Not more than a kick of a fútbol from the Boca Juniors stadium, and as brightly colored as a Caminito house, Il Mattarello is the gritty barrio’s best known Italian cantina. Inside, travel posters advertising various parts of the motherland line the walls underneath the exposed ductwork and acoustic-tiled ceiling. Dishes are true-to-form classics from Genoa and Emilia Romagna, such as stuffed tortelli, stracinate, and mushroom risotto. Loyal regulars, who pack the joint on the weekends, don’t seem to be turned off by the somewhat higher prices aimed at tourists, who have also discovered the restaurant.
