We went on Saturday evening about 7 pm. It was quite a hike finding this place. And it was... closed. Quite a disappointment

Le Radar de Poche is a non pretentious gem hidden in the old town of Geneva. It only serves lunch - simple food. From memory, they only have two or three dishes of pasta along with a choice of paninis. We've always gone for the haristo, and have never been disappointed. Consistently delicious. A dish of pasta costs 10 francs,... More

It's simple food: pasta and paninis, but it's good and much cheaper than all other places in the old town. Mostly full with locals at lunch time. It's small, so go early or be prepared to queue. They've got a small terrace, and they're very friendly. Totally recommend this place for a quick, cheap (compared to others), and good lunch!

This is a nice quaint little bar. Food was just average, mostly penne on the menu. It was a friendly place to eat with mostly locals there when we were.

We were not able to taste the food as they do not serve in the evening... They let us know that only after ordering the drinks. We have however been charged for the beers... And what a shock! 10.50 for a draft beer (food is the same price :S).

We came for a week end in Geneva and looked for places to eat that we're reasonably priced in Geneva. This was one of the best referenced. We had dinner there today and it was really good. As stated in other posts, the penne (€10) are really well prepared. Really good value for money. The gentleman that served us was... More

Okay, so not the most amazing pasta you'll ever eat, but seriously not bad and at CHF11 for lunch, very pleasant staff (they are busy, but always friendly) and the cute cucina feel, it's a regular.

It's really small and cozy italian restaurants with big portion of real italian penne. It can be with sauce and goat cheese, olives, tomatoes and etc. The cost is about 10-12 fr per dish. It's no non-stop restaurant, so you have to come to eat before 2 pm and after 7 p.m for dinner

Been there twice, and enjoyed it both times. They serve simple pastas for lunch, and then more adventurous pastas for dinner. For dinner, I had a penne with duck and a melted foie gras sauce which was extremely rich. Friendly service, they speak English well.

This little gem tucked away in "Old Town" Geneva (close to the Cathedral) is superb. The meal is fantastic and the price is cheap for Geneva standards. The Fois Gras meals are to die for and then comes desert. The chef makes a fantastic meal from the tiniest kitchen in Geneva and well worth a night out talking with friends.... More
