Very good pizza and nice armosphere

There for just a pizza with friends and kids, very nice location simple atmosphere. Pizza is excellent, small so you need something more to be happy but luckily desserts are really good and portion generous Good beers. Last Romeo had the pasta and was fantastic

First of all when we walked in, Salvatore shook our hands and introduced himself to both of us. Next, we were seated and introduced to his sister. hands shaken and... More

Lots of people, which was a good sign. When ordered the pasta, it came in a big plate but the portions are rather small. Pizzas seemed to have been a better choice, as well as meat lovers liked the location. Don't go for pasta, it's too tiny.

To say the truth, we've only heard a lot of good things about this pizzeria but have never tried it out and preferred always to go to Italy ("Cardamomo", Como) instead. We had few pizza experiences in Lugano but they were so disappointing, that's it's not worth mentioning.... Well, I don't regret we finally went there! It was sort of... More

The restaurant is a few metres from my daughters apartment. Given the decent wine list this is a blessing! Friendly staff good food and a tolerance of our poor attempts at basic Italian. A good night out with family.

We are regulars of this restaurant. The food is always great: be it the pizza (I recommend the Pizza Argentino), the meat, the pasta or the fish, we were never disappointed. Also, the owners really get out of their way to make you feel welcome and always take that extra minute to stop for a chat with the customers. Last... More

Great pizza served on a wooden board! Sip Prosecco or even a Guinness. But they have all sorts of good food and drinks. Best of all you get to see Lugano's main Piazza della Riforma, the most central location we're all strollers come and go.
