Like in Italy, but in Mendoza: La MarchigianaPablo EtcheversGentileza La Marchigiana
There is a place in Mendoza where the art of good eating is the protagonist of all gatherings. A visit is mandatory when it comes to understanding the exquisite palate of Mendoza. The best wines complete the once-in-a-lifetime moments spent at the venue.
Beyond any doubt, this is one of the most prestigious restaurants in Mendoza. It is chosen by the locals day after day, night after night.
It is specialized in Italian-Argentinian food, made with fresh season ingredients which include regional and natural products matched with the best selection of wines from the most praised wineries in Mendoza.
It was in 1948 when nonna/i> Fernanda came from the Italian Regione Marche searching for her future and settled down in the Province of Mendoza to find –out of effort and sacrifice- the promised land Europe had failed to be.
Years passed and the endeavor of the elders gave fruit. Today, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are chasing the same dream: luring customers to La Marchigiana for them to enjoy good cuisine.
And they succeed in preparing excellent dishes, among which all varieties of pasta and sauce –some of them very innovative- stand out. They can delight even the most prestigious chefs of Italian cuisine.
The first Marchigiana is located in the very center of the Province of Mendoza, a few meters away from San Martín Square, the main square in the city. At this spot, a spacious well-illuminated venue has been welcoming customers for years. Dishes such as lasagna ai quattro formaggi, pasta di ceppia with seafood cream, paglia e fieno a la papalina, capelletti Caruso, gnocchi all’uso nostro and agnellotti in cream are some of the most popular.
A private wine cellar is open for various activities such as wine tasting sessions, workshops, courses, theme lectures, private meetings, birthdays parties, business presentations and other events.
As it was to be expected, La Marchigiana Palmares was created close to the wineries and heading for the mountains. Thus, the business continues to grow and customers have the chance to discover a new space with a comfortable deck outdoors, ideal to enjoy with friends and the family.
