“Buenos Aires Buono!”

Happened upon this little gem as we wandered the quaint streets of the Navigle district. We had jokingly said we were craving something other than the Italian fare that presents itself in abundance, and then we spotted this single store front. So glad we did, as this was a special experience. The exterior is classy, the interior is quirky & the empanadas are exquisite. We ordered 2 empanadas each - sampling across the menu. I particularly loved the chorizo & my friends said the vegan & spicy pork were both wonderful. They have a great range of Argentinian wine to try & I would certainly go back and do this if I had time.
What made the experience so great was the server. He clocked Vanda had great Italian & came over to find out her story. And then they had a lovely chat about what it means to have your heart in two countries. This guy is wonderful, & he even sent over a complimentary cake for the three of us to round off our meal.
This is great value, great taste & great heart. You need to try it! In a world where pasta is king & the tomato rules the waves, go off piste & experience a little Buenos Aires. The music alone will get your heart singing!

I went here on dinner some time ago. The place is small but nice, the owner is a very friendly guy and the empanadas are quite good. We didn't spend much and had a great time.
Definitely recommended.

Walking down Ripa Di Port Ticinese, we saw this place that had empanadas. Upon entering we saw that hey had a good variety of empanadas. So we tried 5 different ones. They also had many wine selections and beer.
Would definitely go back again.
