Normally I just love love love this place, look forward to eating here every time I am in Cary, and I live 45 min away in Clayton. May have to rethink that now. We were there last night after business in Cary, ordered a cup of soup, 2 drinks, 1 pepperoni pizza, a house salad and an appetizer, NOTHING complicated. Got the drinks, no offer of water, got the appetizer, my soup our first round of drinks after 45 minutes of waiting time... pizza came out, but not the one we ordered, never got a salad, ordered a 2nd round of drinks, never got them... and an offer of a corrected pizza, by now we'rean hour plus down range and hungry. They weren't even busy at 7pm on a Monday evening. Ugh, sooo disappointed
Hello, Lugano Ristorante management and staff! I had dinner at your restaurant this evening, and it was wonderful. I particularly enjoyed the cappelini di mare. Thank you for your excellent service. I have a bit of an issue: I misplaced my driver's license inside the restaurant. The first name on the license is Hamza. If you find it, please message me here. You can further reach me at 415.559.1683 Happy New Year's.
Lugano Rista Rip Off... I asked for a side of parmesan and thats all they could spare and the story gets worse. They have a 3, a fricken THREE oz portion of spaghetti that comes with the chicken parm! Are yu kidding me!!! My 2 year old ate the whole portion of noodles cause it wasnt enough to fill a HALF a paper plate length, height or width wise. It was rediculous and was 10 minutes late on the order when 2 people I talked too (who were a$$hats that couldnt understand why I was upset when I called back later) Didnt comp more noodles and passed me off to some manager who says "We arent changing our ways when it works" Literally one couple was in there. More staff then customers but seems its working huh! Not enough noodles for a 2 year old. And no shes a girl and eats dantily, 3 ounces on a 17$ dish is a fricken joke! Wait till their social media gets a load of me!!

Carry out or dine in? 🍽 With reopening, restaurants are working hard to adapt their plans for dine in customers and carry out service. We checked in on a few of Cary’s popular locally owned eateries to see how things are going- hear from the owners of Lugano Ristorante and Academy Street Bistro, and YURI Japanese Restaurant, Cary, NC here: https://bit.ly/2Yc5091
