Great Italian rest

To enjoy a good Italian food for a good price. Try the spaghetti a la vongole. Great place to go with children. The Pizzas are delicious!

We were six and ordered pizzas and pastas. We all got very satisfied with our plates - they were tasty and had the right quantity of food. The waiters treated us really nicely and for the quality of the food, the restaurant isn't that expensive, comparing to others in the area. Loved it. (P.s: Special thanks to the Portuguese waiter...

I ordered one penne alla siciliana and it was just amazing, the serving size is giant, my boyfriend ordered a spaghetti carbonara and it was also really good! The waiter was very sympathetic and the food was really fast :) love it !

Most of the times I've been here I ordered pizza which were really fresh hand made. My favorite the one with tuna, black olives and onion. I can say that the price is affordable , considering that Geneva is an expensive city.

An institution in Geneva, this Italian restaurant is a busy place for lunch and diner. The Pizza are to remember and the pasta as well. The deco and service are typical Italian and the small terrace in summer is pleasant. All in all a sure bet.

The food was excellent, but the beginning wasn't. The place was very crowded and our reception was confusing. We had to wait standing for at least 15 minutes. One of the waitresses was very rude asking me to give her way and our waiter was smelling cigarette very bad. After we were seated everything was good. The food was quickly... More

Really a great Italian restaurant. The food that we had was excellent and the personnel was very welcoming. You cannot book a table in advance at this restaurant so we just went there on a Thursday evening and the waiter took immediately care of us and found us a nice table. He was able to give us good recommendations regarding... More

The best pizza in Geneva (and probably the whole of Swiss Romande), with excellent pasta and risotto too. The staff work hard and seem to enjoy being there to help. You can't reserve a table - just turn up and wait. You can get a drink whilst in the queue, all adding to the very informal and busy atmosphere. A... More
