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.

The restaurant is one of many "La Continentals" in Buenos Aires. If you are looking for a quick opportunity for lunch or dinner, it is ok. The pizzas are ok and will fill you up, but it is a little strange, that they almost "drown" from cheese. But if you like A LOT of cheese, you will like "La Continental",... More
