As inhabitant of Lugano I take my family out for dinner on a regular basis.
Pizzeria Mary has a great location in the center of our beautiful city. The pizzas taste OK but the rest of the menu is, at best, mediocre.
The real bad thing about pizzeria Mary is the attitude of the majority of the waiters there. They are rude and even offensive. As soon as they believe that they are dealing with foreign tourists who are not likely to return they will start making offensive remarks and behaving rude. Their lack of respect towards the guests is almost unbelievable. I stopped spending my money there already long time ago but my wife made the mistake to take some American friends there and it was bingo again. The waiter was even making sexist remarks to my 14 year old daughter. Just unbelievable. Imagine what they will do with your food if they think that they can get away with their behavior. These people do not deserve to be in this business.
It is strongly recommended to spend your money elsewhere. Plenty of choice in Lugano.

Loved this outdoor eating area right off the lake. Stopped for a mid-afternoon pizza which was delicious and the service was great. Very popular and reasonable prices

The location of this restaurant is perfect, just in front of the lake Lugano and 50 meters from the pedestrian area and the funikular, the food is average italian food, we were served by a middle age proffesional waiter, the food was brought to the table very quick, maby too quick, we ordered two pizzas and two pasta home made dishes and a bottle of wine 50 swiss frank worth, the pizzas were very good, tastefull and crunchy, tha pasta was good nothing special. Paid 150 swiss frank alltogether.

We wanted to eat something italian and after all what happened in this VERY BAD "restaurant" we warn the people. One of the waiter was such a non educated person that after having insulted us for making a remark on his behavior he wanted to fight in the street next to the restaurant. He never excuse himself and worse he was gazing during the whole time. Since we were tired we just wanted to finish and leave. The food was not better. Spaguetti over cooked and pizza below average with its flasque crust. Horrible place but a good Tourist trap!!!
