This place was a pretty deep drive from the centro but I do not regret going. The fugazzetta is an extremely cheesy, greasy and delicious mess of a food item. It oozes cheese, is topped with tasty onions and has a dough to die for. The crust is good too but more functional than tasty, every one I saw was... 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.

La Mezzetta has been frozen in time since the 60's, as well as the quality of their pizza. it has remain perfect since the day they opened (i don't know exactly when). The fugazzetta and muzzarela (muzza) are to die for or kill for. You MUST have them. The portion, flavor, temperature, texture are perfect. You can not forget that... More

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 be able to eat the pizza! Extremely good prices and very good food quality. Go... 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!

La Mezzetta is a place where I go every time I'm nearby. The "Fugazetta rellena" is an amazing cheese titanic with onions, it's really amazing, you must try one or two portions of it. The traditional "Mozzarella" is just great. Their empanadas are also amazing. That's all I've tried here, and I'm their client for about 15 years. This place... More

This is as good as it gets in Buenos Aires. A no-frills pizzería with spectacular pizza! Always packed to the gills with neighborhood folks, taxi drivers, guys in suits, every sector of Argentine life comes to this classic....well known for it's Fugazzetta, the plain mozzarella with fainá is great too!!
