The salmon tasted surprisingly fresh, perfectly cooked. The waiters were genuine, helpful and honest. They charge 32 pesos (USD$2.06 or €1.95) per person table cost, but this is clearly stated in English on their menu in big prints. Moderately fast and stable free wifi for customers. Good location along the Main Street. They accept credit card payment.

Good choice of dishes that are not the common standard these days. Pasta portions are small and not intended to be a main course but rather the Italian way as a starter.

It was a recommendation from the tour guide. The pasta is handmade and taste very good. Spanish skills are better, but English went well.

Yeah, we have finally found god pasta in Argentina. Imagine that you have to travel for it to Patagonia. Restaurant is small and cozy. Seems be always full of people, quite often queuing in front of it. We tried ravioli with spinach under some creamy, tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese. It was well prepared and very tasty, not over cooked... More

Wonderful pasta! Restaurant is packed but we did not need reservations as we were able to get a table for 6 people. Creative sauces, delicate homemade pasta, wonderful bread, extensive wine list. Reasonably priced for a tourist town. Friendly wait staff.

The wait staff was very welcoming and helpful. We sampled several of the pastas and they provided extra dishes to make sharing easier. The food was good, but not exceptional and could have been served hotter.

Steaks were overcooked, although we ordered medium-rare. Flavor was ok. Would not recommend to dine here.

We tried different types of pasta in this restaurant. They have a special offer in the menu which they call "degustation menu". You can select two different types of pasta. The Ravioli was average. The tagliatelle was better. Prices were high.

A friend and I split the Crepes del Campo and the pasta tasting dishes. Both were delicious. The cover charge was a little pricey but overall worth it. Could work for families. Nice wait staff.
