We enjoyed this place a lot. The service was very friendly and the food was good to excellent. We felt that some of the combination were a little bit too bold and the bread basket looked nice but was not as great as we have expected. Nevertheless I think this is clearly one of the best option in Iguazu.

The title says it all (ok its my wife's view and she is very fussy). This is not a traditional sauce and pasta Italian restaurant, if thats what you want you may be disappointed. However if you want modern creative Italian based fare, this is the place for you, i.e. a Bruchetta that I barely recognised but very much enjoyed.... More

we went to this restaurant and the service was superb, decor very nice, we were not staying as guests, so we went for dinner, I thought we were going to a traditional italian restaurant, but honestly they have a concept of nouveau cuisine that at least did not impressed me, maybe for someone that is into that tendency will work,...

We had been told that this was a really good restaurant. What we didn't expect was that every sight, sound, and taste would be a delight to the senses. The soft but sufficient lighting, the music, the way the staff was dressed, the glasses, dishes, and especially the cuttlery were all exquisite without being stuffy. Then there's the food. Creatively... More

I do not even know how to describe the style of the kitchen here. This quiet restaurant serves very original dishes with great service. I had a degustation menu of tastes from the region, including Marinated Surubi (fish) with roasted palmheart and papaya mayonnaise (wow!), pacu filled pineapple ravioli with maté sauce (strange but wonderful combination), crispy surubi in a...

My boyfriend took the suggestion fish menu. He practically licked his fingers. I couldn't decide so I took the canneloni with shrimps in a wasabi sauce. This was definitely the best canneloni that I ever ate. Then I took the Milanese of the chef. It was a piece of tenderloin prepared as the well-known Milanese. The only downside was that... More

We had an excellent tasting menu meal here - good and inventive breads, and then some lovely dishes mixing local fish with fruit infused flavours and pasta. Best two dishes were last. Also good wine list. Unlike many tasting menus there were not too many courses. Service very friendly if not as informative as it needs to be for this... More

We had great expectations going there for dinner based on all the reviews that we had read. Unfortunately, something got lost in the kitchen. The food comes beautifully prepared - picture perfect. The chef obviously spends a lot of time making sure that the presentation is first class. If only he had spent as much time working on texture and... More

We were staying at the Amerian hotel and saw a bord indicating an italian restaurant not far away. As we had walked a lot during the day, we decided to try this address to have a pizza or pastas. The "street" that goes straight to the restaurant isn't nice and neither the area, so we thought we will have "regular"... More

Definitely one of the best diners we have in our 8-week trip through Argentina. We have celebrated my girlfriends birthday over here and the service and special attentions was very delightful. The quality of the courses was very good, so I would definitely recommend this place to have a dinner!
