Excellent Fugazzeta!

This place is a must! You can't miss its amazing fugazzeta with or without ham. El Cuartito is always crowded and the attention is very good. A big fugazzeta is perfect for 4 people!!!

The menu, in English and Spanish, features 25 pizza combinations. What they have in common: overflowing cheese. Try the fugazetta!!!!!! Located in the Recoleta neighborhood, is one of the oldest pizzerias in the city, founded in 1934. Dont think NYC pizza style, but please give it a try!!! You will enjoy it.

Got the Fugazzeta with Ham, grande - 220 pesos. It's more than two of us could eat so I'd recommend the chica size for two people. Lots of cheese, lots of onions, very heavy meal. Friendly service - you seat yourself and they come around and take your order.

Open late night and as such we went here by accident after stumbling in to Buenos Aires close to midnight. The place was still full and had a que, although we only had to wait 10 minutes for a table. The pizzas were tasty and plentiful, not the best I've ever had. The atmosphere of the place, however, was quite... More

You'd think eating a pizza of cream, cheese and onion might be bland with a bad case of heart burn later ... Not so! Don't miss this place and as the local Argentine lady sitting at the table beside us managed to translate "it's the bomb!"

Hands down best pizza in BA. Love going during rush hour when young and old alike all shuffle into the familiar aroma of melted cheese for a refreshing quilmes or Pitcher of wine paired with one of the most satisfying meals they'll (at least me) have all day. The place has been around since 1934 for good reason. They do... More

Great pizza far better than most of the rest of the pizzerias in Buenos Aires, nice medium crust pizzas with a huge list of combinations and the best is that you can order slices therefore you can try them all if you wish. A must is the rice pudding as dessert and do try the Moscato wine with the pizza,... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
