If you are looking for a delicious pizza in BA, look no further, El Cuartito is just the right place to go! The restaurant is very low key, the decoration hasn't changed since their opening (except for a couple of TV screens showing football games), a truly 50's atmosphere in the heart of Buenos Aires.

There's the NY and Chcago Pizza rivalry. Now you need to include Buenos Aires' El Cuartito Pizza in the mix. Good pizza and good service. Don't be surprised if there is a line to get s table. I plan to return.

You may be used to having Neapolitan style thin crust pizza in BA and other parts of South America however that's not the case here. The pizza is thick and quite tasty. The restaurant is a favorite with locals so it has some nice charm. Recommend a visit here. As of the date of our visit, they only accepted cash.

Excellent Buenos Aires style pizza. Pizzas are very tasty. Atmosphere is just average, not a fancy place. Service is also average, nothing to highlight. Pricing was really good.

Different to thin crust pizza you are used to in other countries, this famous (in Argentina) thick crust pizza is a must and very good value for money. Try "fugazzeta" , which is pizza dough covered with crispy oven cooked onions and stuffed with mozzarella cheese....You can order large or small (plate size) pizzas but also "porciones" which are individual...

The place is very basic and the waiters are not exceptional but the pizza is one of the best in Buenos Aires. It is closed on Mondays and gets really crowded so try to get there early. I don't think they accept reservations. I have never done one.

This place is not fancy, do not expect any etiquette, however the pizza is the star here. You get thick tasty pizza like nowhere else and prices are very affordable. It is worth the visit.

It is one of my favorite traditional pizza places in Buenos Aires. The (argentine style) Pizza is very good and not a heavy as for example in the Las Cuartetas pizzeria on Corrientes.

This is a famous pizzeria in Buenos Aires. Worth visiting for the place, not so much for the pizza which is average.
