We found this classic place by accident during our walk through the Boca district. It really has a nice old-timer feel and offers great pizza. We tried several different sorts and all were really good. The drinks are a bit pricey in comparison with pizza slices. We loved it so much we paid them a visit again at the end... More

In the neighborhood that never sees to amazed their audience you will find banchero. The best pizza place in la Boca, by far... Perhaps not the best in buenos aires. The one thing that they have that can't be compared is their "fugazzeta" sweet mother of god, best thing ever, if you are close, don't think about it... GO!!

We enjoyed a nice slice of pizza and a variety of other things like mussels and the traditional fugazza. There is a friendly atmosphere among customers and waiters, the restaurant has over one hundred years of history and is very popular in the area, probably one of the oldest in Boca. Hihgly recommendable.

This shops been around for over 100 years and it's clear why. The food is so good and filling not to mention the people are so old school. You really feel like eating comfort food

When attending a football game in La Boca, I highly recommend that you stop by Banchero before the game. The place was packed with Boca Junior fans but the wait staff worked to assure that we were seated and served quickly. The food was both tasty and plentiful for the price. My wife and I enjoyed the pizza and hope... More

If you can forget the service quality, you will be able to enjoy which is, probably, the best pizza in town. Inside the theatre area, in Corrientes Avenue.

Great service, amazing pizza. I have eaten in so many pizzerias in Buenos Aires, including famous Guerrin, but this one is definitely the best one! We went to the original Banchero located in La Boca - the neighborhood is not so nice, but if you go by taxi or by bus, that leaves you somewhere close to Banchero you should... More

I travel to Argentina once a year, and Banchero is definitively one of my stops. Don't expect a fine atmosphere. This is Banchero, this is the real Buenos Aires. Huge windows and wood frames. Waiters are like they used to be. They'll remember your order, even if it's a 12 people table. Also, don't expect a light meal. These are... More

With a pizza recipe handed down through 3 generations and a restaurant surviving 80 years in Buenos Aires, Banchero's must be doing something right...the pizza is tasty and the service fast. There is a wide variety available on the menu, but the pizza was what I went for. Order a slice with faina or a pizza to share, but try... More

Staying in La Boca

Neighbourhood Profile
La Boca
A neighbourhood defined by its immigrant roots, La Boca still maintains this past alive in its streets today. Due to its proximity to the river, the neighbourhood became the preferred settling area for immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up living together in the conventillos. Thus, these houses became a melting pot of different cultures and traditions that birthed creations like tango and lunfardo. Nowadays, this legacy can be seen and felt on Caminito Street, which welcomes visitors with colourful facades, cobblestones, and street artists showcasing their skills. Just like its neighbor San Telmo, La Boca is one of the prime destinations to experience the traditions and customs that originated from the city’s immigrant past and which have shaped its distinct identity.
