Cantina Pierino in Buenos Aires offers sorrentinos with a variety of fillings and a long list of sauces to choose from. The house sauce, the Pierino, is creamy and pungent with gorgonzola and slice arugula. We particularly like the ham-and-cheese ravioli, especially when paired with either the Pierino sauce or the scarparo, a light tomato sauce enriched with cream.
