We went here on the recommendation of our tour guide and it was really good. Our waiter was a lot of fun and the food was excellent. The ice cream with raspberry sauce was a special treat for dessert.

The food was mediocre, but the service truly stood out as terrible. Once we we were seated it took a while to take our order, and once we were served our entrees we were essentially ignored. We wanted dessert, but no one came to take...More

A nice Italian bistro with standard Italian offerings and a good wine list (the best pino grigio I was able to locate in any restaurant in Buenos Aires). Portion sizes are very large.

Love this restaurant in Buenos Aires. My flight attendant told me about it and it’s been a regular stop ever since. Nothing fancy but incredible food. Lasagna, ravioli, etc. cannot be matched.

We were pointed to this restaurant by someone who knows the city well, and we were not disappointed. The rigatoni is wonderful, as was the flan with dolche leche and caramel. That dessert is one everyone should try! Too bad we live thousands of miles...More

Had the lasagna and it was quite tasty. My friend had the deer stuffed pasta and was pleased. The service was subpar mostly due to attitude, which unfortunately is now expected. Freshly painted walls almost ruined the dining experience but the food won.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
