Top choice italian in Mar del Plata

You have two dining choices here. Up front is the craft cocktail bar where they rotate four platos del día, at fixed and affordable prices. However, you'll need to step a bit further off the street and into the stone dining room if it's the sensational housemade pasta that you crave, and it should be.

It offers three raviolis daily, and a range of succulent sauces. The pizzas are wood-fired and have thin crusts. You'll see the chef spinning his dough in front of the oven. The wine list is extensive and even the soundtrack is perfect. There's a reason it's renowned across Argentina. After dinner, wander around the neighborhood; it's filled with bars and pubs.
