Description: Ituzaingo is a close doors restaurant in the most bohemian neigbourhood from Mendoza. The building is a loft wich shows real mendocinean lifestyle. The atmosphere is very eclectic style and combines artistic expresions (paintings and sculptures).The food is mostly tradional Argentine Cuisine in a real gourmet style. Wines are from the personal cellar of the owner (no wine list).The phrase for our concept is:¨Ituzaingo is a restaurante but still a house, welcome.

“Brilliant evening...wonderful setting, delicious food and great host!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

We had a fantastic evening in Gonzalo's charming and beautiful restaurant. He was a superb host and it was lovely being able to sit with some other diners for drinks and a bit to eat before our meal. The food was phenomenal, the steak main course was fantastic (quite possibly the best we've had out here!) and the dulce de leche trio of desserts was incredible. All in all a wonderful evening.

“Best night out in Argentina!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Great concept, great host and amazing wining and dining in this closed door restaurant in Mendoza. The atmosphere was very inviting, with all the guests sharing a "living room" for the first few courses. We met some very interesting people and chatted through the evening, only moving to out table for the main course, which was paired with an amazing blend wine from the hosts' collection. The whole experience was very welcoming and the food probably our best dinner in Argentina. Definitely recommended!

“BEST night in Mendoza - Best decision to go!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

My friend and I are avid travellers and have been to many cities, restaurants, adventures, etc - and I must say that going to this restaurant and meeting Gonzalo is at the top of the list. This was certainly the best night we had in Mendoza and really the best night in Argentina! We weren't sure what to expect, but arrived at Gonzalo's home to meet great people, the best cuisine possible, and overall a great experience. His home is amazing - the art and decor are simply beautiful and welcoming. We spent hours there and met some of the most interesting people, shared stories and laughs - and all of that in addition to the wonderful food and wine. I'm hoping to go back and see Gonzalo again! I would absolutely tell my friends and family this is a MUST when going to Mendoza. Thanks Gonzalo!
