The owner is so charismatic and such a sweet guy- eager to please and make sure you leave with a happy face- and it works. Food is delicious. Steak cooked to perfection and their house potatoes are to die for. Great wine, delicious chocolate mouse dessert. Highly recommended.

Short version: just go and enjoy a delicious food! A cozy 10 tables restaurant where the owner (Mr Alberto) take the orders with kindness and joyful explanation about the dishes. He loves kids and my 2y son liked him too. Everything was great (couvert, grape fondue, fraudinha steak, artisanal pasta and hand made strawberry pie, everything for 710 pesos or... More

Don't expect to get out of here in less than a couple hours. The eccentric owner goes to every table and painstakingly describes each item on the menu for the day. Menu changes day to day. Great food that's different from the steak/pasta/pizza copycats everywhere else. Good wifi. A bit pricey.

Alberto is amazing, and so is the food. Kept a (-in- parts- fussy) London family very happy! Warm, amusing, delicious and great value! Thanks!

Went there for dinner with family. Very friendly atmosphere with suggestions of the day by the Italian Chef. Food was excellent. Kids enjoyed, really enjoyed, the pasta. Excellent Malbec served per glass, something unusual in Puerto Iguazu. Despite the lack of coffee (how possible for an Italian style restaurant??) I strongly recommend this place. My kids said this was the... More

We went for dinner here while in Puerto Iguazú and were pleasantly surprised. The menu is useless, just ask for what they have that day, which are the things that are fresh. The personality of the owner is charming and he will make you want to order everything they order! I had the best chorizo I've ever had here! Then... More

We had a great night of food and entertainment from the host. One of the most friendliest people we met on our trip. He recommended to us some food off the menu, and we were not disapointed we had the Gnocchi and Fish which were both made fresh and very tasty. The host had us laughing with tales of his... More

Food was delicious. We ate what the guy recommended to us. Beef steak. We enjoyed the evening and had a nice time. Even if he served us beer in glasses for wine the evening was nice 😬

Considering that this is not the most lively of cities, i must say we were positively surprised by the restaurant. The food was very good, the owner very friendly and in general the atmosphere good

Fantastic service and food! We felt extremely welcome and got a few small and delicious starters as a treat. We had the rump steak and it was probably the best steak I've ever had. Will defineatly come back!
