Well worth it! – I am originally from Argentina so I am familiar with good tasting ice cream. As some have mentioned, due to the Italian influence in Argentina, the gelato they make in the country is delicious. Obviously there are good places as well as bad places but when you find a good one, you can quickly tell by the deep flavor and texture of the ice cream/gelato.
My favorite flavor is sambayon (a deeper yellowish colored ice cream made with cream, egg, sugar, and marsala), and it is extremely hard to find here in the US. I have tasted some which claim to be zabaglione but once you taste a good sambayon (Argentine name for zabaglione) they were very dissapointing and lacking both the texture and especially the deep flavor of the marsala dessert wine (some are also made with port wine).
Doing research online I found this place but since I had dissapointing experiences in the past, I was expecting that they wouldn't have the flavor or if they did, it would be bland. I am elated to say that I have finally found a terrific sambayon which tastes as good as the better ones I have had in Buenos Aires. I even took my parents to taste the ice cream and they also agreed this is terrific and as good as any they had in Argentina.
I know tastes can be very particular (as some people rate this place 1 star) but if you're looking for a delicious, creamy full flavored ice cream, this is the place! Anyone that wants to try sambayon, run over to this place, you won't be dissapointed. *A warning-sambayon is a very particular flavor where I notice people either really like it or they don't like it at all so have a small tasting before ordering it.
