I planned to have pizza here the previous night but accidentally sat outside at a different restaurant right next to this one. Friends had recommended the pizza here at Argentino and I wished I had tried it here. So...be careful that you are at the correct place. If you want to come to Argentino make sure you are sitting there.... More

We enjoyed dinner here on two occasions during our stay in Lugano. Pizza here was the best we had during our trip in Italy! Wine was also quite good. The humor of the wait staff was an added bonus.... they seemed to really like their jobs and made our evenings that much more enjoyable.

We couldn't found a table first day cos it was so crowded but when we booked for the next day we had several plates not only pizza. They have variety in their menu but the best pizza is the best ever not only because it's Italian but because of the characteristic way of the shape and how they present it... More

We are a couple from Maryland and we have been in lugano for 5 days long. We had dinner at ristorante Argentino where we get delighted by the italian food. At the very beginning we didn't know we might have found so many italian meals. We have been amazed by the food and the service, especially one of the server... More

We shared an Argentino Salad and a Mozzarella Pizza, along with 2 local well earned beers (one a lager and the other an amber - both quite pilsener like & suited the moment). The service was quick and attentive, these guys know their stuff, and I made comment that it was tending more toward an Italian style even though we... More

We had the octopus and prawns for starters and also a really nice pizza to share for main. All the food are well presented and delicious. The staff were really nice and friendly. They tried their best to explain to us the menu in English.

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.
