Authentic Neapolitan pizza!

If you like American-style pizza with lots of toppings, this place is not for you. But if you're looking for pizza that looks and tastes like you're in Naples, this is it! Crust is thin in the center, puffy and crispy at the edges. Homemade sauce and quality cheeses. Come right at 8pm if you want a... read more

Crust is thin in the center, puffy and crispy at the edges. Homemade sauce and quality cheeses. Come right at 8pm if you want a table without reservations.

I had given up on pizza in Buenos Aires with their love of bad and huge amounts of cheese on a thick crust until some friends told me about Siamo nel Forno. Proper Italian pizza that is not thick, has nice mozzarella, nice sauce and quality toppings. I'll be back *we got a take out :)

Great place for pizza if you appreciate the flavor and texture of true Neapolitan pizza, that means a thin crust baled in a specially built Italian brick oven, with genuine freshly crushed tomatoes and delicious mozzarella. There are many options but I always start by having the Pizza Margherita, which is the simplest but gives a true measure of the... More

Book a table on the terrace (be quick, there are only 3 tables). Ask Nestor, the owner, to recommend you a bottle of wine. Have a burrata as a start then share two pizzas for 3 or 4 people. Then have a drink at Rey de las Copas, Isabel or Olsen.

We tried a number of pizza places in BA but Siamo nel Forno had by far the best crust and flavor. Maybe we prefer the Neopolitan-style pizza more than the thicker crusts of BA-style pizza. Maybe we enjoyed the fact that we didn't have to wait to get a table. Maybe it was the high quality ingredients the joint uses... More

Arrived in BA after 36 hours of travel. Hotel warned us that the restaurant didn't open till 8pm. We were first in the door at 8:05....by 10:30 we felt like one of the family.....couples with toddlers and babies....couples out for the night. The pizza is memorable....very thin crust, excellent cheese. We started with a dish whose name I can't remember......a... More

Easily the nicest pizza in BA which isn't saying much, but also one of the nicest I've eaten in a long time. They actually use tomato sauce here which is a first in Argentina. Great Napolitana style in a sizzling hot wood-fired oven. Nice selection of IPA beer also. Very reasonably priced.

Arrived at the door with the family with no reservation and was received with a smile and given a table quickly. Later realized we were lucky to have arrived early (around 8 pm) as into the night it got quite crowded. The menu is not massive but has enough choices to satisfy those craving for a real pizza. We had... More

One of the better pizza places in Buenos Aires. The naples flavored pizza at this restaurant is great and very close to a traditional flavor that you will find in Italy. Very well done.

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
