Basic Italian cooking with character!

I've been here three times now, the last time on a stopover to visit some friends. It's lively, busy and warm - perfect for a January evening. The food is good overall but don't expect haute cuisine. The value is not to bad for central Geneva - and the location is ideal. Recommended.

This was perhaps my tenth visit to La Trattoria. We went only for dessert - the tiramisu - which my wife loves. Tonino, the owner, sat with us while we enjoyed our dish and chatted with our 18-year old grandson. This restaurant can get crowded by I've rarely had to wait more than 10 minutes. They seem to be able... More

We've actually seen the owner of the place getting into a fight with a customer over a nuisance and literally kicking him out. The food was not anything special and kind of expensive for what you get. Would not recommend.

We reserved in advance tables for about 30 people at early evening, a time which isn't too busy as the guy told us on the phone. Unfortunately only half of our group made it to the restaurant. I understand some degree of frustration in this case but the guy simply overreacted. The food, mainly pizzas and salads were ok. We... More

Location is fantastic, it is pleasantly crowded and staff are very friendly, but they take a year to take your order and take a century to bring a mediocre food for you, you can have way better food in any average American restaurant, so not think it is an experience. But if you are staying in Geneva for a long... More

Had a long layover and decided to visit the centre of Geneva, which they have made it pretty comfortable. After a long walk in the city I felt hungry for Italian, chose it as it was closest to the train station. Pizza was excellent, as it should be in an Italian trattoria. Recommended.

This is a piece ofI Italy in the heart of French Switzerland. Much of the menu is based around the wood fired pizza oven, and there seems to be only one size of pizza base - large. Even bruschetta starters are that size. The menu does not indicate sharing dishes, so be warned. Go very hungry before you enter because... More

We called to make a reservation for a big group. The man who answered the phone refused to accept us, because they said we booked previously and did not come. This is very confusing because this has never happened. Could he have been confused between our company, and another?

You may be squeezed a bit since the place is very popular and the tables are nearly on top of each other. But, once seated, you really enjoy generous portions of fresh, authentic food
