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

On each and every trip (3x Year) I visit this excellent restaurant. It is so nice and cosy and the service is faultless. All the staff are friendly and eager to meet your requirements. I normally have the fish speciality from Lake Geneva (filet de perche). I really rate this restaurant, please try it next time you visit Geneva.

Only stopped here for lunch but it turned in to more than that. It's not really a lunch sort of place, the meal portions are quite big and there are not any "snack" type meals on the menu. The pizzas are nice, and the pasta wasn't bad too. The food in general in this place is pretty good. The downside... More

I have been in Da Paolo several times and without doubt, eating there is a pleasure! It's a restaurant with a good quality, nice tastes, pleasant atmosphere and good mood (not only food) ;-) ! Try the schnitzel with fried potatoes or a pizza (don't forget the italian tradition) You can choose from a big variety of salads and appetizers... More

Always surprise by the simplicity of the treats and the comfortable experience of eating under the sun or in a cozy uplifting space. I recommend the red wine risotto, the milanese with tagliatelle, the pizza capriciosa among many others.

The pizza was great, ingredients fresh and tasty, prepared fast. Service was pleasant too. But if you want to eat anything but the most basic stuff, it gets a little pricey. Still probably one of the best in Geneva taste-wise, albeit not the best quality to price ratio.

Good food and rich portions in Eaux Vives. Fast service and crowdy atmosphere. Not a must, but a good place to go. One of my favs in Geneva.
