Good service, good tables on the second floor. Main dishes boring and bland. Good salads .

First 2 choices of wine not in stock ... As usual

Located in the heart of Palermo Hollywood, the restaurant offers Italian cuisine. Elegant, but not pretentious, it offers a nice ambiance and a fantastic, prompt, courteous and friendly service. The menu covers it all, from pasta (dry and home-made fresh) and pizza thru fish and meat, naturally. Prices for food is pretty friendly considering the city, the area and the restaurant, itself. Portions of pasta are very, very generous and in some cases are pretty shareable. Extensive wine list features the local wines at somewhat expensive prices - I paid for a 3/8 bottle of a regular, not premium, malbec some US$ 12, which is way too much. Have in mind before ordering a starter that the covert is delicious and abundant and, therefore, may save you some money while preserving room for what follows.

Based on the recommendation of our concierge, our party ventured out to Il Gran Caruso, 5805 El Salvador, at the corner of Carranza...here, in the Hollywood section of Palermo awaits a wonderful surprise if you're looking for a complete menue and excellent, excellent food and service. I'd recommend the website, grancaruso.com.ar in anticipation of your visit. It is one of the most accurate sites in terms of conveying the sense and heart of the restaurant as well as good photos and descriptions. While I enjoyed an excellent braised lamb dish, the others in the party had equally wonderful selections. We each tried the others, and each brought the comment that we wished we could have ordered the others' as well! Excellent, friendly servers, decor was elegant...and relaxiing. Highly recommend !

Nice place with OK food. Of course, I ordered something I've never had before so that could be the reason it was not quite as expected.
