This family run pizzeria is mostly a favourite place of local people, they have very good Napoli type pizza and a very quick service at a very favourable price.

My travel buddy and I were up for something quick and easy. We really didn't want to stray too far from the apartment in Recoleta. I had been to El Cuartito on my last trip to BA and it was amazing. The location is kind of off the beaten path, but there is a huge "theater marque" type neon sign... More

Pizza is from Italy. However there are many ways to cook it according with the country. American pizza it is not like in Rome, neither in Buenos Aires. Argentina is the LatinAmerican country with more families from Italy, as my own. El Cuartito cooks the typical Argentine pizza, with a generous mozzarella chesse and delicious taste. They have also an... More

We were walking nearby and fancied something simple yet typical. Well, you have it here. A no-frills place populated by locals devouring huge thick pizzas and fugazzetas, they also do takeaway and serve at the bar. The place is covered with old football and boxing posters making it very picturesque. They don't take credit cards so be sure to take... More

Having lived in Peru for almost two years, I know I have struggled to come by good pizza. This little restaurant may not have the most traditional of pizzas but it is oh so tasty! I came here with my family in November 2012 and brought my friend here during another stay in Buenos Aires in April 2013. The crowded... More

Best place to experience the famous argentinian pizza. Love it or hate it but is't an experience you cannot miss.

Friends had told us we *had* to check out El Cuartito while we were in Buenos Aires. It was an easy walk from our hotel so we obliged. They accepted reservations - not a surprise since we wanted to eat early at 6:30pm (at least 3 hours before most porteños are even contemplating their evening meal!). There are lots of... More

I would come here to try it out for the sake of experience and then try it out again when I'm craving character culture and good pizza... Not the best pizza I've tried but still pretty darn good and there's not many places in the world that's as bustling lively full of character in the ambience that's like this and... More

This is one of the best places to go for pizzas al molde(pan style) in Buenos Aires. The pizzas are great and are also served in slices. It is really traditional and simple, really worth visiting
