Guerrín, traditional pizza in Buenos Aires

Guerrín is one of the traditional pizza places in Buenos Aires.  No glamour, nothing fancy, just plain authentic Argentine pizza to enjoy seated or standing at the bar (I recommend the second option to have a true Buenos Aires pizza experience).

Located in the heart of the theatre district (Corrientes Avenue), people have a fast pizza before rushing to the theatre or enjoy it after theatre at 2am in the morning.  As most of the places in Corrientes, it closes very late in the morning as most the Porteños going to theaters and movies tend to dine after the event.   In daytime, you will see many people who work in the thousands of lawyers and accountants offices nearby.

Pizzaería Guerrin was founded by Franco Malvezzi in 1932.  Malvezzi, a theater lover himself picked a place in the heart of Avenida Corrientes, close to the main theaters in Buenos Aires.

As with all the traditional pizza places in Buenos Aires, the recommendations are the mozzarela (call it “moosa”), napolitana (tomato, mozzarella, garlic), fugazza (onion), fugazzetta (onion and cheese) and anchovies (anchovies and tomato sauce).  Have them with a chopp (draft beer) or a glass of moscato (amber sweet and spirited wine).

It opens daily at 8am and closes anytime around 2am-4am.  The Guerrín address is Corrientes 1368, between Uruguay and Talcahuano.
