During lunchtime it is very difficult to find a table!! And some people have their pizza standing next... read more

If you go to Las Cuartetas you will think that you enter to 1940. The place is old with all the good things ti means. It survived the modernization. They don't save money putting less chess or anything that the pizza needs. A visit to this City is not complete without having a slide a muzzarella pizza at Las Cuartetatas... More

My Argentinean wife said we HAD to stop at Las Cuartetas, and she was absolutely right. Even hardened no nonsense waiters are a classic, loved it. Best pizza apart from my father in law's home made one.

It's a historical place in the heart of Buenos Aires to eat pizza. The pizza was just amazing and the waiter was very nice.

We stumbled by this place after an evening of wine and merriment at We are Tango, and it was perfect for our early morning munchies. Big tasty pizzas that are freshly made, with friendly staff. Busy with locals even in the early hours.

Pizzas pumped out in this busy place. They are delicious, tasty and freshly made. Although, you purchase a ticket for your order and have to queue to get your pizza, the service is friendly. Look and see what the locals are eating if you can't decide. The locals know what's best. Enjoy!

If you go for a piece of pizza or a "empanada" , please take care when you pay in the cash desk because they could give you less money in return . Many people in the place when shows are to beging.

Only downside is that it is cash only. On the other hand, judging by the way the peso has fallen recently, I wonder if restaurants still take credit cards over there (it's been a while since I visited. I checked 2014 on the date, but only because it was the oldest option). Anyways, it was by far the best tomato... More

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
