We were here during low season (May 2017) on a slow night - Tuesday. Believe the reviews, the food was pretty good. I had a taglietelle with zuccini and shrimp and it was delicious! Husband had the canneloni with mushroom and pork, and while it was very tasty - just not a meaty dish but still nice. Limoncello was excellent... More

We were referred by our hotel concierge. We had lunch here. The homemade fresh pasta was superb. We were seated at a table were they make the pasta in house. Our kids enjoyed watching them hand roll the dough and prepare our lunch. They loved it so much they ordered more. Service was wonderful. We were visiting from Florida and... More

Had a late lunch in the sun on one of the small balconies after a day strolling around the city. Best lunch we had in BA during our stay. Great atmosphere overlooking the plaza and wonderful food.

We've dined in many restaurants and love Italian food. Of course, the best of this is to be found in Italy itself. But out of it, Amici Miei is certainly the best we've ever been to. We were there for a Sunday lunch and it was a wonderful experience. We had a salmon carpacio for starters and a couscous Sicilian... More

Went there for a late lunch. The wait staff was friendly but did not speak much English. That really didn't matter. The House salad for one was more than enough for two and great. I don't use this phrase much but the risotto was to die for. Totally perfect. We split it but and was more than enough. We should... More

The second floor restaurant is right to the Dorrego square, and if you get one of the three patio table (for only 2), you can hear and even look at the tango dancing at the square. At the end of the lunch it got too hot though and we moved inside. The food is really good and service to match... More

This was a last minute decision to eat on our last night in town since we were all gassed from walking and being in the sun. Fast service and friendly staff. Separate Spanish and English menus which worked out for our bad Spanish speaking group.

We had Sunday lunch here this week. It was a lovely experience. The staff were on the ball, the food was really good, as was the recommended wine. Would definitely recommend.

One of the best Italian restaurant that I have eaten in Buenos Aires and many other cities. Great pasta and good friendly service. It was not to expensive compare Buenos Aires standards.

We sat on a miniature balcony (one table for two) at this upstairs restaurant. It is a nice place without being at all stuffy or pretentious and the pastas were superb.

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.
