“Phenomenal restaurant; incredibly warm hosts”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

What a welcome respite to what was otherwise a trip full of meals at steakhouses. Each dish was very tasty, well-presented, and paired with great wine. Our host, Camilo, was incredibly friendly and engaged us in conversation on more than one occasion throughout the meal. The open kitchen is a great touch. While most in Argentina eat on the later side, an earlier reservation was a welcomed surprise. Since we were the first ones served, we were the first ones to see each course as it came out of the kitchen. And the price is incredibly reasonable for a tasting menu (at least by New York City standards).

“Perfect Valentine's Celebration”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

My husband and I were in BA for our wedding anniversary on Valentine's Day. He planned the evening and chose this fabulous restaurant. It was romantic, it was a fabulous meal, it was the perfect evening. Rose petals were strewn on the path and up the steps to the lovely house that is I Latina. Were were greeted by the gracious host, one of the brothers who are the owners. The other is the fabulous chef. The food and gracious, unpretentious service was perfect. The food was one of the best meals we have ever experienced and we have had great meals all around the world. While did not think it was too expensive considering prices in BA and expensive restaurants we have visited in other cities. Especially when one considers that wine was included with the meal. And, the wine selections with each course were wonderful and generously poured! We recommended this restaurant to a couple we met on the cruise we took from BA who are from Columbia. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting BA. In fact, it is worth a trip to BA just to enjoy I Latina!

“Best Food in Town!!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We were not disappointed by our dining experience at I Latina. We were welcomed by the lovely hostess, who we were told is the owner's sister. She spoke excellent English and was very warm. As soon as we sat down, we were immediately greeted by the server, brought our first wine and our first course. Each course was better than the last! I would consider myself to be somewhat of a foodie. This place is not to be missed!
