I waited 8 years and finally got to eat some fugazza con queso and the muzzarela pizza at Pirilo again. I absolutely love the fugazza con queso ($1.25 US per porción) and $1.00 per slice for the muzza (mozzarella). If I am not eating at...More

Very hard to understand how anyone could rate this as "best pizza". Most of our order went into the garbage bin. Thick stodgy base, greasy, one with onion, herbs, little else, another thick and cheese (slightly edible) and one much thinner but cannot work out...More

The pizza is nice and greasy: a must-try, especially if you're hungover. Unfortunately, their opening hours are random, even at-will, I would say. You can never count them on being open: you just have to swing by and hope for the best. But always have...More

I came here under recommendation. The place is small and you can only eat standing, the pizza slice is cut out from an enourmous pizza in a non conventional way by a really old lady and served in a servillete, nothing fancy, but then you...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
