On our first day in Buenos Aires we went on a food tour after which the guide provided us a document detailing all the best places to eat in the city and Siamo nel Forno was one of them. They made quite a bold statement saying it was the best pizza in Buenos Aires and I must say it rivalled... More

Good, solid pizza. Cant really go wrong here, but does not deserve 5 stars. Good tomato sauce, nice flour/dough, and good ingredients. Its pretty good and that is about it. It is a pleasant restaurant and service is above average, not exceptional. We also ordered a Burrata and it was not worth it. It was not accompanied by any breads... More

Great restaurant to have a traditional Neapolitan pizza! The simple and beautiful taste from the south of Italy! Recommended for a dinner with friends.

I'm all for Neapolitan pizza, although I prefer traditional Argentine pizza. This one, I didn't like. Too expensive, and not worth it. Nothing special.

We went to Siamo nel Forno based off a recommendation from our Parrilla Tour guide and it was very good. It seems a bit off the beaten path, and we didn't notice too many visible tourists dinning with us. As with most of our dining experiences in BA the service was awesome. It was packed by 8:30pm and we were... More

Service was friendly and expedient, and the pizzas were good ... but by no means very good or excellent, based on taste and presentation: relatively large rim, and a (too) thin layer of toppings, with an underlying somewhat doughy 'crust'. If I go next time, I would consider ordering non-Pizza items, like prosciutto/mozzarella appetizers and similar. The restaurant develops a... More

There are two fantastic pizzerias in Palermo, Siamo, and Cosi mi Piace. I've been to Siamo twice and if you're planning on going definitely make a reservation! I did the first time and it seemed unnecessary, but on a Friday evening, it's definitely a good idea. Despite the long wait, the owners were extremely gracious, offering those waiting for a... More

My husband and I came here after seeing the reviews and we are so glad we did. We arrived just after it opened on a Sunday and it quickly got busy so you may need book on a weekend. Our waiter was great, our Spanish isn't that good but he helped us with the menu (most of it has english... More

We had tried so much steak in Buenos Aires that we wanted a change of pace and found Siamo nel Forno near our hotel in Palermo. Great flavor and cooked correctly.

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
