Despite the name this restaurant does not serve Argentine food. It serves typical Northern Italian fare and lots of different pizzas. My buddy and I stumbled upon this place after looking all over Lugano for a good place to eat that wouldn't destroy our budget. We were still suffering from sticker shock from how costly everything seemed to be in Switzerland. We came across this lovely vibrant piazza near, but hidden from, the lakeside promenade. There were 4 restaurants here, all with outdoor dining of course. Three of them were highly priced as seemed to be typical in this country. Then in the midst of them we found this bustling place Argentino, which was about one-third to half the cost of everywhere else in town. We were skeptical at first, but decided to suffer through a relatively cheap meal. It was the right decision, but we far from suffered. The service was quite friendly and the varied menu had lots of tasty local dishes. The local wine was nice and fairly cheap by American standards. We enjoyed our meals so much, that the 3 days we were in Lugano we ate there. Normally that is not a practice of mine, but when the food is so good, the atmosphere so inviting, and the price differential so significant, some rules are meant to be broken.
