Buenos Aires has a large Italian population so it's only fitting they would have great pizza, and this place is a real treat. Retro, been here since 1934. Promp, borderline surly service, which kind of has the feel of a grumpy Brooklyn diner. The pizza itself is the best I've had anywhere the world. So cheesy and gooey. The empandas... More

The place is well know for its pizza and empanadas. Don´t be afraid when you see the waiting line. It moves fast. We decided to take away and the service was pretty quick. Have a pint of Quilmes while you wait absorving this absolutely amazing atmosphere. Excellent price and food.

One word: fugazetta (TripAdvisor has a minimum character count so it is actually more than one word. Just ignore the parenthetical,)

That's definitely the best pizza that I've ever had in my life .. You can taste every single ingredient of the pizza .. From the outstanding mozzarella till the onion .. Fugazzeta is simply out of this world

...and just enjoy the good vibe. This cool cat porteno classic is worth the stop even though the pizza should be better. The beer on tap is cold in good, chilled glasses.

The cheese was awesome lots of it. The meet was ham which didn't add too much to the taste. Maybe prosciutto will be a better option. The setting was ok.

Before making our way to the docklands, we had lunched at El Curatito, the pizza restaurant that we had tried to visit a few days earlier. We had read reviews claiming it was the ‘best pizza in Buenos Aires’ and with more than a third of Argentine’s having Italian heritage we thought it worth trying. It is one of the... More

Two friends of mine recommended El Cuartito and I gave it a try. The place is not fancy by any means but the people there are very friendly. Went there with my girlfriend and we both enjoyed the Fugazzeta pizza which comes with bigass onion slices and a lot of cheese. One of the best pizzas I ever had.
