We called in for lunch. The staff were friendly and we were given a menu and ordered drinks. My husbands pizza was ok but my cannelloni was, essentially, undercooked and tepid. It had a congealed sauce on top. I scraped out a bit of corned...More

When we couldn't get into the restaurant of our choice, we decided to "make do" with this one which had been recommended as a good Italian. But delighted to find it did not just do pizzas and pasta - both hubby and I had some...More

I can't believe the number of restaurants in Calafate (and BA for that matter) that offer up the same ordinary and uninspired Italian fare - serviceable but ultimately pretty forgettable. We were pleasantly surprised by the relative quality of our meals at La Lechuza. We...More

I loved their milanesa a la napolitana! This restaurant is affordable and simple. Try their cheap menu, you won't get disappointed.

After reading the other reviews we thought it might be ok, it was a bit less than ok. Thick biscuity pizza base, sloppy ravioli drowning in sloppy sauce, nothing nice available on the wine list (only a Spar wine which is always on discount in...More
