We only went here because there was one very close to us, one of us was not well enough to have a proper night out, and because it seemed popular with the masses. It was a mistake. The pizzas are overpriced for what they are (which is tasteless & bland)... we ordered a pizza with arugula on top, and it came with exactly 11 leaves (yes, I was so astonished at the scant scattering that I counted), of which 4 were yellow or yellowing. Never mind the money, I'm sorry I wasted valuable irretrievable vacation time here.

For me, it`s the best empanada in the city. And it`s cheap. And most certainly the coldest beer you can have. Just wonderful.

The pizza is mass produced does not make it bad, it just take out the soul and fill it with grease, service is nothing special, not good nor bad.
The price they are asking is really high compared to a good pizza restaurant.
There is nearly nothing inside the empanadas, if you want proper ones go to a restaurant where they make Fresh Empanadas.
Skip this place an go to Siamo nel Forno which is the best Pizza place i have found in BA
Enjoy

Romario is the classic example of a commercial large scale operation that focuses on the bottom line and cuts corners with basic ingredients. The result is a sloppy industrial product that reminds me of a discount supermarket frozen pizza. Yes, the packaging is nice and the restaurants try hard to be hip and trendy, but in the end they appeal to a very very young crowd that is on a shoestring budget (and lacks a discerning palate for quality ingredients). Foodies and pizza lovers, give this place a miss.
