We went here with a travel study group while staying at the Llao Llao resort. The evening was great, the food very good , and the ambiance warm and welcoming. It is difficult for me to rate the food since the courses ranged from good to spectacular. All in all, I would recommend this charming, welcoming Italian restaurant outside Bariloche.

We enjoyed dining here very much - it's a really lovely restaurant. The server was excellent, taking time to explain all of the dishes to us in English and offering suggestions. 3 of us had a wonderful caprese salad with buratta cheese while my younger son ordered the grilled octopus which I assumed would be in many small pieces, but...

Maybe because this was not our first choice for the night and because the restaurant we wanted to go was booked and (Butterfly) they recommended Il Gaggiano. It just was not their night. The special meat ravioli was dry it. The tiramisu had so much chocolate powder that it caused coughing fits at the table. The poll of the nine... More

We enjoyed our meal here so much that we went back again a day later. Some of the best Italian food imaginable in or out of Italy in a wonderful, quiet, romantic setting. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. If you are in the area, don't miss this restaurant.

Great Italian food. You will never be dissapointed by their pasta or desserts. Now, if you are a foreigner that wants to try the best Argentinean wines, this is probably the best place out of Buenos Aires or Mendoza. Any amazing number of top brands and wines.

Home made pasta, stunning sauces, great ambience, delightful waiting staff who speak English well. Love to go somewhere that the waiter knows about wine as well. Go there if you can!

After so much steak, this was a refreshing change of pace. Great Italian food and service near downtown!

We visited this cute restaurant- it was really nice - first courses about 70-85 Pessos and the mains are 110-140. We took the shrimp and avocado starter- was tasty and the trout ceviche was way too salty and soaked in lemon. Not a great dish . For the mains we took the trout ( over done and nothing special) and... More

We LOVED it here! We were able to charge it to our room at Llao Llao, and the owner of the restaurant came and picked us up and brought us home. The place itself is charming and romantic, with rose petals on the table, candles, etc. The plants, landscaping, etc is fabulous. We loved our meal and we loved the... More

Wonderful meal, adorable setting, and excellent service. Complimentary car service from Llao Llao resort and a very nice change of scenery. The shrimp & avocado starter was simple, but impeccable. And the pastas are incredible. Ambiance is really cute as well.
