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

Las Cuartetas is a classic BA pizza place. The atmosphere is pretty bare-bones but the pizza is AMAZING! I have eaten at several different pizzerias in BA and Las Cuartetas is hands down the best there is. The dining room is large so it is not hard to find a seat, the service is quick, and there are tons of... More

It seems this restaurant has been at this location for ever. The place has changed over the years, adding air conditioning for the comfort of the patrons. It is a typical pizza place in Buenos Aires, but with a great reputation due to the quality of its pizza. It is well located right in the middle of downtown, a stone... More

This pizza was very, very good. The place is pretty large, but it became very crowded (and noisy) during lunch. Great "real" deep-dish pizza like in the states, and the price is reasonable. Very good cheese, very good sauce, very good dough. Yep... very good.

Had this after a day visiting the centre. Wouldn't think it would be much as it is a pizza place in the heart of tourist/theatre district but it was fantastic. Great value deep dish Neapolitan pizzas. Was so tasty that I kept craving pizza afterwards but nothing came close to this place. Must have.

This place is historic, a lot of stories can be heard about Las Cuartetas if you ask locals. Famous people used to eat there. And its a pizza hotspot for locals that goes to shows in Corrientes avenue and want some delicious pizza before or after The show. The pizza... Just amazing. Enjoy!

Really nice Argentinian pizza which means lots and lots of cheese. Upon the top in Bs As "pizzerias de barrio" (traditional not fancy). Go for it! Mozzarella is a winner.

Las Cuartetas is not only a traditional pizza restaurant in Buenos Aires, but one of the best. The pizzas are big, with lots of mozzarella. The prices are good and the ambient is very nice. If you go to Buenos Aires, this is a really good place to go, you will never regret.

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 and 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.
