“Outstanding pasta (VERY fresh)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

I knew of this place both from a NY Times review and from a friend -- I went with one other person and had a pasta entree "to die for" -- it was parpadelle (sp?) with a variety of mushrooms. Could not ask for a better pasta meal followed by hard-to-result dulce de leche ice cream dessert. Life is good.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

I din't like give bad reviews.
It looks more like a storical restaurant. We had 2 pastas which were nothing close to a real pasta asciutta -we both are italians- the sauces were ok but the quality of pasta, god it was terrible!!
The price: we generally never look at the price too much but when it is overpriced we want to tell it straight away.
We would not reccomend this place to any friends.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

We booked a table for three for 8pm and were the first to arrive, knowing that most Argentinians don't eat until later. However, the restaurant soon filled out on a Tuesday evening.

The food really is excellent, with a good choice of vegetarian pasta dishes. Our bill (three main courses, two desserts & drinks, including a bottle of wine) came to 600 pesos.

Highly recommended.

“Two great restaurants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

This is a great restaurant in Buenos Aires. Excellent food, terrific place to eat out. The same owners have an even better restaurant one block away: Fervor, with a very refined, yet local flavor and outstanding dishes. One of the best in town (and I lived in BsAs for 45 years).
