In middle of old town Buenos Aires comes this 1934 Pizza place with simple but unique flavors. Try onion with cheese, this is the most requested and the one shown in the picture, it has probably triple or more the amount of cheese of regular US Pizza with grilled onion. You can order half/half pizza, flavors are good. Warning: They... More

Great for a taste of local pizza. Thick and cheesy, non classy at all but great experience. A must with friends

As mentioned by others, If you are looking for a delicious pizza in BA, look no further, El Cuartito is just the right place to go! It is full of photos of all the sports teams and famous personalities that have visited this must visit place.

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.
