Nice and prompt, ok price with the empanadas not really anything special at all and had to go on the search again for something a little tastier. They did have an almond and celery which was at least a stride away from the usual suspects, but nothing wow. No charge for delivery.

After 4 hrs of waiting for our luggage to be unloaded then almost a hours drive to the unit...checkin etc...we were starved and happened upon this pizza place while checking out the recoleta neighbourhood. We were very lucky as it was fun ordering in Spanish and hoping what we got was going to be good. Yes it was to the... More

Since we speak English we weren't quiet sure what we ordered, but it was great pizza. The empanadas also were delicious. Small and warm seating inside. Their website is poor.

I asked for a normal pizza - crust baked in stone oven, tomato extract and buffala mozzarella It came loaded with green.olives, which I specifically said I did not want,. a thin tomato juice out of a can, no taste, and a mozzarella from a cow, not a buffala. Service slow and uninterested, they said THEY knew how to make... More

For a quick bite while on the go I really liked Los Maestros. Yes, it is pretty much a temple to all things gluten-filled but there is an Argentinian staple that I discovered called Fainá which is essentially a garbanzo-based flatbread very similar to Farinata or socca. This restaurant offered a plain version and Fainazza (Fainá with scallions) – I... More

In one of the nicest areas of Buenos Aires, Los Maestros offers great pizza in a friendly though small café. The pizza is one of the best in Buenos Aires and the price is very good indeed. The area around is chick with nice boutiques.

I recently ate in Los Maestros when staying in BA. My husband and I were just wandering the streets and came across it located directly across from a park. The weather was nice so we decided to sit outside, it was great. The waitress was great, she checked on us multiple times during our meal, which is almost unheard of... More

We stayed just around the corner from Los Maestros so tried their pizza our last afternoon in BA. The pizza was pretty good - nothing super special, but tasty. Service was good and the beer was cold. Overall, a nice place for lunch, but nothing outstanding. We recommend if you're in the area, but wouldn't suggest you go out of... More

When staying at the Poetry Building in Recoletta we found this corner restaurant. Comfortable family place that felt like a pizza place at home. Food was very good. Try the Fugazza. This is a specialty with a crust, carmelized onions and then topped with cheese. Very good. The homemade Flan was lovely as well. At night the manager gave a... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
