This place was recommended to us by locals and we love it from first visit. Everything we ordered was delicious, meat, grilled vegetables, chees, house wine...just perfect. After visiting some other places, fine restaurants and parillas, we came back again, because this place seems to...More

I found La Hormiga passing bu it. The menu has various options rangong from parrilla to pasta. There are lots of young people and good music. I had the spinach gnocchi with an Imperial beer, that was good! La Hormiga is worth a try!

The food was good--not great, but good. The prices are quite reasonable, especially for the neighborhood. The main drawbacks are that it's loud and hot.
