Fodor's Review

Located on the fringe of Little Italy’s bustling restaurant scene, this intimate Argentine steak house is named for a Buenos Aires waterfront neighborhood home to generations Italian immigrants. The dimly lighted spot may not be as trendy as other dining spots here, but is still a romantic and comfortable destination for visitors and neighborhood regulars. Patio seating is perfect for happy-hour munching on popular empanadas or tender marinated octopus in olive oil and garlic. The many Argentinean-style steaks, including the signature skirt steak, get a flavor boost from the tangy chimichurri sauce. An extensive wine list includes some delicious malbecs from Mendoza.

The best beef in San Diego

After many times eating here, I can completely recommend this place. I try go to Puerto La Boca every time I'm in town. I'm not real big on eating red meat but here is a good reason for exception. Try the Entrana (too much food for even for two people). Although several of the Empanada appetizers (beef & spinach) are equally up to the task. The Buenos Aires salad is to die for consisting of watercress, beets and bacon. The atmosphere is of an elegant

bistro with white table cloths but nothing special. The place is small enough that your waiter is never far and nearly all the them hail from Argentina. All and all a rewarding dining experience if you like meat.
