We are italians and we know something about pizza, but this one, though not the traditional italian pizza, was fantastic. The one we took was very very thick, but soft and delicious, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The place was super-full of people but the...More

Very traditional place (it was opened in 1934), lots of old posters on the walls, friendly waiter. We ordered the Fugazzetta which was tasty, with a lot of cheese and crunchy onions. I'd say our experience was average - not excellent but not bad.

When we arrived the serving staff were slow to provide menus but I think this was just due to a mix up between waiters. The empanadas were great and the pizzas were cheese loaded and gooey as is the style in BA. Drinks and food...More

Fugazzetta that's all you need to know and order. It is a pizza dough smothered with fresh mozzarella and topped with saute onions and olive oil. Amazing taste, cheesy to the max potential and just plain delicious. Is a simple joint but you can see...More

I know there are lots of choices in BA. But this place has lots of character. Even better than Guerrin IMHO. Very obliging service staff. Will let the pictures do the talking. Best Fuguzetta

Is it the best pizza in town well according to the locals it is and is certainly worth a visit the locals certainly think so as it is very crowded. The crust is nice and crunchy and the pizza in general has a good taste....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.
