It's almost unfair for me as a Norte Americano to give La Mezzetta an unfavorable review. This place, along with a few other of the classic old (pre-1950's) pizzerias in town are hallowed ground, with legions of loyal followers. It's a very distinctive style of...More

If you want to try the traditional and famous Argentinian pizza, you have to stop by this place. You won't regret it! Argentina has won the Pizza World Championship a couple of times, when you try this you will get why!

Best pizza in BA--soo much cheese and so filling, 2 porciones and I'm stuffed. Old-school place with standing room only--best to grab a pizza to go and enjoy at home if you're close enough. The empanadas are awesome, too, but really--I'm coming for the pizza.

I only go 2 or 3 times a year. But it never disappoints! The best fugazzeta pizza of my life. Cheese, grease, beautiful pizza. While you wait for your order it's mandatory to have one meat empanada. But not more than one or you won't...More

Since that pizza is cooked bakwards anything else doesnt make competition, The empanadas are heavy , like 7 onz each, its alaway crowded but fast and probably best muzarella in town , A tip: Ricota Cake!
