Lovely room on the second floor on a narrow street in San Telmo across from the market square, we were treated to a warm, brick-walled room with plenty of character, intriguing art on the walls, and friendly service. And then there was the food. Salsa were garden fresh and flavorful, with nice balance of acidity and sweetness. Our risottos (one red wine and pancetta, one black truffle and wild mushroom) were presented perfectly al dente and dripping with parmigiano reggiano and rich flavor. Wine list extremely approachable with great value, and desserts were delicious and beautifully presented. The owner, Sebastian, came over to personally welcome us (and answered the phone when we had called for a late last minute reservation). Great food, great vibe, great value.

We went to Amici Miei on the recommendation of our hotel, which was located on the other side of Plaza Dorrego. This upstairs restaurant is a lovely place! We all ordered pasta, and found the food tasty and plentiful. Service was attentive and pleasant. The final surprise was the appearance of a tenor from the Teatro Colón opera house who performed several operatic numbers for the restaurant patrons. It was very special.

Amici Miei is a middle-of-the-road Italian restaurant food wise, not bad but not top either, I was very surprised by so many excellent reviews.
The restaurant is very nice looking, has a very charming atmosphere and the service is very polite and friendly without being overbearing.
The arugula, pear and blue cheese salad was very good, although it did not come with almonds as advertised but with common peanuts. The penne rigate I ordered was cooked al dente, the all’arrabbiata sauce was somewhat bland with excess garlic and a couple of the shrimps (not all but nonetheless a total turn-off) were not fresh and totally mushy when biting into them. The portion was generous but I would rather have less and delicious than more and common. The dessert I was craving for in anticipation, the Tiramisu, tasted good, was light and not too sweet but was way too creamy for an authentic one.
All in all, rather average food in a very nice setting.

This restaurant is well located on plaza dorrega and the only downside is that it does not open until 8pm. The staff are welcoming and the food good and reasonably priced. Our 10 year old really enjoyed the squid ink risotto!
