Traditional Italian restaurant which serves good Neapolitan-style pizza. Good selection of pizza. Service was ok. There are a few tables outside in the front.

Quaint Italian restaurant, thin large wood fire pizzas and wine by the carafe. If you like soccer they have a TV for sport.

Well located in Rue de Lausanne, close to the central station (Gare de Cornavin), decent Neapolitan style, oven baked pizza (not usual in Geneva). Salads are very good as well as service. Worth a try if in need of Italian food!
