Come here only when you are in Lugano. Try the fired Pizza, you are going to love it. You have to book a table before coming.

I ate 3 times Here. In 2 cases the pizza wasn't cooked enough and during the night it looked a bit heavy. Prices are at Swiss levels where I think is not fair considering that pizza is one of the cheapest meal in the world. Try the pastiera cake 'homemade' but expensive. To be improved

The pizza here is really neapolitan and is really good: soft, crispy pasta and all fresh top quality ingredients. I am very picky with pizza and mozzarella on it and here they use the real fresh mozzarella and not that dubitous "semi-fresh" and "semi-hard" already grated cheese.

Loved the pizza at Neapolis ... closest I've had to Roma pizza in a long time. Good vibe with a view of the lake outside. Everyone seemed quite happy with their food in the entire restaurant. Their white pizzas looked great as did the other items coming out of the kitchen! Highly recommended!

While staying at the Villa Castalugano, we wanted to have pizza and a movie night with the kids and this place is a block away. Amazing wood fire pizza, great service and friendly staff. I would make a return for a sit down meal to take advantage of the views.

We randomly stopped here for a late night dinner. They have a limited menu (mostly pizzas) with a few specialties. When we were seated we were told if we wanted a pasta to speak to the chef. We were able to tell the chef what type of sauce and pasta we enjoyed and it was cooked to order. it was... More
