We first went here in 2008 and recently returned. We love the great food and ambience. It seems like a place where the locals eat and not so touristy. Reservations are helpful. You can't go wrong at Sotto Voce.

This is the second time I visited this restaurant after a memorable visit in 2008. The restaurant was busy again with locals and tourists. Beautiful "old colonial" style laid out over 2 floors. The menu is mostly beef based (well it is Argentina) but there were chicken and pasta also menu. I chose lomo in marsala and it was superb....cooked to perfection. I followed this with pannacotta!!!! Service was excellent and attentive. One thing to watch out for.....wine list is huge and when I asked for a recommendation, he brought, opened and served the most expensive wine on the menu (AR$ 365) albeit I take full responsibility as I never checked the price (nor did he offer to tell me). No worry as wine was a fantastic malbec and was worth the expense!

Great upstairs dining room for a large (corporate?) gathering, great service, good wine, and reasonable prices.

BUT, there is much more authentic, unique and delicious Italian in BA. If traveling with a small group (or just a couple), hop a cab into palermo hollywood or palermo soho and find a small, less touristy place to eat great Italian with an Argentine flair.

Sottovoce.....situated on the delightful Puerto Madero walkway offers a wonderful outdoor patio, elegant but comfy....service that makes you want to return before you even try the Delish pastas, fish and amazing veal dishes.....and once you try them, you have to come back . Wow! The best parpadelle with mushrooms, grouper, veal liver...we had to return for a second evening....thank you ! ,

It's above average based on the wonderful service and hospitality, but with all the people of Italian descent in South America, why can't they make great Italian food?
