If you want to have dinner there you must arrive early! It gets really crowded! We arrived around 7:30pm and it was ok. When we left had a long line of ppl waiting. We started with Empanadas. And I had the ham with cheese and...More

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.

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

Our second night in Argentina we were told to try the Fugazetta. This place was among the list and we were glad we went. Even though we could hardly speak any Spanish, the waiter suffered through our butchering of his language with great humour and...More

Our hotel doorman recommended this on Friday evening. He did not mention that the wait in line on the street would be long, so at first we were miffed; however, after waiting in line for almost 40 mintues....it was totally worth it! The place was...More

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.
