Had a great lunch at Cucina Paradise. The tagliatelle with pesto sauce was great. Price a little steep but worth every penny for the great taste and attentive service. Managed to seat outside on a nice afternoon. Was the only customers at noon. After finishing our lunch, the place was starting to get full inside.

This is a lovely place to enjoy lunch or dinner. The food is lovely and the service just right. It's definitely high end and pasta dishes, although good, are a little prices at c.280. That's said its a lovely experience and has a good wine selection.

We enjoyed an amazing meal at Cecina Paradiso. Both my husband and I were impressed with the fresh pasta and the delicious flavours. It's a tiny restaurant, and full of charm. It was full by 8:15, so be sure to get there early. I highly recommend it!

Chef Donato de Santis is a well renowned chef for Italian food. The Cucina Paradiso is one of two of his restaurants in Buenos Aires. The restaurant is located on Arevalo street and has only 24 seats, but the food is excellent. I ate the menu of the day (350 pesos) which include an appetizer with raw ham, búfala cheese... More

I have been to this place multiple times, and the last trip I had the opportunity to chat with the owner and got even a better impression of the place. I think its a must if you are in Palermo. The menu changes daily.

We had a good dinner here. The restaurant is a small Italian deli that has tables set up in the evening for a higher end sit-down dinner. Very creative. They don't speak English but you should be able to recognize most pasta dishes and order easily. The staff was also very friendly (despite our terrible attempts at Spanish!). The food... More

We ate here two nights ago. We walked right by the place thinking it was a wine store. So, like I said, do not expect anything fancy. This is an Italian Deli with a few tables to accommodate people who know good food. I had the Salmon and Risotto. I could not make up my mind, so I ordered both.... More

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.
