“The best pizza you can get in Lugano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

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 a surprise to find out that actually pizza is really good! It's the thinnest (my favorite) type ever and the ingredients are top notch. They rob you on beers (8.-fr) and water (5.-fr for a tiny bottle), but it's definitely worth a try as the service is efficient, the location is wonderful and pizza prices are almost like in Italy (they have two sizes and the big size is enough for two people to share if you are not super hungry). I think that the whole experience was rather pleasant.

“First time in Switzerland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

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.

“Great food, great service - Cibo ottimo, servizio pure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

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 but not least, there's free (fast!) Wifi - just ask for the password.

Siamo clienti abituali di questo ristorante. Il cibo è sempre ottimo: che sia la pizza (raccomando la Pizza Argentino), la carne, la pasta o il pesce, non siamo mai rimasti delusi. Inoltre i proprietari sono molto simpatici e riescono sempre a far sentire benvenuti i clienti. È ancora uno di quei ristoranti dove si prendono qualche minuto in più per fermarsi a chiacchierare. E infine, c'è il Wifi gratuito (veloce!), basta chiedere la password.

“Great seating in the town centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

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.
