We tried 3 types of pizza and 3 types of empanadas and all were excellent. Simple but very flavourful. It is a casual eatery that is very busy and very noisy but is a fun place to be. Service is very efficient. Given the lineups...More

There are a few pizzerias from the 1930's in Buenos Aires. This is one of the best. Great pizzas, good empanadas, some desserts, no coffee, and one of the busiest.

It is one of the most famous restaurants for a pizza in Buenos Aires (on a Tuesday, at 10 pm there was a huge queue waiting for a place). It is a simple restaurant, with a lively atmosphere, crowded with locals of all ages and...More

Went for the empanadas and also because it was walking distance from my hotel. The empanadas were good, though not the best I had in the city, the service was good. But the best part was just watching the local scene on a Friday night....More

When nearing to famous El Cuartito in Retiro district, BA, and looking at its vintage sign we felt like in a street of Manhattan. More Spanish Harlem vibes inside in the large room packed with noisy happy local families. Socios club deco, school canteen setting,...More

Great place, good atmosphere, good food. Football was on the TV which always adds to the atmosphere in a restaurant in Argentina!

This was promoted to us as a classic place to go for Argentinian pizza. If so, Argentinian pizza is best avoided; it is really not worth eating. The service was also terrible, in fact the server avoided us so systematically, that we were ultimately forced...More

I had the fugazzetta, sublime! The place is decorated with tons of pictures of famous people, paintings, old movie posters... a piece of Buenos Aires' memory, a must see and eat!

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.
