We arrived just after 6pm and were one of only 2 tables of diners. Despite the restaurant being quiet it took a long time to be served and for meals to arrive and just as long to get the bill when we asked for it. The food was good and tasty and freshly prepared but portions were really too large-... More

You have to try the seafood risotto here. It's the most tasty risotto I ever had (ps I am only 29 though). Price not too costly but absolutely worthwhile for the food. A must taste.

Bad food and bad service, all together. Only the bad quality of the food compares to the incredibly bad waiter. The salad was pretty bad and the fish dish was small, cold and unsavory.

I guess that all food is very expensive in Geneva, so this was no exception. The décor was homey and rustic, but clean. I had a dinner sized salad that was tasty but expensive for what it was. My husband had a pizza that was OK but not cheap either. The gelato that I had tasted stale and gummy.

it is a very busy restaurant in the center of the town. Very friendly staff. I loved the pizzas baked in wooden fire. Pastas are also very delicious and serve in big portions.

I've been here a few times, and every time the service has been great and the food exceptional. Their pizzas are so filling yet so delicious, and the pizza cooked to perfection. The service is attentive but not overbearing, and the wait staff make an excellent impression every time. One of my favourite places in Geneva! Highly recommend!

My son loves pizza and has never been to Italy. Although he has had great New York pizza in Jersey , he said this was the best pizza ever. The gelato was good as well. Service was friendly, with a family feel

Nice, inexpensive Italian restaurant where the chef goes a little bit mad with the chilli but otherwise the food was excellent. It is close the Cornavin train station and within easy reach of several of the Manotel hotels. You can eat inside and out. If I lived in Geneva, this restaurant would be one of my regular haunts.

I liked this place as soon as we walked in. We were a bit early for dinner service and all the staff were eating. They let us in anyway. There's something very reassuring about seeing all the staff eat the food that is cooked in the resturant. We had a ravioli soup (that was absolutely delicious) steak, two types of... More
