WOW!!! We had heard about the legendary Buenos Aires pizza, and this really does deliver! Don't bother going anywhere else to try the real Argentianin pizza, just go HERE! This restaurant has been around forever - a bit of an 'institution' in Recoleta, and full of both locals and tourists. We arrived early (7.30), but within an hour, it was... More

The best place to go if you like pizza. The pizzas are very good and the staff is extremely friendly and effective. The atmosphere is genuine Argentinian of full vibrant local people.

If you are looking for an authentic place to eat pizza in BA, this is it! Typical bodegón with unique personality, loud, filled with pictures of all the famous Argentinians, you will find locals and tourists eating a great inexpesive pizza and of course, a fugazetta with a cold beer. A must!

El Cuartito is one of those MUST places to visit, it's been there for more than a century and they still carry one of the best options for pizza in the city. This is no fancy nor luxurious place, it's a "bodegon", expect a less than acceptable service from the waiters, it's loud and it does not invite you to... More

We ordered on large pizza, but half espanola (so so) and half (can't remember) that was delicious. The crunchy crust was awesome. it is super cheap too! The servers aren't very friendly. By the time we left there was a line out the door so get there early.

Excellent, inexpensive and very local pizzeria. This place is well known and has a unique personality with its walls fully covered with sports posters and memorabilia. We had the "El Cuartito" pizza, size "grande", which is very ambitious for 2 people to finish but we did. It was that good! In retrospect, a "chica" size would have been enough for... More

Identified by giant vertical hanging sign outside - and it was busy, busy. Excellent service, quick and efficient. Lots of locals ordering pizza or just standing up and eating it whilst they read the paper, on a lunch break etc. Plenty of choice, loved the fuzagetta, cold beer, very drinkable red wine by the glass, thoroughly recommend for a bit...

Simple, local, perfect…The place is perfect for a quick lunch or dinner. Ask for a cold beer and dive head first in the empanadas world.

We walked to this local restaurant for pizza and were very happy with dinner. The thin crust Margaritta sausage was just right. Another tasty combo was the goat cheese mozzarella. All ingrediants were fresh and service was prompt and helpful.
