I feel I do not have the vocabulary to do justice to just how delicious this meal was. Best Italian food I have eaten. Ever. I ordered the trout, and my husband ordered the rigatoni with lamb ragu. The waiter was kind, and very helpful with translating menu items for us. Delicious and inexpensive wine list as well. Two additional... More

We were psyched about going, based on the reviews. But maybe because it was a Sunday night it wasn't the best opportunity to see if it lived up to the hype. The celebrated pulpo - the dish that convinced us to go there - wasn't available. Nobody's fault, but a bit of a letdown. We had pasta (ok, not special),... More

This restaurant is a bit of a drive down the Llao Llao peninsula but worth it. It is a charming little Italian restaurant with handmade pasta. We both had excellent pasta dishes, I had the spinach ravioli which was a welcome break from beef! Desert was a passion fruit panna cotta that was to die for. The only quirk was... More

Lovely evening here last night. Everything was perfect particularly the attentive service and friendliness of the staff. If we ever get the opportunity to return we will do so eagerly. Loved the wine cellar tour also!

This charming restaurant is just a few minute car ride from Llao Lao Hotel. The restaurant offers free transportation and takes $US. The atmosphere was charming, the servers were very pleasant, the menu was interesting and the prices were reasonable. We had the grilled octopus and Greek salad and both were delicious. The food here is much better than the... More

We stayed at the Llao Llao hotel, a wonderfully situated place to stay with a disappointing restaurant, so we looked for somewhere better close by. Il Gabbiano was well reviewed on TA and also recommended by the concierge. The proprietor picked us up from the hotel and dropped us back when we were ready to leave so no hassle. The... More

We went here with a travel study group while staying at the Llao Llao resort. The evening was great, the food very good , and the ambiance warm and welcoming. It is difficult for me to rate the food since the courses ranged from good to spectacular. All in all, I would recommend this charming, welcoming Italian restaurant outside Bariloche.

We enjoyed dining here very much - it's a really lovely restaurant. The server was excellent, taking time to explain all of the dishes to us in English and offering suggestions. 3 of us had a wonderful caprese salad with buratta cheese while my younger son ordered the grilled octopus which I assumed would be in many small pieces, but...

Maybe because this was not our first choice for the night and because the restaurant we wanted to go was booked and (Butterfly) they recommended Il Gaggiano. It just was not their night. The special meat ravioli was dry it. The tiramisu had so much chocolate powder that it caused coughing fits at the table. The poll of the nine... More
