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.

After trying one other restaurant I ended up here as they had nice pizzas. The pizza was very nice, normal size is fine for most people, no need to go large. Took a while to get waiters attention and service was typically brusque and short as if they have 3 times as many people to serve than they can seat... More

We were seated within one second and had a bottle of water on our table immediately after that. This time efficiency continued all the way through our stay without being bothered too much. The waiter was fun and friendly. The portions of pasta and risotto might be rather small for some people (just enough for us though) but the food... More

despite the touristy location in the main square this is the best pizza in lugano. not cheap and take out is the same price as dining in so you might as well just stay. good local beers and the margherita is spot on. get the 'plated' pizza rather than the 'sliced' pizza which is cheaper and appears to be larger....

Good pizza, I recommend them rather than the salads. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Friendly staff. Busy place though during holiday season.

Nice, thin-crust pizza that comes in two sizes. Order large if you're sharing or if very hungry! I ordered a Gorgonzola pizza (recommended if you like Blue or Roquefort cheese).

Restaurant was full when I came. No free table, more than hundred people, everyone busy. Waiter approached me after seconds, brought chairs and table from somewhere. Within 2 minutes I had a place to sit. Pizza that I ordered was excellent and I didn't have to wait long for my order. I can only say good places about Argentino. I... More
