Siamo Nel Forno

Costa Rica 5886, Buenos Aires

(54 11) 4775-0337

Most everyone in Buenos Aires seems to have an Italian grandparent—and a favorite pizza joint. And yet, it can be surprisingly (and frustratingly) difficult to find a perfect, chewy crust. The family-run Siamo Nel Forno is one of few establishments in the city serving la vera pizza napoletana. Its name is a clever play on the Argentine expression "Estamos en el horno", which is like saying "We're toast" (literally "We're in the oven"). From almost any seat in the house, patrons can observe Nestor Gattorna, proud pizzaiolo and gracious proprietor, rotating pies in and out of his brick oven with academic precision. Meanwhile, his daughters, whom you might recognize from the collection of black-and-white family photographs covering the walls, take orders for the pizza del giorno, the traditional Margherita and the not-so-traditional but incredibly delicious white pie with nutella.
