Il Matterello

Located in the dynamic neighbourhood of La Boca, Il Matterello perfectly blends the Latin vibes of the city with its pronounced Italian identity. The menu offered by this Modena native family provides an authentic Italian culinary experience: Italian appetisers, fish and meat based dishes, an heterogeneous offer of homemade pasta and to put the icing on the cake, the restaurant's very own tiramisu.


The first thing that pops into people's minds when thinking of a typical Argentinian dish is certainly steak. The whole country is famous for its juicy and flavorful steaks from grass-fed Pampas cattle. "Parrilla", meaning both steakhouses and the grill itself is key to the country's cuisine and culture, but be sure to explore other culinary trends during your visit. The popular "bodegones", or neighbourhood eateries, serve meat, pasta, fish, pizza, and many other kinds of food. A large number of new restaurants are opening regularly, bringing a larger variety of international specialities (i.e Asian, French, Italian and South American) to the dining scene in Buenos Aires. However, let's not forget about the most important and symbolic national street food, the "choripán", the ubiquitous grilled chorizo sandwich.
