Local friends selected the restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and reminded me of a restaurant in the country side in Italy. The servers try a little too hard to upsell, but the service is friendly and swift. We had a variety of pastas and they were great, did not try the pizzas but they looked good also.

I'm a italian living in Geneva and I can say that even at home I don't enjoy food as much as in this restaurant. By far the best italian food I had since my mom stop cooking for me. Everything is delicious, from the antipasti to the dolce for a very affordable price.

First of all:i am Italian. I live in Geneva since 22 years, that means I've probably tried all of them and only few can claim to be real Italian restaurants. First:pasta is home made. Then, pizzas are excellent, mozzarella di bufala is fresh and tasty. It's an excellent restaurant that i would notice also if it would be in Italy.

I came here with my daughter and sister, it was a little tough to find but well worth it. The waiter was great, he worked with my broken French, and was very funny about it (he was Italian not Swiss). The food was very good and they were very accommodating to my daughter. I had the spaghetti Carbonara, my daughter... More

Made the mistake of ordering a dish to go. In my defence, I did ASK before ordering if it would be possible. Shown to the menu on display outside the restaurant with a dismissive wave of a hand, I chose a lasagna. No asking me if I'd like to sit down, if I'd like to order a drink while I... More

Do NOT bring children here. Food is good but the manager and wife(?) are rude and unfriendly. I was a frequent guest until this week when I arrived 1 day at 1:50 pm and he rudely refused to serve me lunch. Let that go but went again with my 16 month old twins SEATED OUTDOORS and during the dinner he... More
