The best veal chop ever! Super waitress and terrific atmosphere. Doesn't get much better than this until you get to a Michelin 3 star restaurant in France.

We came in late and had a great dinner. Food is excellent. Excellent pasta and the home made tiramisu at the end was superb. Highly recommend. Loved the decoration as well.

I went with my husband for dinner, we tought that pasta was home made/fresh, but it wasnt... The food was good, but not enough for the wait (always more than 50 mins).. and kind of expensive.

Nice place to have some pastas or milanesas. The place is full of Argentinos and latinos. Try with some Malbec wine. In general all the food is very good. Very nice decoration.

As an aficionado of Buenos Aires, and its italian nature, it was no surprise that Prima Pasta an Italian restaurant owned by Argentines, should remind oneself of similar restos in Palermo. This has been around for 23 years and the new crop of young waiters...More
