Empanadas and bread were great! Comparable to Argentina. Pizzas were a disappointment. Too much cheese. Tango music would have been a plus and improved the ambience.
Good pizza, good wine, excellent service.
I have always loved BA Pizza and I always will. I love going into a local establishment where you are welcomed like an old friend.
I like this place. Food is very distinctive
their empanadas are amazing, but their pizza is AWFUL!!!! the crust is too thick, there are almost no toppings and many are of poor quality, and the amount of cheese they put on the pizza is so excessive most of the people in our party left feeling sick. Maybe skip the pizza and just continue to make the amazing empanadas. Although those are significantly overpriced.
The empandas were delicious, however the pizza was a complete disappointment. The pizza crust was thick all the way through, hardly any pizza sauce on it, and even though it was a 5-cheese pizza it wasn't very cheesy. The Gelato was OK but not stellar either. I would only go back for the empanadas and nothing else. The service was mediocre.
Make reservations!!! We got lucky because there were patio tables available!
Food was unbelieveable. And be sure to have the gelato!!!
TRY THE BACON WRAPPED FIGS - THEY ARE TO DIE FOR!!!!!
Always save room for gelato!
friendly service. Especially loved the fig, bacon and cheese empanada. The pizza had a nice thick crust and interesting toppings.
Food was just ok. Service was just OK too.
From Our Editors
The United States isn't the only place where Italian immigrants have made an indelible mark on the local cuisine. But while American pizza generally errs on the side of thin crust, notes USA Today, Argentinian pizza starts with "thick, bready crust" crowned with heaps of onions and cheese. The Carrera family's Buenos Aires Pizzeria, the newspaper continues, walks "a middle ground" with a hand-tossed, medium-sized crust. Flavored with housemade tomato sauce or olive oil, these pies arrive topped with everything from spinach and prosciutto to chorizo and mint leaves, an ideal ingredient for pizza you'd rather kiss than eat. In addition to nearly 40 specialty pizzas, the eatery accommodates diners of all stripes with customizable pies and gluten-free crust.
Pizza isn't the only thing the Carrera clan crafts by hand. Made from scratch, traditional and open-faced empanadas sport nearly 30 fillings, from butternut squash and carrot to a medley of bacon, cheese, and fig. For dessert, try over 35 gelato flavors—such as chocolate almond and mango—made in-house daily. While cooks work tirelessly in the open kitchen, bartenders serve wines hailing exclusively from Argentina, including four varieties of malbec.
