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 ...

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

Dear Shirotiro, thank you for sharing your opinion with the public. We are sorry that you did not found a table the first evening, we usually have a short list of waiting tables which do not wait more than 15 minutes. We are proud to hear that you loved our "not" traditional pizza! Marco has recently started with us and... More
