Had a very nice meal here. Home made pasta, a good bottle of italian wines and creamy deserts. Service was friendly and past. Not too much space for parking. Close to llao llao resort, concierge can make reservations for you.

We had a wonderful meal here while staying at the Llao Llao resort. Free transfers from the resort. Delicious food and wine. I had the ossobuco which was superb, trout was also very good.

My boyfriend and I went there for our last dinner in Bariloche and everything went fantastic. The waitress spoke English so she really helped us to pick the perfect dish. The menu doesn’t have many options, but the food quality is absolutely incredibly. We had a delicious bottle of Luigi Bosca Malbec , highly recommended. Hopefully we will go back... More

Probably one of the best Italian meals 'ever' combined with sterling service and a fantastic wine list. The ambiance was extraordinary, the menu written in chalk as it changes frequently and all pastas made fresh each day.
