El Cuartito

Talcahuano 937, Buenos Aires

(54 11) 4816-1758

El Cuartito's crusts are thick and doughy, draped unapologetically in dense, oozy mozzarella and liberally spangled with jamón (ham) and morrón (roasted red pepper). Authentic Neapolitan pizza this is not, but you're unlikely to find a slice—or a setting—that's more categorically porteño. Tango memorabilia and photos of Diego Maradona cover the walls, which are painted a patriotic fútbol blue. The boisterous dining rooms are packed nightly until 1:00 am with families digging into the local favorite "Fugazzeta" (a white pie topped simply but unsparingly with onions and cheese) and abuelitos with pleading eyes, who gesticulate to the harried waiters as if they've been waiting for a round of Quilmes since the joint opened in 1934.
