Great pizza1

For the best pizza's and empanades, you have to go to La Continental! It is a typical Argentine pizza place where you can eat your pizza also directly at the bar

The place was packed with locals so we thought that we would give it a try. The Vegeterian Pizza that we ordered was very disappointing the base was far to thick and heavily filled with cheese and with no tomato. Considering Argentina has an Italian heritage there was no evidence of it here.

We stumbled across this restaurant a little dazed and tired after a long flight, with more energy we would not have gone. The food was mediocre, I had a pasta dish which was trying to be too many flavours. It is reasonably cheap but not enough to ever make me go back. I liked the pictures on the wall and... More

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:...

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

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
