We went in El Cuartito to try their famous pizza. Wife took Palm chica, and I had Napolitana ham. Palm was good, but Napolitana ham was great! Lots of cheese, ham and slices of tomato on top were so tasty!

If you're out for a bustling place with walls covered with soccer players' photos and you don't know the difference between mozzarella and plain cheese, then this is the place for you. If good pizza is what you're looking for, go a few blocks down...More

This is more an institution than a restaurant. Cavernous in size. Loud in a nice way. You will meet the most unexpected people. I met an argentine football legend, batistuta. The pizza is outstanding. Drink beer rather than the wine. The service is swift and...More
