Fodor's Review

Founded in 1934, this icon of porteño pizza tugs at the heartstrings of locals, who get misty-eyed when they think about the fresh tomato sauce and the mile-high pile of oozing mozzarella on these classics. You'll spot the occasional tourist, but the vast majority of seats will be filled by locals who've been coming here for decades. Every square inch of wall space is dedicated to posters, photos, and memorabilia of sports legends, musicians, tango dancers, and actors,

and every local has his or her cherished spot in the dining room. The best pizza? A classic mitad-mitad, or half and half—one side a straightforward tomato sauce and cheese, the other swimming with anchovies. Dessert here is a winner, with the classic flan leading the pack.

We loved this place

It was so busy and mostly locals which is always a plus. We ate here about 3 times in the month we visited. It was great value, very fun and buzzing and the pizza was delicious.

The best pizza in town

If you want to taste the real argentine pizza, not the fashion one. You must go here, the dough and the cheese is first quality. The best one. You should try Fugazzeta Rellena!!!

Great Pizza

Try El Cuartito, Talchuano 937. This is an institution in BA. It has been serving pizza since 1934. Order the Fugazzetta y Jamon pizza. You might also ask for a piece of faina. This is a piece of chick pea bread that people in Buenos Aires like to eat with their pizza.
