Having heard this was one of the best pizza places in Buenos Aires, we came for dinner. As soon as you walk in, you're hit with so much wall decor your eyes have to adjust. It's like a football (soccer) museum, but also other miscellaneous...sports memorabilia too. The owners were soccer stars and every patch, shirt, pennant, and news clipping are fastened to the walls. You have to spend a good part of your visit just looking at history all around you! Very cool. For dinner, we ordered two pizzas, but also the "faina" which is a garbanzo bean bread you're supposed to put OVER the pizza when eating it. Interesting tradition, so we did it. The pizza itself may be good by Argentine standards, but coming from New England the pizza in America tastes better (to me at least), though this is probably better ingredients and healthier all told. Still, a great restaurant and nice experience. By the way, not sure why it's called "La Guitarria" considering it's basically a soccer memorabilia museum!More

What used to be one of the best pizzerias in Buenos Aires, is now a rundown version. The football parafernalia is still in place and it is a justified reason to have a snack there. Do not ask for promotions or slices, only freshly made...6 slice or 8 slice pizzas are worth a try.More

The restaurants is one of those places that still survives thanks to the fame it had in the past. Having plenty of experience in pizza, I can say the pizza is not bad, but the service is not good. The place was full and I...had the impression the waiter was the only one working...cause he came back and forth but never managed to keep the food coming to my table. The place inside is nice, with tons of pictures of celebrities so it helps the retro experience. Bathrooms: could have been cleaner.More

This is a great family pizza restaurant located in Núñez, Buenos Aires city. It was founded by two famous 1950’ soccer players ((Pontoni & Boye) and is full of of Argentine soccer memorabilia. Pizza is absolutely wonderful! We try to have dinner at La Gitarrita...every time we visit BA. Service can get slow specially on weekends. Draft beer is awesome!More

After many years we returned today for a “good pizza”. Instead we had a surprise... The pizza was very bad. We don’t think to go back again.

The pizza is awesome! The service is great too, not fancy but efficient, but some times it's hard to get a table because all the people waiting.

Good pizza place. Seemed to be a popular local hangout - pretty busy on a Monday night. Decent pizza somewhere in between Argentinian and Italian style which was a welcome change from the normal mountain of cheese and grease. The football memorabilia all over the...walls is excellent and really adds to the atmosphere. Decent.More

We stopped by for a good pizza. I suggest the fugazzeta rellena. Lot's of cheese and onions!!!. The ambience is great, filled with old soccer shirts and newspaper cuts all around. Service is good and pizza came hot and quickly. Also to note that they...serve big bottles of soft drinks, which is great when going with a big party. I suggest going early for dinner, before 8:30 PM, - which might late for US but early for Buenos Aires - because it usually gets crowded afterwards. In the warm nights you can sit outside. So, if around Nunez neighborhood, stop for a good pizza.More
