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.

The hamburguer was excelent, however it took ages until someone from the staff came to talk to us. The restaurant was a bit noisy due to is specificities and so everyones conversation was your own, and vice-versa.

I was here for dinner. The staff was friendly and the food was above average. I got a Lasagne, that was too small in my opinion. But the Lasagne, Risotto and the pizza was good.

Pizza and beer once a week are good for older folks like me. Were I younger, I'd go there most nights. The selection of pizza is enormous (3 pages of the menu). The crust is thin, the toppings of average quantity (but one can append by way of 'extra' amounts of parmesan, ham, anchovies etc.). Beer is cold and service... More

Very attentive and friendly service. I had the shrimp risotto which they made from scratch which was excellent. My dining companions had the beef fillet which was also very good. Although we did not have the pizza they looked very good.

I'm living in Lugano since about 1 1/2 year and up to now the best pizza I ate in this city is here. Considering that the restaurant is usually very busy (being in the center of the city), the service is good and the staff friendly and committed. Also the price is quite honest considering Lugano's standards. Hope to not... More
