For lunch or dinner, business or pleasure, this is a good choice in Buenos Aires with a fair value for money, .

Piegari reminded us of a set from the "Sopranos" except everyone spoke Spanish. If you want an authentic Italian meal in Buenos Aires this is the place. The portions are huge but meant to be shared (ideally 3 or 4 people could share one of the pasta dishes). We split a caesar salad, an order of grilled chiperones and a... More

We were recommended Piegari by our hotel and as it was very close by decided to try it out. The dishes are huge so you share them between two. We ordered the black fettucine in a garlic creamy sauce with shrimps and red roe and it was absolutely mouth wateringly good. We live in Brazil, where Italian food is excellent,... More

We were tired of steak and tried Piegari, a great find. The fried calamari was great, and do not miss the baked eggplant and their homemade pastas. Portions are huge, to be shared for 3 or 4 people. Great quality and value, we really enjoyed it.

We were disappointed in this restaurant. The portions are ridiculously large, and the food wasn't all that great. The risotto was okay, but the oso buco was tough (boiled, not braised -- or certainly not long enough) and uneatable. It did not match up to the price, which was high.

Tired of parilla, we had dinner at Piegari. It was better than wonderful. Our waiter warned us about the large portions so we shared an appetizer of frito mixto and spinach. Yes spinach because we felt we werent getting enough green here in BA. It was to die for and a huge portion that easily could feed 4. The same... More

All plates are to share. There are two, so go to the Pasta Piegari. The food is exquisite, the crowd great, you must eat at least one meal here if you go to Buenos Aires.

A friend told me it was the best Italian restaurant in BA so I decided to go there with my husband for a romantic dinner. When we arrived (8:30) there were many tables available. The restaurant has too much light. There were about 3 huge table beside us with large groups of families and children. It was really noisy. I... More

We (a party of three) shared two types of risotto -- black (squid) seafood risotto and one with saffron rice. Both were plentiful and very well executed. My dining companions also had a meat dish and were happy. Service was great -- friendly but not obtrusive. We had good wine (cannot recall the name). For dessert, I recommend limonata --... More

Piegari has the advantage of location - close to a few popular luxury hotels, and it does have a decent reputation gained over the first years of existence.... having said this, today is it not more than an expensive restaurant that caters to corporate travelers and the unaware tourist. The food is acceptable but for the prices charged, it should... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
