This authentic Italian restaurant is located in the heart of downtown district, and is well known for its brick oven baked pizza and multilingual staff. The menu features novel variations on Italian pasta classics, brick oven baked pizzas, and a wealth of seafood, chicken and beef entrees. For dessert, try the succulent Italian-Porteña ice cream sundae. The cheap prices and street side ambiance keep this among the top Italian restaurants in the city.
My husband and I ate this restaurant after having asked our driver for a recommendation for a good Italian restaurant that the "locals" liked. When the taxi pulled up at the front of the restaurant we knew we had been directed to exactly what we were looking for - a quaint, understated, friendly, Italian restaurant. We only speak and read English, but had not problem understanding the menu - and got exactly what we ordered. My husband had linquine with meat sauce and a ceasar salad and I had the lasagna and a mixed salad. The croutons were picked off of the caesar salad [because that's what he always does]. The tomatoes and thin sliced onions in my salad were so fresh and flavorable it was unbelievable! The lazagna was fabulous! We had a bottle of Argentine wine with our meal. After the meal we enjoyed lemon ice and Lemonc lli Citrus Liqueur [a drink we were introduced to on the Amalfi Coast in Italy]. Our waiter was exactly what who we would have requested if we had been given a description and instructed to make our choice. He was very friendly and very service oriented. I believe he knew when we walked in the door that we were there to have an enjoyable time and he set out to make it just that! He figured out immediately that we love Italian food. Our experience was fantastic.
I visited this restaurant with a friend to celebrate my birthday. I ordered a starter which was supposed to be sweet peppers stuffed with cheese and in a spicy sauce. I got the sweet peppers and cheese but instead of the spicy sauce the were deep fried in bread crumbs - not as described on the menu. I do not like bread crumbs so picked them off. What was left was mediocre. When I picked my main course I could not decide between lasange or super lasange (which had ham and mushrooms). I asked if the super lasange had meat sauce and I was told that it had what I was not told was that it had chicken and riccotta cheese in it. The meal was bland, there was very little meat sauce and the lasange sheets were thick and doughy. I picked at it - I ate the ham, meat sauce and mushrooms. When I complained I got no satisfaction and was directed to their website. They were not interested in making me feel better obviously I was a tourist and not repeat busness. Which I have tried to access but to no avail. I feel that the service was poor and I ended up having a very disappointing night. I was in South America for over a month and this was the worst meal and service that I recieved!
