We went numerous times to this lovely restaurant that was just a short walk from where we were staying in Laprida, Recoleta. The menu is focused around classic Italian dishes but with some Argentine and international dishes. We tried various dishes and all were very tasty, well prepared and presented. The chicken escalope with putanesca sauce was outstanding as was the bife de chorizo, a classic Argentine sirloin cut. The ambience of the restaurant is very much along the lines of a European brasserie that makes for a relaxed feel. Service was always very attentive and professional....Walter made us feel very welcome from the first visit. Very much a locals place. The house Malbec was excellent and overall price very reasonable. We were certainly charged more for less in other places we ate at. Very enjoyable

This cute little restaurant is tucked away in the Palermo neighborhood, but boy are we glad we stumbled upon it! The fresh, homemade pasta was very good, and all the dishes were interesting. (Not the plain spaghetti + tomato sauce you saw at a lot of other places). The one downside for tourists is their menu was only in Spanish, and the server we had did not speak English. This was fine for us, but know that before you go, if you have limited Spanish it could be difficult.

The service was good, the food almost regular and the price high. The atmosphere of an old "café" with little light did not help. The "fritata de hongos" ( fried mushrroms) that I asked was something like a mushroom's omelette, but not good.

This was the second time we had visited primi piatti. The first was 2007. At that time it was good. The second was in 2009. Then the food was inedible. This time we thought that we would give it a second chance. I ordered a simple pasta with pancetta. This was a frozen mess heated in microwave, and was also inedible. AND it was relatively expensive. Avoid this place at all costs!
