“Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

We went to the Gioia Restaurante for Christmas Brunch. Although the price was high, the buffet choices were all firt class. It is located in the Palacio Duhau - Park Hyatt and the setting is beautiful. They have a regular dinner menu other nights and their buffet breakfast is incredible. Love the staff! Hope this helps.

“Outstanding Italian in Buenos Aires”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

Service was much improved from what others must have experienced. But the prices at the official exchange rate are very high. The Italian antipasto buffet was outstanding with a wide range of high quality selections of meats, seafood and cheeses. For entrees, the pasta dishes were imaginative, cooked al dente, and appealingly presented. The dessert selection was uniquely presented as small servings in large glasses. The wait service was attentive, but not all the staff had a high degree of fluency in English - but this is the Argentine and a smattering of basic Spanish truly helps. The decor matches the spacious elegance of the Park Hyatt to which the restaurant is attached. The terrazzos are attractive but beware that weather can be hot and humid in summer months and there is no outdoor cooling system.

“Fancy, yes fancy but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

We were there for early dinner with friends sometime ago and decided to have drinks and then try the buffet...oh well we have had better choices in any other restaurant in Buenos Aires, it was quite a disappointment! So, if you decide to eat there, make sure they are offering a la Carte when you visit!

“Love the food and ambiance!”

We tried this restaurant twice, one time for dinner and one for lunch and were equally pleased. The pasta was the best! The ambiance is nice too.
