Famoso per la sua pizza (sottile, croccanete, poco lievitata, digeribile), il ristorante Argentino è situato nella centralissima Piazza Riforma a Lugano, denominata il “salotto di Lugano”.Il pranzo comodo e veloce, per chi non ha molto tempo ma allo stesso tempo desidera gustare un buon pasto, e la cena per chi invece vuole rilassarsi e godersi la serata. Tutto questo ed altro viene proposto da un team esperto e motivato che da anni s’impegna a dare un ottimo ed attento servizio soddisfando le esigenze di ogni singolo cliente.

Great pizza

Stopped here for a pizza on a Sunday evening. Really busy, but the waiter was fantastic. I had the Gorgonzola prosciutto pizza. The large was huge, probably only needed the small. Great pizza, great service and good value.

In line with any Piazza in this part of the world the vibe was lively. Lots of people walking around the square. We sat on the square but there are tables inside which were a little quieter. The food was standard Italian quality, nothing special but nice for a quick dinner and a few beers.

Service was not so great. Pizza quite disappointing, most likely with tomato sauce coming directly out of the can. Spaghetti with anchovy sauce with no anchovy to be seen nor tasted.

On a rainy night they were able to squeeze us in with about a 5 minute wait. Thank you. Then great service. The pizza is delightfull and thin.. The salad entrees were good size. The one suggestion was perfect. A great place that we will go back to!

The staff is friendly, although they are not always readily available, despite the fact that somethimes they have nothing to do. But... the calzone is very very good and is extra large. It is known in Lugano for the special burgers and the special pizzas but that calzone its the spot just right

A good spot on the Piazza Riforma. Can dine in and outdoors throughout the year, they have heaters and an enclosed area for the winter. We eat here fairly regularly as their pizza's are so good, the base is very thin and crispy. Staff and service is always good and prices are reasonable for Lugano.

Very tasty, generous size, not rounded but very elliptically stretched, nicely served in a wood dish. Service friendly If you like thin crusted pizza this is your place. Been here multiple times.
