Started in 1934, El Cuartito is among the best of the best when it comes to pizza in Buenos Aires. Located in Barrio Norte, a few blocks from Recoleta, El Cuartito survives thanks to its delicious variety of simple pizzas and empanadas and the customers that fill the place at all hours of the day. Its walls lined with boxing and soccer memorabilia and two huge menus dedicated to pizza/empanadas and desserts, El Cuartito offers the true Buenos Aires pizzeria experience. The pizzeria is very big and you have the option to sit down and be served by the old-school waiters or you can stand and eat by the popular table by the entrance. If you want the full El Cuartito pizza experience, order your pizza slices and empanadas and then wrestle your way over to join the locals at the standing room only table. With a delicious slice of fugazzetta in one hand and a golden-brown carne picante empanada in the other, you will quickly forget about the hungry crowd of locals who’d do anything for your spot at the table. Come for the pizza and empanadas and if you have room…the delicious desserts.
