twice during our stay. First time we picked up a chicken tart and a couple empanadas to take to iguazu. They were great and super filling - the chicken tart was huge, about half a kilo and was more than enough for both my husband and I to be full until dinner. Went back to try the pasta... More
