La Pignata is the typical restaurant that you pass by many years without noticing it. You know there is a italian place but for whatever reason you never tried, until you are really hungry, it is a Sunday and the restaurant is open and you are next to it.

The quality of the food was really outstanding. Geneva is known to have a lot of italian restaurants and pizza places but this one is well above the other. Pizza was amazing, super high quality and very tasty while my wife had the lemon veal with home made garlic pastas that were oustanding.

The staff was amazingly professional and friendly! Most waiters in Geneva should take a look at this restaurant and learn from them.

It was a real discovery and we are looking forward to coming back!

Before we discovered La Pignata we loved Espresso club and Luigia having great Pizza in a feel good atmosphere. Since we went to La Pignata first time, we dont want to miss the Pizza and the friendly and authentic staff anymore. Having an italian girlfriend, I spend a lot of time in Italy and of course try the local Pizzaria but I have never had a better one than in Pignata. Even in Italy you hardly find a better one than here. The pizzamaster Luigi is a true genius and it is a pleasure watching him while he is doing fantastic creations. La Pignata is a must visit in Geneva if you love authentic and great italian Pizza.

My wife and I had pizzas here recently whilst on holiday.
Absolutely excellent food and at a real world price.

On our last night in Geneva, went to La Pignata based on the good reviews. The restaurant was informal and the staff were friendly. As we were a party of eight, we booked in advance. We ordered a selection of pizzas to share between two and the staff were happy to accomodate our request. We noticed that it was also a popular for take away pizzas based on the business it was doing. The pizzas we choose were delicious and we enjoyed the occasion.

One of the best pizzas that we've tasted from a pizzeria in a long time! Homemade, and also made in front of you! I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant to try yourselves.
