Our server forgot to bring my order...and then she never came back to our area so that we could correct the mistake! We finally flagged another waitress after 45 minutes (as we watched our original waitress waltz our the door, clearly at the end of her shift), who eventually brought my order (she gave it to the wrong table first)...

We had lunch there after we visited recoleta cemetery. It was a very very tasty pizza. Amazing friendly staff, great brahma beer, and the atmosphere is great

They only have Brahma so you know you have a headache coming for the next hours and next day. Service is terrible, they don't serve "maníes", not even chips! Do yourself a favor and avoid this place.

Watching the world is a pastime in Buenos Aires and this is a fine place to do it. Beer, wine, Pizza and the best empanadas ever combine to make this place a good find for a late afternoon or evening snack. Popular with locals and tourists a like, tables are hard to come by during the peak hours. We visited... More

Romario doesn't hold back on the cheese. The pizzas are well crafted, they look good. The bread is alright, if a bit oily. The service is slow, even for Buenos Aires, and don't expect to order the salads. The lettuce will be wilted, brown, and poorly served. You will need to pick through the leaves to find what you can... More

Great fusion of character pizza with not-the-usual toppings options. Brie and rucula -for instance- or cream cheese and salmon. We had them delivered, and it was a nice, relaxing night "at home", with surprisingly homemade-good pizza ease! "Romaritas", worth giving a try... like a mini-quiche.

Empanadas are really good quality in this chain, with 5-6 flavours. You can 3-4 for a lunch (about 10 pesos each). Really good and traditional argentine food. Pizza was really good. It's a chain and this one doesn't have the best location, so maybe try the one in recoleta, although this will always be overly busy at meal times. Definitely... More

This was by far the best pizza and empanadas I had. I liked this place more than el cuartito which is the most recommended place for pizza. Definitely worth a try. Great service and for single guys the girls that work here are beautiful. I was telling my boyfriend but he did pay me no attention at first. Then half... More

What a find! Delicious and inexpensive! As close to Naples as it gets so far south of the Equator! Charred, thin crust, roasted peppers and basil - yum.....The one we frequented was a block away from our hotel and they deliver!
