Friendly place with a pleasant atmosphere. Their menu is huge and they have a lot of Italian/argentine selections from pizza to pasta to Milanese and empanadas. Quite tasty. Great place to stop in for lunch with the kids.

The waiters are so gracious and the place is old fashioned with dark wood. Pick your own pastry from the selection offered. We just dropped in off the street as we were on our way to the botanic garden. We were glad we did.

We just stumbled in as we were exploring the neighborhood looking for a quick and easy place for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. The place itself is huge. Our server was friendly, and put up with my broken Spanish. The portions are huge, so order accordingly. We had a tuna Niçoise salad as a starter to be shared, cheese ravioli... More

Waited 40 minutes for a small cheese pizza on an evening when they were not busy. Finally gave up and left. The waiter and manager did not care.

We had just come off the airplane from an overnight flight and stopped at the closest place to our accommodations. It was a good choice. We didn't speak Spanish and the waitress didn't speak English. However they did have a menu in English so we were able to figure things out. We noticed that they did a lot of take... More

It's a very good place to eat if you're looking for big pieces of steak and home made chips. Prices are low in relation to the quality and flavour of the food. I suggest to order a plate to share cause they're really big!!! Also they include in their service as an appetiser, nuts chips garlic bread and home made... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
