Stopped by to get some food and it really wasn't very good at all. I went for a prawn dish that was overly salty and overly creamy. Poor all round. Service was also very slow. Wouldn't recommend.

During a three week round trip definitely the best steak we had. Maybe you should expect this quality for the price we paid, but other restaurants took our Dollars definitely for less quality. The starters (bread with ...) were mentioned frequently and positive - we fully agree

Went ot San Diego for girls weekend and we ate here our first night.It is small and cozy and not so loud you can't carry on a conversation. Limited but tasteful wine menu. We started with empenadas and the caprese with goat cheese salad they did not disappoint.Excellent food, my steak was cooked to perfection...the sides could have been better,... More

I was there with a friend a few weeks ago and was very excited because the reviews were positive, but I confess that I left a little disappointed. I'm from Brazil, so I have high expectations for my steak and this place just didn't met my expectations. They were having an event called "Restaurant week" or something alongs the lines... More

Everything Perfect! It was a busy Sunday and T was a treat in Little Italy. Figs and peeled fresh mandarin slices and the salad. Steak perfectly cooked. Perfect fries. Giant prawns. Easily 2 people can split one entree. Service perfect. Ambience perfect. Definitely worth a visit each trip to SD.

We were referred to this restaurant as it was a very good steak place. I had the halibut and it was excellent. Everyone was very pleased with their meals.

We stumbled across this restaurant in Little Italy 4 years ago on holiday. The steak was so good we have reminisced about it a great deal over the years. Tonight we returned with high expectations. It was just as good as we remembered if not better. It was part of the reason we factored San Diego into our holiday this... More

We were looking for a brunch before flying out - and came upon this Argentine place right in the midst of the Italian - turned out to be a real treat - well worth dropping in. Wonderfully done steak, great salads and appetizers, and, good value. A pleasant experience all around
