I would eat again at this place, but I think there are better places to eat. I hesitated in selecting Italian while in Buenos Aires - despite the fact that it has a large Italian population.

We found Amici Miei to be very overpriced in comparison to other Italian restaurants in the city. Overall, I was not very impressed, as the pasta was just okay. Don't go out of your way to visit.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
