Unfortunately this was our west meal in Argentina (on a 2+ week trip) and the most expensive. Food quality was extremely sub par, over cooked and mass produced. Lamb in the lasagna was mushy, steak on the overcooked risotto tasted like it came from a...cafeteria. We came on New Years where there was a set menu. $65 USD per person and we received a less than 400 peso bottle of wine? Tip (servicio) is typically not included, and was noted on the billfold that 10% is standard, tonight, 15% was automatically included on the bill, which I’ve never seen. Awful atmosphere and terrible experience. We couldn’t get out of there fast enough.More

After 3 weeks of travelling in Argentina, including remote places in the North, this was by far the worst dining experience of our trip. The bread was stale, the rocket, fig and prosciutto starter was unedible in my opinion and my pasta main course was...mushy and tasteless. All in all a very disappointing meal which was not cheap either. Please don’t waste your money here, there are plenty of amazing places to eat in Buenos Aires.More

We went Saturday night. We order 1 starter and then we wait 30 minutes for the main course. The wine list was very limited. Next day I finished in the hospital, something was not so good about the food. I had lamb and my boyfriend...rabbit. Taste was ok but apparently no very healthy.More

Very good lasagna with lamb. Overall the cost ended up quite high. AR 1500 for 2 with wine and desert. Great atmosphere and reasonable service.

Our young male waiter was very helpful and welcoming. We had two pasta dishes: the malfatti were tasty, while the pappardelle al pesto lacked flavour. Servings were plentiful. Green salad was fresh and light. Tiramisu was excellent! Overall, we were happy with restaurant, and thought...we'd come again. When the bill arrived the waitress made a strong point of explaining that the suggested tip, which appeared on the bill, was 10%. Now, I thought that the amount of the tip was traditionally at the customer's discretion. We don't like to be told what to tip. On closer inspection of the bill, we also noticed that we had been charged for lemon (for the salad). There was also no 20% deduction for payment in cash (this promotion was advertised at the door). When we enquired about the promotion, the waitress had to check with the manager, who replied that it would be 10%! Having had an overall enjoyable meal, we left feeling somewhat cheated and disinclined to return. What a pity - it's a local restaurant for us.More

It was quite overpriced for average Italian food. We went for a friends birthday and it was rather expensive for nothing extravagant.

Extremely average itlalian food. Watery sauces and less than flavorful pastas with philadelphia cream cheese and dinner rolls to start. It's fine but don't waste your money here when Buenos Aires has such amazing italian food to offer elsewhere.

I like this restaurant, the ambiance is very Italian with pictures from all mafia movies. I loved cream cheese with olives with the courtesy bread We asked for caneloni with spinach and ricotta and it was delicious, tomato sauce for spaghettis was soft and rich....I asked veggies grilled and I liked Tiramisu was the best!!! If you like pasta you are going to enjoy it!More

Went here with a friends on a Friday night. Showed up around 9:30pm with no reservation and got a table upstairs. Our server was a young kid, probably had a few too many tables but he was a good kid and worked very hard. There...were 6 of us so he was busy. Appetizers were lovely and I had lamb lasagna for my main course. We also had a very good dessert. Overall, very good. Not great, but very good.More

The food is really good. We had four different entrees and everyone was happy. The anti pasta starter was amazing. Next time I'm only having wine and that! It's a lot if food. The restaurant is really adorable inside and service was great too.
