Very disappointing. I ordered the fish and chips. Seen it earlier in the day and it looked good. Tiny portion of reheated fish nuggets and stale crisps rather than hot chips. No explanation. They must have run out of chips. Husband had veal which also tasted as though it had been reheated. Nice potatos. Stick to the pizza is my... More

The staff is friendly to English speaking people, in fact our server was polite and fantastic. The food was definitely the best in Lugano. Got seated and food within a timely manner. The food was some of best priced in Switzerland. We had pizza and it was superb. Great location, not far from the lake.

We visit this restaurant many times in each visit to Lugano. The food is great , the pizza so thin and tasteful. The service is excellent. It is one of my favorite restaurants because no matter what you order is always good and it has quality.

Really superb pizza - we ordered the long pizza which has a really thin base and comes on an oblong wooden board - fantastico! Best we had in the whole time in Lugano. Pasta with mushrooms, chicken and cream was also good,... More

Pizza was one of the best I have had in my life. Altrough the pizza was freshly made and the ingredients were good and quality. Not to expensive in my opinion.

We stopped for lunch upon the recommendation of our daughter who had visited previously. We sat outside on a cloudless day in 30c. It was a nice setting and we were quickly attended to by a very friendly waiter. There was a varied menu at reasonable prices and we ordered our lunch which was delivered in a timely fashion. The...

We had an awesome experience at Argentino. They serve some of the best pizza we ever had. I highly recommend the Gorgonzola one.
