    If you really want to have fun get some empanadas, they are all good. Then try the mayonesa de ave salad before some lomito beef sandwiches or milanesa. If the special sounds good then go for it.

    Milanesa Napolitana is almost like the real thing I got back home. They should pair it with papas fritas (French fries) to make it more authentic.

    Faves: spicy beef empanada, chimichurri, & quatro leches. Not so great: gnocchi & shrimp appetizer. They were out of A LOT of stuff, including mint for a mojito (so I couldn't get one). It's not Miami

    The Petronius Super Tuscan and the Calma Rioja are both fantastic reds. Tons of character in the Petronius and a nice bit of spice to the Calma.
