“Another excellent Italian dinner in BA”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

A great restaurant to sample wonderful Italian food. The risottos and pastas are the house specialty.
Make sure to share your meal with a fellow dinner as portions tend to be quite large. When making a reservation make sure to be placed in a corner of the room since the noise level will rise as
patrons arrive. This place is frequented by the local portenos and the staff
knows them well! Great selection of wines to choose from for a delicious meal.

“Over egged”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

With a large group at this restaurant
Appetisers ... Empanada, ham and cheese thing and a spinach fritter ... All ok
Then had spinach tortini and they were ok, but too many
Ice cream with berries made a simple but good dessert
I wouldn't go again

“Do not miss Piegari if you are in Buenos Aires”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Very good service. Portions are really big - if you are from Europe, share 1 portion for two. Again, if you are from Europe, and you order meat, keep in mind that they have a tendency to cook more than what you are used to. So if you want "medium", order medium rear to get what you wanted. Cash tip 10% is a must in Argentina. Very good selection of wines. Take advise from personnel. They will make you good suggestions. Their aim is to make customer satisfied, not to empty his pocket. Risotto and pasta are delicious. Chef from Italy. Enjoy every bit!

“BEST IN TOWN”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Piegari is an INCREDIBLE place to eat. The food is DELICIOUS and the server was very helpfull with my lack of spanish. It is located at the most exclusive neighbour in Buenos Aires.
I had an amazing pasta with a great wine. For sure I will go back again as soon as I return to Argentina.

“Excellent choice of Italian restaurant in Buenos Aires”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We had dinner with two colleagues at Piegari; a great experience. Friendly welcome, complementary aperitif, forthcoming staff, the food really good. As previous reviewers pointed out, the prices are on the higher side, but it didn't feel overpaid to me, not just because the portions were good. Everything seems to fit in this place - the staff, the food, the atmosphere, the whole place is very nicely lit and decorated. Would surely come back to this great restaurant.
