“Marvelous!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

After a walk by San Telmo on a hot, hot, Sunday, this restaurant was just the cherry on top a perfect day.

I ordered the calabaza ravioli with spinach sauce and the taste was indescribable! My sister ordered spinach cannelloni and they were just as good. My dad ate meat and it was the only place in BA that got it right with the cooking point of the beef. The only tiny tiny downside was the service, which was good, but not up to par with the rest of BA. Still, do not walk, do not collect $200, just GO.

“Delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor during out recent trip and stopped in mid-day for lunch. We got the ravioli with shrimp and garlic. Also ordered a vegetarian penne pasta and a bottle of wine. Excellent service. White table cloths in a rich, dark wood setting. Great service. Total bill came to about $70 US. Would definitely go back again.

“wonderful conversion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is owned by Hugo, the owner of La Brigada steak house a block or two away. It does pasta very well, I don't understand why it is not as popular as La Brigada but they have restored mansion with care to keep a lot of its original features. Good Italian food, I just wish it attracted more customers, I've been there a few times and it was never busy. Pity.
