Da Paolo is an authentic italian restaurant located near the jet d'eau that serves food non stop 7 days a week and that is always busy. (rare for geneva) prices are ok and service is good. not a fact place and great for kids and friends or for a late hangover lunch on a sunday afternoon. In summer they have... More

Visited this restaurant tonight. Me and my partner both had a pizza. Proper oven cooked pizzas which were delicious. Really generous with the toppings too which is always nice to see! It was very busy, even for a Sunday night, nonetheless the service was fantastic, did not have to wait long for our food and the waiters were all efficient... More

Wanted to have an Italian lunch with my boy... already upon entering you feel transformed. Busy, crowded, waiters buzzing around.. but all in a nice Italian way, with the looks and atmosphere of a ristorante di Napoli. First advantage - they speak French, English but most of all Italian ... second one - if too crowded - you are treated... More

Not as good as it used to be . We went for late lunch . Penne Arabiata was not tasty at all . Service is good but the food in general had decreased in taste & quality.

Their food is always very good, but you may have to wait to sit at times. They used to not accept reservations for lunch but I think they do now.

It is often challenging to find delicious authentic Italian food in Europe (outside of Italy), but this restaurant hits the spot! Large menu, friendly service, busy but fun atmosphere, and the most delicious home-made hot sauce you can find. The prices are on par with typical Swiss mid-range restaurants, but the food is better than several other "fine dining" restaurants... More

Food is OK, not bad but nothing exceptional. The place it's a bit too noisy but the staff is friendly. Good pro: they work late and you can have food when the rest of the places are closed. The couple next to us started eating at 11pm!

We were in Geneva, Switzerland for 1 night before heading home. We were looking for a nice local Italian restaurant for dinner and went to my good old standby, Trip Advisor. TA had numerous restaurants to pick from but, being Italian descent, I needed to be sure for the quality. Price matters but, the quality gets my attention more. We... More
