Excellent rissotos (we had the seafood and the mushroom ones). Huge portions and very tasty! Very busy, so definitely book! Very enjoyable meal although fairly pricey. Would avoid a starter unless you a very hungry!

It is really hard to fault this place, and anybody who has read my other reviews knows I don't lavish praise liberally. What can I say? Huge (Americanesque) portions of food of very high quality. Convivial modern atmosphere, very popular amongst locals. Friendly helpful service. What more can you want? Go there! :-)

We'd been to many Italian restaurants in Geneva, this is the best one so far ! The waiter was polite and professional. The foods were excellent in taste with generous quantity. The wines were also good. The only thing we can complain is the parking lots. It's just quite difficult to find one in this area. We will go again... More

I shared a wonderful dinner here with friends last week. The dishes with seasonal mushrooms were particularly good. The atmosphere was also refreshing. It is rare to find such a relaxed family environment with such good food.

We had a great time at Les Tilleuls. The restaurant was crowded but even so the service was friendly and efficient. The Salads were fantastic and so was the pasta, fresh and tasty. we had a great time and we will defiantly come back again.

I had a take away pizza from Les Tilleuls, it was crispy and tasty. Perfect Italian pizza! But, a note for tourists, you cannot have lunch at Les Tilleuls after 2pm, as they close for the afternoon

Really enjoyed this dining experience. Came here with 10 friends for a birthday dinner. We were so well looked after, the staff and very attentive and friendly despite the huge terrace they have to look after. Liked the spacious setting. Food was good, big portions, and nice twists on Italian classics. The foccacia and limoncellos were on the house, which... More

Ok, it is not cheap, but the food is top quality and the portions are huge. The place is large and was pretty crowded on the day we had dinner there but service was fast and it was decently quiet.

My wife and I went to this restaurant already three times and every time it was good. Pizzas are great and salads as main course too. You really have a wide range of both so that you will not get bored after going there several times. We did not try starters and desserts yet but I guess they are good... More
