This place has very good selection for empanadas and empanadas like baked foods, that I would recommend for an introduction to one of Argentinas staple food. If the weather permits head to up to the terrace.

Had very pleasant empanadas and Napolitano pizza. Pizza had good crust - though too thick - and far too heavy on topping but tasty enough. Service was OK. Nice for an hour or so.

Ordered pizza delivery few times, each time wrong, each time full of cheese, overly salty ham, and no tomato sauce but extra addition: hair. Each time they only say I am sorry and no compensation or possibility to return. DO NOT GO!!!!

Excellent and cheap place. Great pizza and terrific service, very fast according to the local standards. The portions are huge so better share everything.

In BA, you will probably see pizza and empanadas on every block, 5% of them will be good. Most of this small percentage will be given by Romario. Amazing empanadas and the pizza is pretty decent.

Like most Argentine pizza, the pies here have lots of cheese. I always ask for "poco queso." On the other hand, if you love cheese, try "fugazza," which is loaded with queso. I've enjoyed eating here numerous times. They have individual sized pies for solo travelers and even individual "porciones." Brahma beer is on tap, and cold. The terrace is... More

Average pizza; don't go out of your way, as local places are probably better. It does take credit cards, though, and is gret for those of us whobhave been burned out on meat.

We ordered some pizza and other items for dinner, and in addition to it being late (and thus cold) they brought us the wrong pizza. We are Argentinian so I know it was not a language issue. When we phoned them to say we received the wrong pizza, they were completely rude and essentially told us too bad. They made... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
