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.

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).

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

Fast, efficient, delicious. 3 qualities of this unique spot in the busy square. Ask for the large one, which can be shared.

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
