I am very surprised to find this resturant reviews as well as it does. There are so many excellent restaurants around Buenos Aires, this one just isn't on par. First we found our waitress to be disinterested and verging on rude. Although we admit our Spannish is poor, she made no effort to communicate clearly to us. We managed just... More

You should try this experience in Buenos Aires. Is one of the bests pizzas that you can find. Try it outside in a summer night with beer.

Well, we are talking here of a pizza and empanadas place, it's not exactly a trendy place but we'll, they provide good products an consistent customer experience. I recommend you to ask for a fugazzeta rellena con jamón, Best of the best in pizza's world, and it's better for delivery or pick up. Nevertheless, any pizza you ask for will... More

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

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
