With much love since 2000


humble start

From an entrepreneurial idea, Carlitos Pizzas y Empanadas was created in the mid-2000s, based on offering a new way of eating pizza in addition to the delicious Argentine empanadas. Our beginnings were humble in a garage  converted into a Pizzeria in El Cangrejo with 10 tables and a lot of love, from there with great affection we have forged many relationships that many remember to date._cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

After a few years of effort, we decided to move to Calle 54 Obarrio until we decided to move inland.


The Beach & The Mountain

Having a branch on the road to the beach was always on the cards, and when the opportunity presented itself we opened our first branch inland in San Carlos, in front of Palmar, and for more than 10 years this was our official home and factory for all products we make. In 2021 we decided that it was time to give him a permanent home and that was when we said goodbye to San Carlos to move to Sajalices, Chame.

El Valle de Antón and its beauty made us fall in love, placing a restaurant with the best possible view of India Dormida was another dream come true and from there came our baby Carlitos Pizzas El Valle de Antón. 


You sajalices!!

On May 20, 2021, we finally opened our store in Sajalices, Chame and with a lot of effort, thanks to the love that our clients offer us, we can now say we have a permanent home! A larger restaurant, with more green areas, picturesque and above all cozy.
