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.

We ate here tonight and loved it. The staff spoke English and the owner was so gracious and spent time checking on us throughout the evening. We brought our own bottle and had that along with several wine pairings. We ate appetizers and had wine on his couch by the fire. The cannelloni and stuffed pork were delish! The desserts were great. We could have stayed for several more hours! The ambiance is great. One tip: pull the ring on a string when you arrive, that is their doorbell. Don't miss this experience!

This restaurant is definitely a MUST in Mendoza. Gonzalo is an excellent host that will make you feel welcome and at home. Dinner is a wonderful experience with different dishes with ingredients from all throughout Argentina. Amazing wines were served with the hors d'oeuvres (loved the torrontes!) and for the main course you may chose your wine from an exquisite boutique selection. Gonzalo is very knowledgeable and he will offer great advice regarding the wine pairing. A paramount experience!

Delicious food, fabulous atmosphere. It really feels like you're at a private dinner party in someone's home. Gonzalo is great and makes every guest feel at home. Don't miss this experience--it's well worth it.

Gonzalo opens up his home to diners and provides a delicious meal, great wine, and excellent company. Upon arrival diners meet each other in a cocktail party atmosphere and are served 2 hor devours - ceviche and a corn soup- along with a cocktail and a glass of white wine. Guests are then seated and their tables and are served 2 empanadas and a glass of rose, and can then pick an entree (filet mignon, trout, or vegetarian canneloni) and select a bottle of red wine. Next come 2 desserts along with champagne and an herbal tea. Everything was delicious and we ended up meeting another really interesting couple and sitting with them and chatting for over 3 hours. The dinner is 390 pesos per person which includes everything except for red wine if you chose to buy a bottle. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Mendoza, as it was by far the best meal we had during our time there.

My husband and I were greeted by Gonzalo back in March. It was a first class experience starting with prompt responses for reservations and clear directions to his house. Gonzalo and his staff were so welcoming throughout the night. We were served a multi-course dinner ranging from ceviche, empanadas, filet mignon and a chocolate dessert. We opted to eat dinner outside in his courtyard. Gonzalo also helped to select a wonderful bottle of Malbec to go with dinner. We also had a wonderful time mingling with the other guests as well. At the end, Gonzalo arranged a taxi for us to take us back to the hotel. If you haven't tried this unique experience yet, definitely do so!
