Must go while in BA! Argentina has deep Italian roots and Amici displays the Italian influenced. Opposite of San Telmo's Plaza Dorrego, Amici is one of the best restaurants in BA. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and amazing food. I've visited Rome twice and live in NYC; Amici compares almost equally to Rome's cuisine. Order any of the seafood pastas and... More

As a person that works in Italy, I try to avoid Italian places while traveling that I am not familiar with or given a trusted recommendation to. This place was great, the ambience was romantic and fun, and it doesn't hurt that the food was really good at a reasonable value.

We were very happy to have a table to sit outside on the very tiny balcony over looking the square. we ordered salads and entrées. Our salad came quickly and my husband entree also came quickly. After 10-15 minutes, we inquired about my entrees and it had been overlooked. Given promises to have my meal prepared asap... It did finally... More

Wonderful atmosphere, nice service, very good pasta and salads. The place is charming and comfortable. Beautiful view to Plaza Dorrego in the heart of San Telmo district. We have very much enjoyed our lunch. I had panzelotti and my husband had ravioli. Both delicious. We intend to go back at dinner time. Their wine list seems good.

This is a really top notch restaurant with a wide selection of pastas and main courses. We found the service to be excellent and the prices were on par with the other restaurants we ate at while in BA.

Yesterday a group of us had a great meal at Amici Miei right by San Telmo's square. It catered beautifully for our varied needs, allergies and palates. It's second floor location allows for a few choice tables for two on the balcony overlooking the square, an air conditioned interior dining area and a patio area for hardened smokers. The service...

This restaurant is in Plaza Dorrego which was in the same square as our hotel Anselmo Buenos Aires. We read the good reviews and tried it for dinner. We actually tried to go eat dinner at 7:30 pm and they didn't open until 8 pm. We brought our own bottle of wine and they charged us 120 pesos for corkage.... More

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.
