This bustling joint is known for having some of the best pizza in town. The brick oven and thin crust make for a more authentic, Italian-style taste and texture than at most spots. Their empanadas are just as good—pick up a few and you have the perfect pastry pick-me-up during a long day's exploring. With two other branches on the main strip (one with a kids' playground and the other for more Patagonian-style dishes), the secret is out, but stick with the original pizzeria, as the locals do. If it's not crowded, you're in the wrong one.

Our group ordered pizza and pasta (caneloni verdura). It was all fantastic and we ate leftover pizza on our excursion the next day!
