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.

My friend and I ordered lunch. My friend was bought a totally different dish to the one ordered and my burger was so dry and undercooked it was terrible. The staff offered us a cup of tea as compensation. I would not recommend this place

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.

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
