You have to wait in line for half an hour but it is very well worthwhile Great Pizza, slow service. Gluten free pizza available (not in the menu)

While I enjoyed my experience at El Cuartito, over all, the food was not exactly to my taste. Perhaps it was because I ordered the wrong pie. I had the Provolone which was thick with cheese and thin with tomato sauce. I should have gone...More

A pizza classic in BA. You can't miss the fugazzetta, that is what is all about. Cheap and traditional. Go for it.

Not much more to say. The best pizza in Buenos Aires, surrounded by years of Argentinian culture and icons.

I used to go to this place all the time when I lived in Argentina, I have to say that this is the best Pizza in Buenos Aires , delicious Empanadas , the place is decorated with old sport pictures .

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.
