We were brought here on the recommendation of our hotel host, and had no idea it was a vegetarian restaurant. A brave concept in meat-crazed Argentina, we were intrigued, and sat down. Man, were we glad we did. A dark, cozy setting, with an open kitchen, it feels like you are eating in someone's home. The good was fantastic too, some of the most original flavors we've had not only in South America, but anywhere. Would recommend to anyone!

This is a lovely little restaurant which serves beautiful freshly made pasta. The menu is perhaps slightly too limited (I usually prefer a varied smaller menu but here the selection was quite samey) and service is slow but I would highly recommend the food as it is cooked to such a high standard.

In this little restaurant, we spent a great time. Meals are excellent and it's amazing to see the coockers preparing your meal. Be aware you have to be patient to get your meals. We taste lasagna and risotto, excellent

This little restaurant (seats 10-15) is a long block off the main plaza (on the side with the church). It is run by a young couple who do everything. The open kitchen allows you to watch the food preparation from the dining area while listening to music and enjoying some wine. We don't speak Spanish and the couple didn't speak English yet we managed to pantomime and use visual displays to help us choose our entrees. The pasta dishes were made from scratch with fresh ingredients and everything about the meal was excellent.
