“Typical italian restaurant in Geneva”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

The Piatta D'Oro is one of the most famous italian restaurant in Geneva. This restaurant is located in Meyrin, so close to the airport, but only 15 min by taxi from city center.
The food is very good and the athmosphere is typical. Always crowded and noisy but it's part of the ambiance.
The pizzas are very good, and you need to try the famous "gratin de pâtes" with curry and shrimps.
During the summer, there is very nice terrasse. You can see and hear planes taking off every 10 min but it's not a problem

“good pizzas, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

Grilled fish was stinking from a probably not well cleaned grill. Service is often minimalist, lazy with a "touch of arrogance"... It used to be a very good place some years ago with a very nice service. What is left are good pizzas, not enough in my opinion to tempt me to come back for some time...

“Decent pizza and pasta”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

Consider it as an "italian" fast food. Pizza and pasta are OK, nothing to remind of though. And it can be very noisy at lunch.

“Very nice atmosphere - but not at cheap price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

They have a vary menu, usually everything is delicious. Wines can be expensive. Very good lasagne and big pizzas. Avoid vitello tonnato, not that good (too dry). The owner is Italian and always smiling. Service is good but can be veeery slow at peak hours (usually around midday). Only thing we didn't like are the usual high prices (typical of Geneva).
