It has been a while since I visited the Cuartito and I was wondering if it would be the same from 4 years ago. To my delight the atmosphere and the folks there still have that very friendly Argentine charm. We went late, at 2...More

The moment I sunk my teeth into the tender crust of my first slice of El Cuartito pizza, I knew I was changed for good. I shall never eat the "pizza" of the United States of America ever again, as it tastes like soggy cardboard...More

Don't expect a fancy decor. It is noisy and you will probably have to queue for 20 minutes. But if you love pizza and empanadas and enjoy a restaurant full this is your treat. In the city centre, Retiro neighbourhood. Good value for excellent food....More

One of the best empanada we have eaten. This is where the locals go. Old restaurant but still plenty of customers. Wall is adorned by Diego Maradona jerseys and other sport stars.

We tried 3 types of pizza and 3 types of empanadas and all were excellent. Simple but very flavourful. It is a casual eatery that is very busy and very noisy but is a fun place to be. Service is very efficient. Given the lineups...More

There are a few pizzerias from the 1930's in Buenos Aires. This is one of the best. Great pizzas, good empanadas, some desserts, no coffee, and one of the busiest.

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.
