I normally dont write a bad review for a restaurant but this was totally a rip-off. We paid 200 ps for cultery, funny enough the glasees had stains on it everywhere. I oredred Salmon, which clearly was pre-cooked ( they brought us the food 5 minutes after our order). The portions were too small and very expensive. The cheese they... More

Il Gatto is dependable Italian food in Puerto madero. At an affordable price in an area of expensive restaurants, probably that's why they are usually packed for lunch Mon thru Fri. It won't be your best meal in BA but it's fine and it won't break the bank, specially if you go for the prix fixe lunch menu.

This trattoria was well worth the effort to get to for supper. Based on the rich Italian heritage of Buenos Aires this restaurant wasn't a surprise to find in Buenos Aires. The food was exceptional and reasonably priced. We ate the Italian foods but they did have steak on the menu which isn't a surprise considering you are in Argentina.

Food and service were excellent. I would return to this restaurant. For the area was not overpriced. Large selection of Italian fare. The Pizza I had was especially good.

The service was not good, food took over an hour and a half, I get all warmed and dried. The attention was not good, everything take long time to arrive, drinks, food and even the bill.

This restaurant is in the gastronomic district of Puerto Madeiro. The prices are very reasonable. The food good, service efficient. The atmosphere is very nice and upscale. We had a late lunch there and the place was hopping compared to the others on the boardwalk. The spinach gnocchi was very good although I prefer a creme sauce over pomodoro.

The food is horrible. We ordered a pizza which we simply couldn't eat because it was like a shoe sole. The price is fair but you will waist your time and money.
