We stopped here for a late pm snacks before our dinner and share 2 slices of pizzas. They taste great with tones of cheese. The full portion pizzas on the neighbouring tables look very yummy but we had to keep a little bit of space for later on. With a 1L beer and 2 slices, the whole came back to... More

The staff is very friendly, they are quite busy but have time to make you feel wellcomed. The pizza is delicious, it is served in a traditional Argentinean... More
