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

It's years that I don't eat at Argentino and that's a pity because the food is very good and the service is friendly and professional. Prices, well what you would expect from downtown Lugano but yet worthy because of the over all experience, there are places in Lugano that charge the same or more and they are not friendly at...

Right on Lugano's main Piazza della Riforma square, the Argentino offers the best crispy pizza and comes with top class and friendly service. And it's so well positioned that you'll just want to sit and relax sipping Prosecco as you watch the city stroll by...

At first we were a little confused because there are actually two restaurants side by side that look similar. We sat in the other one and then realized the tablecloths etc were different so left that one and moved over to Argentino- loved our thin crust pizza. Fun location on the square and friendly waiter. Reasonably priced for Switzerland

I have dined at several restaurants in Lugano and this one got the best pizza. You can choose between two sizes of pizza. Argentino is located in the towns center. Great service. A strong recommendation.
