I was in town for an event and had driven past the restaurant a few times. I liked the look from the outside and as it was called The Family Giannone I thought it might be a good place to try. It was a few blocks from my hotel so I walked down. I arrived without a reservation and was directed to a nice table by the window and was given a menu. An excellent selection of Italian cuisine, some old standbys and others using locally grown items. I can manage Spanish but was not familiar with the word "gambi". The waitress attending me could not think of another word so she called a guy over who had been busy with other tables. He spoke in good English, not what I was after but if I get the chance, why not? We got the gambi thing sorted out and that is when I found out that Manuel, was the current owner of the restaurant after his father and after the founding family member who was Manuel's grandmother. Three generations of the same family in the same restaurant The food was outstanding the ambience very comfortable and the service was first rate. Manuel is a force, obviously very proud of his restaurant and his place in the chain of events.
My choice for the evening was a starter of garlic prawns followed up with a spinach pasta with locally grown Serrano mushroom sauce. Prior to the meal was bread with a mayonnaise/arucula spread and after the meal was Panna Cota with forest berries. I enjoyed a very pleasant Chardonnay that I had not yet heard of from Mendoza to slake my thirst. All the while Manuel was passing by to make sure all was in order as were the two waitresses. Not intrusively but at the ready to help.
I will visit again should I get the chance and I heartily recommend that you reading this do the same.

After having been in Argentina for a few weeks and at times struggling to make the server understand what you would like to order it was so refreshing to be able to order actually in English. And then the pizza came, and it was delicious. I can only recommend this place and will definitely be visiting them frequently.
