A pizza haunt very much favoured by the locals. Folk can order a slice at the counter and eat it at the same counter. Alternatively you can sit down and have a pizza and a beer or wine. Pictures of old football and boxing stars...More

I know there are lots of choices in BA. But this place has lots of character. Even better than Guerrin IMHO. Very obliging service staff. Will let the pictures do the talking. Best Fuguzetta

Best in the world. Order napolitana and fugazzeta with a chop and enjoy. Come early because it is always busy! The pizza is hot and the beer cold.

My colleagues recommended El Cuartito and I am glad I listened to them, great food, friendly service. The ingredients in the pizza are of great quality, Fainá (pasta mede of Garbanzo beans) combines perfectly with the pizza

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
