We ended up here because it was close to our hotel. The service was fast and very friendly. The pizza was really good, very thin dough, lovely fresh ingredients. The ham was much less salty and tastier than is often the case. We both had...More

We enjoyed our lunch at this restaurant in Lugano. Lovely setting and wonderful service. The insalata Argentino was great and I would recommend it to visitors to the city.

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

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.
