Facundo Elvadin He is a young entrepreneur and lawyer who decided to take a break from his career to create, together with his uncle, Carlos Fernandeza restaurant that pays homage to pizza. Declared fans of the cuisine by family and porteño heritage, they tried for years and years until they came up with the recipe that they now offer to those who, walking through the city, choose a slice of pizza or an empanada on the go: an exclusive blend of flours, sourdough and a 24-hour cold maturation. The search for the place was an odyssey, until they finally found an excellent corner of Palermo (Charcas and Godoy Cruz), in front of Arcos District, where it opened its doors at the end of 2022 Holy Pizza Bar.

It is a small, yet cosy space where lighting plays a key role: it is dim at night and natural during the day. The walls are partly made of exposed brick, others are covered with stencils alluding to pizza and others with portraits by the artist Marcos Montiel. On a column, a large vertical neon sign reads “pizza for ever”.

Santo Bar de Pizzas has a large number of foreign customers, especially Brazilians. They open in the morning, with breakfasts (classic, traditional and protein-based), stuffed croissants, avocado toast, chocolate bread and parmesan scones. At lunchtime, they offer affordable three-course executive menus that complement the extensive usual menu. And a homemade pastry shop, with options such as cheesecake and carrot cake ingot, puts the finishing touch to a complete offer.

Needless to say, the star of the place is the pizza: thin, crispy and with thick edges, available in individual, medium or large formats with up to two flavors. Among the wide variety on the menu, the 2 kg Fugazzeta Rellena stands out (stuffed with mozzarella and cooked ham, topped with onions, provolone, olives and oregano) and the Gran Santo (with tomato sauce, mozzarella, cooked ham, diced provolone, fried eggs, olives and oregano), among others.

The menu also includes three types of fainá, and their empanadas—the other stars of the place—weigh 120 grams and can be ordered fried or baked. The most recommended are the braised ossobuco (with six-hour braised ossobuco, with garlic, onion, bell pepper and rosemary and integrated with caramelized carrot).

Everything is combined with a select menu of white and red wines, aperitifs and house cocktails, such as the Santo Rose (gin, triple sec, Campari, rosemary and cucumber) and the Santo Spritz (Cynar, Aperol, cider, splash of soda, slice of grapefruit and mint leaves) in this spot ideal for visiting with friends or family while strolling through Palermo in the morning, afternoon or evening.
