“Best pizza, great location, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I have been for many years a regular customer at Argentino and I must say that they have the best pizza I ever ate. Thin, juicy, crunchy and tasty... better than in my home country Italy, so that's saying something!

It is ideally located in the heart of the small old town of Lugano, few steps away from the lake. Even so, prices are rather low (for Switzerland) and value for money ratio is excellent. Staff is also very friendly and professional.

Only cons are that tables are a bit crammed together and in the summer there are people smoking in the open air part of the restaurant (most of it is open air), which can be annoying. Also, the pizza chef typically likes to put origano on your pizza, so if you don't like it, make sure you stress that!

“Crowded, must be popular.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Food was more moderately priced than some. Seemed popular with families but all ages were seen and packed in. Service OK for such a busy place.

“Very good pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The best pizza that I ever had was at Pizzeria Argentino. Good customer service too! The only downside was people smoke everywhere ( this is not the restaurant fault) therefore it was very uncomfortable having someboby next to you smoking when you're eating

The food is fresh and good, not just the pizzas but other dishes are well made too. During jazz festival, they had put up a outdoor are serving probably the best sangria. The staff is friendly and kept serving us complimentary bites on our second visit
