It’s a typical Argentinian restaurant with good food and good wine. If I’d have to find something wrong it’s quite difficult, maybe the bill is more high but I can suggest to all of you to visit it.

One of the best Argentinian Restaurants where you can find real typical Steaks! You have to book the table before for sure, otherwise you have to be so lucky if you can find a table. You can easily find the right dish in the menu...More

Nice indoor environment, spacious table and sufficient level of privacy. Food is of discrete quality and portions are fair. Pricing is a bit pretentious in particular for wines. Good choice for tasting Argentinian kitchen.

Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds
to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria
Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
