Good pizza! Great place to look at all the tourists walk by. Because of the high volumn, the food is normally fresh. Good veriiaty of food.

The waiter was very friendly and had good enough English to answer our questions. The menu was in English . We ordered a pizza with carpaccio and the Brazilian pekaneh, both were excellent. Also the wine was very good . The prices are little high but for us it was worth it, best meal in all our trip.

It's difficult to find bad pizza in Lugano - bad pizzaiolos go out of business fast in Lugano. The pizzas here are small, and on average 20% more expensive than larger pizzas in neighbourhood restaurants. That's the cost of sitting in the main piazza in Lugano, watching people. The waiters are simply rude and see you for what you are... More

At first glance this place had all the tell tale signs of a tourist trap: menus in different languages, a wait staff eager to bring in patrons, credit card decals affixed to the window. After a long transatlantic flight my wife and I were tired, hungry, and desperate (but not desperate enough for the Burger King just a few yards... More

Whenever we are in Lugano we eat at Argentino. Simply the best pizza we know. They have more than pizza on the menu, but we haven't tried that yet (meat, fish, even brazilian picanha). I just noticed the last time that Argentino has been around since 1937. Very impressive. The waiters are quick and attentive, and sometimes joke with the... More

Well, there's not much more to say other than brilliant pizza!! So much so that we ate here twice in a row. My fiancé had the same thing, but I decided to try the spaghetti carbonara which was also very nice. I had a Gorgonzola and ham pizza the first night which was AMAZING!! Was so tempted to have it...

Thin crust, fresh ingredients, and comes in two sizes. The Napolitana is good but the anchovies are strong here.

We ordered soup and pizza. The food was not bad(standard), but the two dishes were served at the same time and the pizzas had to be eaten cold. The service was disappointing. We made a remark to the effect that we were not content to receive two dishes at the same time, we have not even received an apology ...
