“One of the best Pizzeria in town”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

When I am really hungry and want a crunchy pizza, I always go to this Pizzeria by Piazza Riforma. Do not mix this up with the pizzeria near this one, named Tango: the pizza by Argentino is very good, crunchy and if you want you can grab the "Pizza al tagliere", that means a thin pizza served over a wooden large dish. The cost of the pizza is above the average but the taste is better.

“The best...”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

This was probably the best pizza I´ve ever had! Very, very good. I really appreciated that the food is the focus. Also the red wine and the espresso I had were just of the top quality you expect from a traditional Italian restaurant that manages to keep its familiar atmosphere even though it has such a central location.

“More than pizza & better than next door”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

We frequent Argentino for their crispy pizzas, but they also have a diverse menu of pastas and other fare. Adults and children are fans with something for everyone. Lots of action on the Piazza Riforma to entertain you. Service is quick to welcome you in (and prevent you from entering the competition next door), but sometimes less attentive when seated. Pizzas are 100 times better than the soggy pizzas at Tango next door!
