This restaurant was around the corner from our hotel and we decided to give it a go on our arrival day. It was busy, busy with lunch time customer from neighboring offices. Prices were again Geneva prices but when you see the plates, the servings are massive 9specially the pasta dishes), I'm not a big eater and a huge serving... More

After searching for a parking spot, we wound up at L´incontro, a place well known to our son & wife who live in nearby Coppet. We, including our four year old grandson, were well served in spite of the busy noon day crowd. The waiters were swift & cheerful & our food and wine were perfect for the occaision. Give... More

Pizzas are very good (and extra larges), pastas are also delicious (try the pasta siciliennes). Not cheap but worth it. Excellent for families. We love to go there on Sunday night, for a last treat before the new week.

I found this pizzeria 12 years ago. I just keep on coming back for their great pizza. Have tried quite a few other ones in the area but nothing compares to L'incontro. My kids live overseas, whenever they come back home they always want to go here.

Unpretentious restaurant that is nearly always full and serves nice food at a good price for Geneva. Can't say fairer than that!

We went to the restaurant after reading its TripAdvisor recommendations. We were there on a Thursday evening, from about 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. At that time, the place was not full but still had a lot of people in. Upon entering, the waiter showed us to a table at the center of the room but asked whether we'd wan... More

Love having my Pizza here.For those wanting a quiet romantic meal and thin crust Pizza this is NOT the place. Those wanting a thick, delicious ,medium wood fire cooked pizza in a bustling atmosphere this IS your place.Pasta are also excellent. Carlo the owner is either doing the pizzas or roaming around the room telling you one of his famous... More

This restaurant is very pleasant in summer with the large terrace on the square. The staff is friendly and efficient even if service can be long sometimes depending what you order. The local favourites are penne Siciliana served twice and large portions, the other are the pizza which are very good and authentic Italian.

While the penne a la Siciliana of l'incontro are indeed very good, they are not good enough for over an hour wait. We also had to remind the crew twice of the fact that they had forgotten us (around us customers came, got served the same dishes we had ordered - the specialty of the place and a salad -... More
