This is a restaurant that we often eat at if we want to have pizzas or pasta. Their pizzas are delicious and the larger ones are rectangular not round, with a thin, crisp base. The smaller ones are the more traditional, round shape with the same crisp base and are usually sufficient for most people, although I prefer the larger... More

This is a pleasant restaurant with good pizzas (thin base, Italian style). The service is friendly but the waiter was a bit of a salesman. He encouraged us to go for bigger pizzas than we needed, tried to sell us expensive bottled water (as they seem to do everywhere here) despite the tap water being of excellent quality, and ensured...

I have been to this restaurant countless of times. Ever time it has been great. My food review is only based on the pizza. It is something special, thin base and a very nice shape. The location is very good and perfect for a after dinner stroll along the lake.

Liked it here. The prices were most reasonable (of course in Lugano's standards), staff were very welcoming and cheerfull and the food was good. And although the dtaff kept shooing the sparrows off, i found them to be quite cute haha!

Absolutely wonderful food, great service. The restaurant was full but the staff was very professional and prompt. Pasta and soup were very good. Steak was great. Home made deserts were excellent. Wonderful atmosphere. Great location, easy to find. Would love to be back!

Did not enjoy my lunch there, pasta was cold and probably reheated but it is a popular place and tourists like it I believe and have been told that the pizzas are good there. But there are other good restaurants on this piazza if you are looking for a good meal

Thin + crispy crust, plus great topping selection. Two sizes to choose from. Usually very friendly and attentive service. You can't go wrong! We've tried other pizza providers in town, but Argentino's is the best for pizza.

The oval pizza on this very thin and crispy dough is fantastic! The staff is very friendly and efficient. The atmosphere outside (winter garden) is not romantic, but you can watch the people passing by. They have a wide choice of Italian food on the menu and the prices are are reasonable for the location.

Managed to find three spots for my parents and I on our visit to Lugano (extremely busy it being around lunchtime!). Staff was very friendly and efficient (speedy but not rushing us). I had Risotto Milanese which was really good and my folks had pasta. All was quite enjoyable and meal was not that expensive (at least compared to the... More
