Since I live very close this restaurant, I'm there at all times of the day to buy me empañadas. They are very brittle and juicy - while they are cheap (14 peso). So I be full of only 2! These I think are definitely okay, the best empañadas in precinct. I also tried the pizza there, and it was not... More

I go there every time I travel to BA and the quality of food is consistently great. The milanesas are excellent as well as pizzas and empanadas. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's open late in the evening and the location is quite convenient. It's not a fancy restaurant, it's a chain of pizzerias/cafes and this one in... More

The kind of pizzeria you go to eat and that's it - no fancy environment, no exquisite nothing. Pizza is good for our taste. It has a lot of cheese and my wife could barely taste the pepperoni pizza she ordered, but still a good pizza. Service was very good, the waiter was friendly and helpful. Price was as pizza:...

The best pizza I've tried in my life. Make sure you try the empanadas as well. Couldn't stop eating! Delicious!

Consistently good. I order takeaway at least once a week. Earlier I would do so three or four times a week, but in the interests of not expanding my waist line any further, I have been restricting myself! The pizza portions are delicious. The fugazza is great to take away and then at home you can add your own toppings... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch and a cold cervesa. We really enjoyed the food and the staff although English wasn't spoken were very helpful in placing an order. They exchange USD for 10 pesos/1 USD! The banks don't even touch that and charge you service fees.

It seems that Monday is not a great night to find a good restaurant in the San Telmo district. We tried a few that were closed and then went to La Continental, as it was open and I remembered seeing reviews that it was OK, but not great. Service was quick and we ordered (for two of us) just one... More

The mozzarella is amazing - simplest and best pizza in Buenos Aires. The place is a quilombo mind. But that's what Pizzerias in Buenos Aires are all about. A million people eating pizza and shouting over each other at 1am on a Tuesday night - brilliant!

The chicken empanadas are definitely the best I've tried. Pizzas are alright but nothing to be specially surprised by. Staff is always in a hurry yet really nice and keen to suggest plates.
