Cheeses & Cured Cold Cut Meats Platter
A delectable platter of imported cheeses and cold cuts.
Egg Pappardelle alla Bolognese
Pappardelle pasta with a meat sauce
Food was great but the service was horrible. The waiters are friendly but the time to serve is out of mind. We order a starter that was cheese and cold cuts and it took almost 45 minutes to be served.
I do recommend the owner to have a better flow in the kitchen otherwise customer will lie the food but will not go back since the service doesn't correspond to the service
Great assado de tira, and interesting wine selection. Will surely come back.
Esculent food, service and ambiance. Is the best corner in the area. It also offers excellent choices of wine, and desserts.
The server was outstanding! She did a great job! We like a lot just think is a little bit exepensive
Menu options, food, drinks selections, service & food/wine market were terrific! Lovely outdoor patio with solid playlist playing nice background music. Overall excellent independently run dining option with good prices. Enjoyed a deliciously prepared lunch with a small group and everyone left looking forward to a return visit. Was able to shop at the market after lunch for some homemade empanadas, alfajores & Argentinian beer & wine to go. Party on :)
A wonderful location and experience. Food was top notch. Ambiance very relaxed and enjoyable. Servers were a bit overwhelmed though and detracted a bit from the evening but overall a great place to dine.
They need more service. Food overpriced for the quality.
La reserva era 7.45, llegamos 10 minutos tarde, estaba cerrado el restaurante y desde la caja nos dijeron que estaban cerrados con una seña, no tuvieron ni la delicadeza de acercarse a la puerta para avisarnos.
As always eating at itar Bistro its a pleasure, the food, the service and the place; they are absolutely great. Our meats were cooked by a young kid named Juan, he did an outstanding job, both pasta plates were awesome and the mahi no words to describe it.
Thanks again itar.
Probably OpenTable has to know that we made a reservation. We drove 45 min to go to the restaurant and when we arrived at the time of the reservation, the restaurant was closed!!!!
We were very upset and we will never come back again...... seems that they open the restaurant as they please ..... do not care about the reservations.... luck of consideration to the customers!
DO NOT go to this restaurant!!!!
The restaurant was closed when we arrived! Shame on them
A waist of time for customers!
Best quality pasta I've had in a long time. Congratulations to the chef. Service was great and kind.
Very bad never come back
Our first time there. We enjoyed the unrushed expereince. Food was good, service was good. Service personnel were very polite and professional. Great wine section.
The restaurant was closed!
Great service,food ambiance. It was a great experience.
Can’t wait to get back.
I wish I live in Orlando so i could come here all the time.
Food was amazing- service was slow. I would definitely go back because the food is very good.
Thank you very much for your rating and comment. We will take it into consideration to improve customer service. We hope to see you soon, and don't forget to recommend us with your friends and family. Thank you for being an Itar customer.
My only regret is not having found this restaurant previously! I have been in Central FL for 13 years...this is without a doubt Top 3 in Central FL, and for the price point, an easy #1!! Amazing food, elegant plating, very typical Argentinian atmosphere, and excellent service. As fantastic as the food is, the fruit juices are probably even better, and I didn't even get to try desserts. Can't wait for my next visit...

Thank you very much for your review and your stars. We take the passion for excellence to our gourmet offer and customer service. We hope to return soon. Thank you for being an Itar customer.
Had a very nice time. Good food. But would have enjoyed something on top the big bowl of potatoes served with each entree; gravy, butter, garlic. Something.
Thanks for the observation, we will take it into account so that our servers offer the alternative you are suggesting. We look forward to serving you again at Itar Bistro, your restaurant.
Food was FANTASTIC!!!!
Thank you very much for your review, commits us to continue with our policy of quality and service. Thanks for being an Itar customer.
ALWAYS great food and service @ Itar. Our server, Luciana is AMAZING!!!
Thank you for your review and stars, we hope to return soon.
The interior is more like a deli than a dinner place, and too cold to my taste. Outdoors was tolerable only in that it was 9pm and finally a comfortable temperature. Service began slowly, as the one server started with six tables, but improved greatly as the meal progressed and others left. The food leans heavily toward beef, as is appropriate, but there's also a section of the menu that's quite Italian. Because of this, one supposes, half the wine list was also Italian, but that complimented the Argentinian offerings nicely. Portions are large, and we almost could have made a meal from the empanadas. The "spicy" ones actually do have some heat to them, it's not just a marketing term.
Thank you for taking part of your time to evaluate us. We will take your observations into consideration, we hope to have the pleasure of seeing you again.
The food at Itar is exceptional. We highly recommend the lomito (beef loin) with the Malbec reduction and also the same popular Argentine cut with the gorgonzola sauce. Which is not to say that the pastas are not wonderful as well - we are fans of the gnocchi and of the pappardelle. Extensive wine list of Argentine and Italian wines, great appetizers and desserts. The waitstaff is consistently friendly in English, Spanish and Portuguese. And you can bring your pet to dine on patio.
Your time is honored for the qualification and evaluation of our gourmet offer, wine selection and customer service. Our mission is to make customers feel as if they were at home, we hope to see you again soon. We greatly appreciate your recommendation for your neighbors, family and friends. Thanks for being an Itar customer.
Once again, a great meal. So fresh and flavorful. Our server, Luciane was AMAZING!!! Highly recommend this neighborhood gem!!!
Delicious food. Excellent service. We enjoyed the outdoor seating. Inside was not as appealing.
Gabby our server made great recommendations and she was pleasant
Always a delicious meal. Our server, Gabby was AMAZING!!!
Food was excellent will definitely go again
Excellent service and wonderful assortment of delicious foods on the menu.
We were questioning why it said .Market in the add. Now we know! Noise or should I say music was too much for the dining area.
Food was good and service very good.
We were expecting a restaurant not an open area. Not described clearly on website. It was different but not probably going to return. Prices were reasonable but there are so many great restaurants in the area.
They forgot one of our main course.
Authentic Rioplatense food (Argentina and Uruguay). Beer from both countries.
Very good food in a non-traditional restaurant setting. I loved the bistro/market set up.
Service and servers were 5 star all the way. I ordered the empanadas as a starter they were stale and the meat was extremely salty. I ate them because I love empanadas regardless, those were disappointing. Entree Was the Churrasco steak with mash. Mash was tasteless but the steak was Devine perfectly cooked medium rare. I’m disappointed I love Argentinian food and this really was extremely underwhelming for the price.
Always great food and service. Fresh ingredients make all the difference. Our server Diana is AMAZING!!!
Itar was a great place for a relaxed dinner. The waitress was engaging, fun and knowledgeable about the food and restaurant overall. Start with the octopus appetizer and then any of the steaks....great flavor, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Wine selection was good and fairly priced.
Excelente me encanto
