Our family ate here a couple of times, returning to try the margherita pizza, which is very good. Recommended if you are in the neighborhood.

I went a lot of times there. And I will never undestand wich is the reason to be always complete and with a lot of people outside waiting for a table or a chair...The place is more or less funny, not serious not elegant, not...a modern place, and the attention is dynamic, close to nervoussss. The pizza is not alla pietra, no no no, is gross and oily. The prices are not cheap...A very big mistery to Me. But WHO CARES!!! Go and do Your experience!!! ah, take Your time and after tell Me about it!!!More

The best pizza I had in my life. Friendly atmosphere. Very basic surroundings but the pizza delicious. Never saw a place with line ups of a 100 mts for take outs in a week day (after 7 pm till 12)

I love El Cuartito! You feel like you are in a pizza joint in 1930s Buenos Aires. It's loud and extremely busy. The "Fugazza" pizza (with onions and no cheese) is extraordinary. The Quilmes beer is great and you can have wine or soda as...well. Their empanadas are the best in the world.More

The place is a must see but the pizza is not worthy. I’d go for a beer to say you’ve been there and eat elsewhere

El Cuartito is an old pizzeria in Downton , you can eat per slices o complete pizza, seat down or stand at the bar. Very recomended place. My favourite "fugazetta", onion and cheese pizza

Hmmmmmmm......this place was recommended to us by a friend who lives in B. A. So, we went. A little hard to find, but we did. Bustling, busy, busy. Stand in this line for to-go food, that one to sit at a table. Wait in line,...watch the pizzas coming out, watch the waiters go hither, thither and yon. Take photos of the pizza as it comes out, of the waiters moving here and there. Now being led to the table. Review the extensive menu. Nice to have Spanish on one side corresponding to English on the other. Only a limited number of pizza selections come by the slice. Okay, that narrows down our choices. A lot. Two of us pick the anchovy pizza, one orders a mozzarella ham and the other I can’t remember, but that’s okay because it is not what was served to him. And we ordered three beers. There are four of us, and the waiter comes with three plates. Hmmmmm.....we request a fourth. He brings a fourth. We wait a while. And wait. Our beers finally arrive. Good draft beers in a mug and pretty cold, so good. Then we wait some more. We try to strategically slow our drinking so there is some left for when the pizza arrives. The pizza arrives....almost. Three slices. Four orders. (Remember the three plates? Should have known it was going to be a possible problem.). Here’s the blueprint on the anchovy pizza. Nice sauce, lots of anchovies. No cheese. Really? No cheese on pizza? (Definition of pizza: a flat, open-faced baked pie of Italian origin, consisting of a thin layer of bread dough topped with spiced tomato sauce and CHEESE, often garnished with anchovies, sausage slices, mushrooms, etc.) NO CHEESE????? Okay, the description did not say cheese, but come on, that’s a given with pizza!!! We finished our pizza slices (three of us), with one order being totally wrong, but it was pizza, and waited on the slice for our friend. Well, we ordered another beer. The pizza slice for our friend finally came, but the beer did not. Anchovy pizza without beer. Just not right (as anchovies are salty), plus our friend had to eat slice of pizza alone. We thought to cancel the next beers and had asked for the check, but then the beers finally came. Oh, and the pizza slices, by the way, all of them, were not hot. Room temperature. Bottom line: We thank the restaurant for a truly unforgettable experience, a story we will tell forever, but, if we went back, we would only order a whole pizza to go, take it home and reheat it in the oven, and pull out our own beer from the refrigerator. In hindsight, the to-go line was a lot longer than the “be seated” line. We get it........now. On a positive note, the sauce on the anchovy pizza was really nice and the anchovies were plentiful and delicious.More
