Went here because of a Argentinian I met, who recommend this highly. And it was worth it. Great place for a date or just to be with friends. Waiter and my friend recommended Cappelleti Caruso which is the house specialty, ordered that along with a Lasagna (because waiter said I have to try it and no questions). Cappelleti Caruso was good but the Lasagna was spectacular, one of the best I have had, like they make it in Bologna, Italy. Enjoyed the meal with a great Malbec (sorry do not remember the name). Service was adequate, reservation is recommended on Friday or Saturday.

I would highly recommend this restaurant in Mendoza.

We went to the original restaurant on Gral.Paz in central Mendoza,and it hadn't changed from when I went there four years ago: an old fashioned Italian restaurant providing excellent food in an old fashioned,formal, quite grand setting. Service was a little slow, but then all the waiters are ancient, and deliver (apart from the speed) splendid,proper old-fashioned service.
We started with 'special salad', a huge bowl of salad enough to feed a family,with lots of different ingredient in a tasty dressing. The waiter went to great length to advice which items were vegetarian or could be adapted into vegetarian dishes: my parted then chose some simple, but nice, ravioli in a tomato sauce. I had squid ink black sorrentini in a delicious creamy shrimp sauce,lovely.We finished off with some very yummy Tiramisu. The selection of wines is extensive,including some very good half bottles.
Overall a very pleasant evening if you want a change from casual eateries, and I'm glad to see the place still has its old fashioned flair!
