“One of the Best Pizzas I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2010

I had read on TripAdvisor that Los Inmortales was the place to go for authentic Argentinian pizza. When I asked the front desk at our hotel, they told us they preferred El Cuartito.

It did not disappoint. We ordered a "Fugazetta con Jamon" for 3 people and were barely able to get through half of it. It was one of the most delicious pizzas I've ever tried, and a lot had to do with the breading/crust, which I'd never had before. The layering of REAL cheese (not the shredded plastic cheese from the States), the ham, the onions...it was all delicious!

They also deliver, which is good for travelers, who don't necessarily want to make the trip to the restaurant.

“If you ask me- toooo much cheese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2010

For my taste- in Argentina they put just too much cheese on pizza. There is so much cheese that you don`t even see or taste anything else.
But, El Cuartito is a very interesting place and you should go there and try ARG pizza. The place was full during our visit and the atmosphere is just great.

“Don't miss the desserts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2010

A friend recommended this "hole in the wall" pizza place in Bs. As. We ate there on our first day and had to go back before we left. Delicious pizza, very good empanadas, and desserts to die for. The flan and the bread pudding were outstanding.
Service is efficient and polite but too busy to be friendly.

“Excellent food, service and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2010

A great restaurant. The name might mean little room but it is actually a large pizza diner with tables a plenty and a constant queue for takeaways. Thankfully the person who recommended it to us told us to get there early and we were glad we did as by 9pm it was packed.

The service was friendly and helpful and the pizza were lovely. One small pizza was big enough for both of us although we didn't know this and ordered two so we ended up taking the other one back and eating it the next night!

Thoroughly recommended!

“This place was so good, we ate there...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2010

This place was so good, we ate there twice during a 3 day stay in Recolleta. Not that there weren't a lot of great places to eat, but the food, atmosphere and value was so good, we could not pass it up. Pizza and Empanadas were awesome.
