Tends to be pricey! We usually go here for an Anniversary, or another special day. The food is great, the service is exceptional. They don't have my favorite, escargot, anymore, but I still manage to get something that is good!

As usual. Alito is one of the best restaurant in the City. The combination of foods, the ambient and the service is absolutely great.

This is a blue ribbon restaurant and should be recommended to any tourist visiting Mar del Plata. We celebrate our important days there, in family. It is a place where not only food can be enjoyed but also a nice chat.

Large selection of tasty seafood plates like paella de mariscos. Nice selection of wines. Very big portions, large enough to share. Good place.

Great and unforgettably delicious experience. The place has been there for almost 40 years. The owner was there meeting guests and talking to the regulars. Ambience very cozy and casual. They have terrace, but we preferred to sit inside. As an aperitif they offer you a free cocktail of Fernet and coke. Nice touch. We ordered the Octopus, cooked a... More

The seafood here is exceptional!!!! Portions are huge, so you should share one portion. Service is superb and professional. Two of us shared a Paella.....amazing! Desserts (if you have room) are wonderful, if a bit rich. Not expensive, and they take cards, useful for a foreigner, as changing money in a bank in MDP can take almost half a day!!!!... More

Across the street from our hotel, it could not have been more convenient, and yet the first three nights we resisted what we figured was tourist hype.
