    El Cuartito: The authentic and traditional pizza porteña!

    El Cuartito

    This place was opened in 1934. Its walls are covered with photographs of popular sportsmen, musicians, singers, actors and actresses; box posters, drawings, maps, and football clubs' pennants.
    The atmosphere you get there is the same as the one from the 1930s: the chairs, the price list over the counter, the wine served in a jar, the waiters...
    Pizza is definitely one of our specialties due to the Italian immigrants who came here in the last century.
    If you're up for pizza... DO go to this place! It's a must!

    Favorite Dish: Specialties: pizza with fainá and moscato (a sweet wine).

    El Cuartito Pizzeria: the best pizza!!!

    El Cuartito, "the little room", and that's exactly what this joint is. Opened in 1934, it still has the same cham. It's nothing fancy, just the best pizza in BA, complete with faina, a "chick pea cake" that you put on top of your slice. Amazing! There is a pizza without either tomato sauce or cheese which is really delicious. Fugazza is a pizza crust topped only with sliced onions and a touch of oregano. When done well, the onions brown nicely and it is quite tastey. It's a great place to watch the futbol game or go to afterwards.
