Where to get it

Pizza is the food that best represents our Italian roots. There are lots of pizzerias in the city, but we have our favorites.

Pizza is usually cheap, and it is sold in portions, so don’t miss out on trying as many as you can!

Almost all the pizzerias have a bar and there you can eat standing up. It is a very good alternative if you do not have time or do not want to wait, since the attention is immediate.

El Cuartito

Located in Barrio Norte, very close to Recoleta, this is a typical Buenos Aires pizzeria.

The atmosphere and decoration is very characteristic of the pizzerias of Buenos Aires.

On weekends and evenings in general it is a very popular place, so maybe you should wait a bit to get a table or a place at the bar to eat standing.

Recommendation to ask: Fugazzeta, fainá. To drink: Moscato. Dessert Tarantella.


Tio Felipe

This is undoubtedly the best pizzeria in San Telmo. It has a precious space with tables on the sidewalk, so it is ideal for summer evenings and to be in contact with the cobblestones and the atmosphere of the neighborhood.

The chairs and tables do not match each other, that gives a touch of originality, which was undoubtedly not planned.

It is located in a small passage, but with the help of google maps you will not have problems in arriving.

Recommendation to order: Fugazzeta rellena, Napolitana, Provolone, Fainá. Drink: Moscato



The pizzeria Angelin is one of the references of Villa Crespo neighborhood. It works there since 1938.

The decoration and distribution of the place is a typical Buenos Aires pizzeria. Without a doubt, visiting this pizzeria is like a trip to the past.

The attention of the waiters is also to highlight, it resembles the waiters of the 80 ‘, of those who did not need to write at the time of taking the order.

Recommendation to order: pizza canchera, fugazzeta rellena, muzzarella. Drink: Moscato


El Mazacote

If you are willing to get away from the tourist area of San Telmo, this is a very good option.

Located in the neighborhood of Monserrat, this pizzeria remains the same as when it opened there in 1981, even some of its clients seem to have been arrested in time.

If you have the opportunity, eat at the bar and see the dynamics between waiters-chefs-bar staff.

Far from using systems that include screens, orders for tablets and others, the request for orders among staff seems to be through telepathic communication.

The waiter approaches the bar, it seems that he recites his order on the air, all the rest of the staff records it. But while they keep talks with their customers, prepare orders and continue cooking. Then the order is perfect (no errors due to system crashes).

Recommendation to ask: fainazzeta, fugazzeta rellena, muzzarella. Dessert: flan with dulce de leche and cream.
