Good overall Italian restaurant. Nothing really special. However if take the PENNE SICILIANA you are in for a treat. Nothing is really extraordinary but nothing is bad. Out of the huge choice of Italian restaurants in Geneva this is very decent. Pricing is correct and you can get away with a 30-40CHF meal no problem. Portions are also pretty generous.... More

One of the best tasting penne a la siciliana in Geneva. The home made red chillies in olive oil that they provide is just amazing. But the most impressive thing is that you don't get just one plate but they bring you a second serving once you finished your first plate. London should take note, no pizzeria in London even...

This was one of my regular haunts but haven't been back for a while. I heard that it wasn't as good as it used to be, but there's nothing like checking it out yourself. I was looking forward to a great crispy pizza but was disappointed by the quality. It was soggy and not terribly tasty (apart from a little... More

I ordered minestrone and fried calamari. Minestrone tasted like canned soup and very salted, so I left more than half. The vegetable in it tasted like frozen food. I still had to pay CHF16. The fried calamari dish was also very disappointing. Friend said the pasta was good, so majority of customers ordered pasta. Probably not so many would order... More

We were 6 and tried to have something light to eat after a concert. Two couples and one friend alone. After drinks both couples asked each one for a pizza to share. We were not so hungry but wanting to grab a bite and a few beers. Restaurant almost empty. The waiter (not his fault) comes back saying the owner... More

I don't the restaurant as I was lunching on the terrasse (a bit noisy due to the avenue) but I ate Tagliatelle with Bolets (mushrooms) and I have to say that it was one of the best pasta I ever eat. I will try it again but inside and taste/test other specialities.

Eat there today with family and friends. Both Pizzas and carpaccio good , Spagetti Vongoli very good. I had Frito Misto and it was soggy , lukewarm and not crippy at all. Too bad wont try it again. Service OK but not great. My first time here.

Although they pizza might be a little bit more expensive than somewhere else, they're worth their prices. They're big and taste good. The staff is always great, they often offer the limoncello at the end. It's pretty well located. Go for it.

I do not understand how this place can be packed at lunchtime. The food is no where near good Italian food. Pizzas are not good, with low quality cheese and too doughy. And it's very expensive, probably due to its prime location.
