Pizzeria In Lugano
Acqua e Farina
This is our recommended pizzeria when dining out with friends or loved ones for a fun night out.
The Acqua e Farina restaurant is not large but comfortable and you can breathe the typical air of a Neapolitan pizzeria. They have a good organized menu with starters, pizzas and also desserts.
Some of the pizzas you an find on the menu include the classics, the special pizzas, and a small selection of pan pizzas – which also include some delicious vegetarian options. The best part, they do different sizes too, so you can take a small for yourself, or a larger one to share!
Together with some local wine, eating pizza at Acqua e Farina is a special night out for everyone.
Prices: Pizzas range from 15.00 CHF to 36.00 CHF based on sizes and toppings
Should You Book A Table? Yes absolutely – it’s a small place and worth making sure you get a table, else you may be waiting a long time!

To be truthful, this is our favourite place for pizza in Lugano. This is based on a number of things;
Their pizzas are delicious, freshly made and cooked in the pizza oven inside. If you choose to take a table inside you can see them prepare the pizzas.
Their location is perfect after a city walk. Their restaurant is located right in the city centre with both indoor and outdoor seating available. When it’s a late Summer’s night, outdoor seating is the best choice!
Furthermore, they have plenty of seating, which means even on a busy Saturday you won’t have to wait long for a table and a reservation is not usually required. So choosing this place last minute is perfect!
Prices: Pizzas range from 13.50 CHF to 19.00 CHF
Should You Book A Table? Yes if with a big group or visiting during a busy season!
This is our recommended pizzeria when wanting to sit outside in the sunshine!
The restaurant of Mary is a great place that has a a wide range of dishes to choose from. Of course we focus in this post on the pizzeria choices. Mary has a few pages of pizzas that you can choose from, so you’ll very likely find your favourite! However you will also find a few nice choices that you may want to try too.
For the pizza, they are great. Freshly made, topped with good ingredients and the thin style. The edges were crispy but not overcooked, for those who like to eat this too!
For the location, its just off from the main promenade of the lake, and just behind the main Piazza della Riforma of Lugano. So it’s easily reachable for all. They have outdoor seating for when its warm, else plenty of indoor seating.
Prices: Pizzas range from 18.00 CHF to 26.00 CHF
Should You Book A Table? We didn’t and found easily space during Summer, but worth booking if you are a larger group and want to sit inside or out specifically on a busy weekend during the warmer seasons
