Enjoyed a pleasant lunch. My salad with grilled salmon was ok, but nothing special. Hard to order because of limited English by the waitstaff. Welcoming complimentary drink, but a charge for the bread.

We were advised to come here by our hotel the Park Hyatt. The position on the waterfront is lovely. Sadly being Monday the fish available were limited and our waiter inferred that we should have been aware of this! The pasta was good but we felt somewhat forced into some of the courses without sufficient explanation. There appeared to be... More

To start, the restaurant automatically charges you ~$63 pesos per person (aka cubiertos) as a seat charge and includes some bread (fine print below the postre menu). Food was just average and the waiter ended up charging us for 2 of the premium glasses of wine although we ordered the house ($129 vs $90 pesos). We are two fluent Spanish... More

This was the best dinner we had in Buenos Aires. We went to 5-star grilles, local restaurants recommended by friends and internationally acclaimed restaurants but this was by far the best. Busy, slightly chaotic, waiters very quick and knowledgeable, as Italian restaurants should be. Excellent Italian food, ambiance and service in a good neighbourhood. Do go!

In our 10 day stay we ate twice at Sottovoce. Pastas were excellent. Would highly recommend. Ground floor level is best location. Our hotel recommended, Alvear palace and they were right on. The manger, I think his name is John was excellent.

We had a delicious meal with excellent service. The baked pasta was fantastic. The wine selection was a little limited but they had some good choices.

Hearty Italian food, popular with the over 50 local crowd. Friendly, offering complementary sparkling or Aperal to start, and limoncello to cap the night.

I'm Italian and rarely I eat italian food outside Italy, but sometimes I need my dose of carbohydrates. This was a pricey food with poor quality. All the kind of pasta had the same tomato sauce with the same plain taste. At least the pasta was cook "al dente".

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
