It's an authentic pizzeria with great choices of Italian food. The place is very comfortable and clean to sit and enjoy your food. The owners were too humble in serving us.

It doesn't appear to be possible to eat out cheaply in Geneva but this lovely little Italian offers pretty good value for money when compared with other restaurants in the area. Situated just a couple of streets back from the lake, it's a fairly typical...More

Great food, reasonable price. They catered for our party of 18 promptly and courteously - we had of course booked. Pizzas are great and others in the party enjoyed their pasta meals too. The owners are delightful and have a great sense of humour. I...More

I stopped in for the menu of the day at lunch time but around 1:30pm so past the rush. I stood alone for a long time until a very unfriendly old man threw a menu on a dirty table and told me to sit there,...More

We enjoyed a delicious pizza maison (red sauce and eggplant) and an interesting pizza with assorted seafood (clams, mussels, calamari). Both were crisp from the wood oven. With a simple salad and a purported half liter of Montepulciano, CHF68 was about right for Geneva, and...More

Our 4 Star hotel recommended this restaurant, and we liked it so much we went there both nights we were in Geneva. The first night we both ordered lasagna and thought it was among the best we've eaten. The second night we had tortellini stuffed...More
