Service wasn't bad overall, that is probably the best compliment I can give to 'La Continental'. We did wait a little more time than we were normally waiting in other 'pizzerías'. Pizza was OK, we can say it was average, empanadas of cheese and onion were very good. Price was very above average for a pizzería. Very crowded saloon that... More

We went here during our visit to BA, it was next door to our hostel, so we are here almost every night for 5 nights in a row. The decor is a little dated and tacky but who cares when the food is good! The pizza is great. Like really great. Try the simple Jamon y Morrones. You won't be... More

I know this is being billed as traditional BA pizza, but I've eaten pizza around the world & have eaten a lot better, sometimes for less. I love cheese, but even for me the pizza had way too much cheese. It seems to be one of those places that you can go to when everything else is closed. All in... More

This is a multi outlet restaurant located in Buenos Aires. We visited the location in Recoleta for dinner. It is located directly across from one side of the Recoleta Cemetery so it is very easy to find. The menu is mostly Italian in origin but the restaurant specializes in pizza and does an excellent job. The price is fair and... More

La Continental is one of the classic pizza shops in BA, with many stores all over the city is a good option for pizzas or empanadas.

Great location. Delicious/amazing / excellent empanadas. Personally I liked the carne and caprese ones the best. Not much else to say, but worth going if you're hungry and in the area!

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.
