This warm and romantic restaurant is the perfect spot in my favourite neighborhood, Palermo. Light, music, service and food is all balanced and presented with a perfect twist. Share the polenta as an appetizer. Go for any pasta course or have the tender and perfectly cooked (and grilled) octopus.

I was quite impressed by this modest Palermo restaurant. The staff and owner are really warm and friendly. I also really liked the interior design, very modest and had a sort of "Modern Farm Mill" feel. The pasta selection was vast, but it didn't disappoint when it came down to the specific details of every dish I saw on our... More

Not much I can add to others' reviews, but I feel like this had a particularly warm and intimate ambiance, so this would be perfect for a date. Very good service, excellent pastas, reasonable prices. A bit out of the way but worth the trek.

This is not my first time at the restaurant and i've always been wanting to write a review. The restaurant is great, one of the best in Buenos Aires.

One of the best italian restaurants I have been to. The food was an experience and the service very good. The Seafood Spagetti with Curry was incredible as well as the house made Limoncello. Do not confuse the Restaurant with the Grill with the same name around the corner.

We stumbled upon this one because it was right down the road from our hotel. Sooo glad we did! The food, wine & service were outstanding!! The place is so quaint with so much character. Try the shrimp risotto!

We had the recommended veal chop. Indeed it was enough for two. THe restaurant has an elegant interior. The service was impeccable. The food and wine selections were ordinary, but adequate. This place is a good value. You will get what you paid for and will leave satisfied.

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
