We found this place during one of our trips to Buenos Aires 2 years back and keep coming every time we are back to Argentina. Located right in the heart of the San Telmo market with view on the square this place is a proof to the Italian influence in Argentinian culinary culture. A must if you're only 2 people... More

I ordered the spaghetti with sausage and my friend got the gnocchi with 4 cheese sauce. It was incredible and we inhaled it! Fresh pasta, good wine, friendly service that was very attentive. I highly recommend!

Nice location overlooking Plaza Dorrigo. The restaurant is upstairs so you know that as there is no lift. Nice view over the Plaza. Get a balcony table if you can. The food is ok not special.

Group of six for casual Sunday lunch - pre-booked; Overall food was good - very generous portions. Reasonable wine list. Air con a bit too cool for our liking. Pleasant but not spectacular.

Up until now, my best risotto experience was in Venice. But Amici Miei's mushroom risotto was as good, if not better. Their wine list is first rate, and the location in the heart of San Telmo made for a memorable lunch.

Visited a few years ago. Ask for a table with a view of San Telmo market. A nice little spot for homey, Argentinian/Italian food. Bold flavours. A locals destination that is a hit with tourists. Enjoy.

The restaurant is on the 1. floor in an old colonial building. The interior of the place is stylish and modern. We were lucky and got a table on the balcony overlooking the street and the square. Super - Romantic! And our food was extremely delicious and arrived steaming. Go to the "Amici Miei" - you will love it! 1000... More

Lovely food, homemade pasta dishes full of flavour. The service is attentive and just right. If you can grab a seat on the balcony that way you get to take in the hussle and bustle of the market from above, with the street sellers and the magicians. This is a lovely place to while away a few hours over Sunday... More

I went for lunch on Sunday, it's a little bit crowed, but the wait is worth. Very tasty! And the attention was very good. Delicious meal

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
