Make sure if you plan to eat here to book the balcony seats if there is just 2 of you. The balcony overlooks plaza dorrego which is the busiest on Sunday during the San Telmo flea market. Our pasta and risotto were flawless, bread and starters were ok too. The view of the plaza is fabulous and beats everything else

Booked in advance,requesting balcony table,as recommended by other T.A. reviews.Very pleasant eating outside,but could not see anything in Plaza Dorrego,due to trees! Also no tango,just heavy metal group playing quite loud! Restaurant itself, is good.Only complaint,waiter took our order,without writing anything down. Needless to say,he brought my wife, a dish she had not ordered. Food quite good, but would not go overboard about it. Would recommend,but not to go too far out of your way.

Lovely italian upstarts just off plaza deffensa. We went on a Sunday when the antique and crafts market was on. Well worth a visit. Fresh pasta and the tiramisu were superb.

We somewhat nervously sought non parilla food after a disaster night in Palermo trying to do the same thing 2 nights ago. Fortunately, tonight was a winner.

Friendly service, our waiter went through the menu with us - traditionally safe Italian, what we ate was tasty and well prepared and presented in manageable proportions. The entrees list is limited and I would advise skipping, as the dessert list is great - if only we'd known earlier!

We both had seafood pastas that were both excellent - tagliatelle with seafood with zucchini and white wine and mine, linguine in squid ink and a tomato sauce with seafood - excellent.

Bread selection is great, though is charged for as you discover later in the night, but the limoncello is complimentary.

We ate here on a Friday and sadly the restaurant was near empty which was surprising and so it didn't have the atmosphere it deserved.

Well worth a visit !
