The food is very average, nothing special, but is highly overpriced (even for Geneva). Worst part of this restaurant is the staff: they are just rude, don't say hi or thank you, don't even reply when you say goodbye. There are plenty of Italian restaurants in Geneva, you can find a better place than this.

Geneva can be cold. The traditional middle class families that used to be the mainstay of the town were edged out by the ultra-rich oligarchs and oil barons or the drug dealers from the Magreb. The main dining locations are choices from 3 star Michelin restaurants that cost a fortune to unhygienic kabob parlors, but nestled along a small square... More

Go there with your friends for italian specialities (i.e. Pizza, pasta, antipasti)...not a very rich menu, other than pasta&pizza. Good value for money. As for yhe vast majority of restaurants in Geneva, parking your car can be painful.

Excellent choice for pasta while in Geneva.Pizzas are also excellent but can be too big for some.The service is hit and miss.Portions are enormous. You can't share but they pack the leftovers for takeaway.The decor is very old. If you are travelling this is one of the few places open nearly everyday.

You better be hungry. The food is really excellent, simple but zoo good. Open 7/7 and always a good place for lunch (may need to tae a nap) or dinner. Fresh, tasty, excellent. Not first time, not last time!

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
