Fodor's Expert Review Il Gabbiano

$$$$ Bariloche Italian

Staff at this cozy but elegant candlelit house on the Circuito Chico near Llao Llao boast, "we don't serve lunch because preparing dinner takes all day." It's hard to argue with that after you sample the exquisite Italian menu, which changes weekly. Look for pumpkin ravioli or tortelloni stuffed with wild boar; they also have a way with fresh trout. Friendly, bow-tie-wearing waiters provide an ingredient-by-ingredient explanation of each dish. A beautiful wine cellar is open to guests.
