Having lived in Italy for years, it is hard to impress me with a good pizza. While the pizza bread could be better, the cheese on top was very fresh and delicious. The place is open during the entire day. The service is good, pretty...More

We had checked with our guide about where to eat close to the opera house. We all decided that given the timing, and given the specialty, the answer was pizza at El Cuartito. Over the many years, there were a large number of Italians (more...More

If you're out for a bustling place with walls covered with soccer players' photos and you don't know the difference between mozzarella and plain cheese, then this is the place for you. If good pizza is what you're looking for, go a few blocks down...More

A local friend of mine took me to El Cuartito for dinner and it the pizza was awesome. I did not expect Buenos Aires to be a pizza town but there is an Italian influence there. Great service and everyone was having a good time....More

Literally, my favorite pizza on earth. The pizza loaded with onions would not normally appeal to me but once I tried it I’ve never gone back to anything else. Don’t miss this classic!

Normally long queues. Open to wee hours. Fantastic pizza especially the extra mozzarella. Simple dining room and rustic wooden tables and chairs. The food is unbelievable but can't comment on the dessert.... never had room.

Don't become confused with this restaurant. They do not serve anything other than pizza and empanadas with you're favorite drink (wine, cerveza and sodas) Tha flavors are typical of the argentinian italian style.

Great portions and variety of pizza. Good beer. Ask for patagonia’s pale ale beer and try this place is always packed but worth it! The calabressa pizza is one of the best!!!
