One of my favorite places in the world. True Italian with a touch of criollo mix taste... Try the Talirini Nero aragosta or the pasta tartufa... Clams in white wine... Excellent

One of the better restaurants in the city. I had a spaghetti dish and pizza. We spent around $120 for four people (four entrees, one appetizer, two beers, two mineral waters). I was impressed w their service. The manager was very pleasant.

Hi, sorry for the late respond. I was travelling:) I think that is a good option. It is elegant, but not too. It is a nice atmosphere and there is good and special food with good service at a good price.
