“Thieves”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

I would strongly advise against any visit to this restaurant. It is staffed by unfriendly and borderline unhinged bullies who treat the adjoining car park like a mafia state, waiting until unwitting tourists return to their cars following a meal elsewhere (if they have any sense), then locking the gates to prevent exit and extorting arbitrary charges. After expressing our displeasure and unwillingness to pay the unadvertised and frankly scandalous rate the 'proprietor' proceeded to use obscene language and threaten my girlfriend even after she had given up the point of principle and offered to pay their 'fee'. Good luck if you trust these people to behave in a civil manner should you pay them to cook and serve food for human consumption. Take your custom to the commendable Lo Stuzzichino over the road instead.

La informiamo che il parcheggio di cui lei si è servito senza chiedere permesso è condominiale e riservato solo ed esclusivamente ai clienti del ristorante "buenos aires" e non a quelli del ristorante di cui lei parla. Prima di sostare in un'area privata si informi, perchè potrebbe essere anche denunciato per violazione di domicilio! la sua recensione è menzognera, nonchè inopportuna su questo sito!!!! come fa ad esprimere un opinione sulla qualità del cibo, sul servizio e sulla cordialità dei camerieri, se lei non è mai stato nostro osite????

“This resaurant is not good”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

The meal i was served at this resaurant on the evening of 25.09.12 was very bad. I ordered a pasta dish and i suspect it was insuffieciently mircrowaved and I was ill for the next day. the service was sloppy and very unprofessional, not at all the level of service I have received at other restaurants in the area. St Agata is a very welcoming and vibrant area and this restaurant does not reflect this. Avoid at all cost

in qualità di proprietario e gestore, ringrazio per la recensione da lei pubblicata; ma forse avrebbe dovuto indirizzarla a qualche altro ristorante??? non la abbiamo mai avuta come ospite, dato che lei ha parlato di un microonde e noi non ne siamo provvisti e neppure ne abbiamo bisogno dato che tutti i nostri piatti sono preparati al momento utilizzando esclusivamente materie prime FRESCHE!

“Good atmosphere; good value eatery”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

We ate here several times, the menue is a mixture of holiday fare; burgers sandwhiches, and the unusual, try their delicious prawn soup for example. The pizzas are from a traditional wood oven and have a range of very tasty unuasual topings. One of the cheapest and best value places to eat in Sant Agata

“Good place for a cheap lunch”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Ended up here to get shelter from a huge thunderstorm and decided to eat. We were in the snack bar next to the restaurant, it's more of a shack with a very leaky roof, in fact there were rivers of water running through the seating area. It all added to the fun and they coped pretty well moving tables around. The food was great too, lovely home-made Lasagna and an excellent wood fired pizza. Add beers and coffee and all for EUR 20 made a very enjoyable lunch.

“suited us well”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

our family of four (2 kids, aged 12 & 17) stayed 2 weeks in St Agata, and ate at the Buenos Aires most days. It suited us so well we didn't go elsewhere. Very relaxed extended lunchtimes, and sometimes an evening beer. A garden setting, so it was cooler than other places to eat, and more attractive. Family ran, who welcomed us each time like friends, we got to know each member of the family.
