I am a frequent customer and I must say I never had any motive for complain, quite the contrary. Quality food, attentive service and a nice terrasse in the summer without noise from the traffic. one other good thing I like is that "plat du jour" varies a lot

The food is delicios, both pasta and pizza. The portions are huge! The service is good and it is perfect to have lunch or dinner there. Perfect for meals with friends and also for romantic dinners. Good prices for Geneva.

This is your ordinary local pizzeria with a twist: elegant decor, elegant waiters and really delicious pasta and pizzas, as well as a broad offering of other interesting dishes on the menu. It has a large outdoor terrace which is really nice - even though it is a very urban terrace (not much greenery around) but for this neighbourhood it's... More

I had 2 lunches there with with my colleagues and didn't find it as good as people say. I am Italian and for me this is not real Italian food! Once I had a pizza, just ok. The second time I had the daily special: fish with just 2 carrots, 2 little onions, fennel and quinoa. Expensive for the food... More

Hello, Thank you very much for giving your opinion on Tripadvisor. Indeed, our restaurant does not pretend to be an Italian restaurant. Our kitchen is 50% French and 50% Italian. We proudly say for 10 years, we love Italian food and maybe even more French cuisine. Many of our dishes are inspired by Paris and Lyon restaurants. We often go... More

Went there with a friend and had some lovely home made tagliatelle with shrimp a small lobster. It was delicious and more pretty generously sized. Enjoyed it on the quiet pedestrian only terrace. We were also offered a complimentary glass of limoncello which is so nice after a large meal. Only negative point to mention is the speed of the... More

I have visited the restaurant Les Tilleuls in St Jean twice and on each occasion it has been absolutely awful. The first time, two years ago, my sister and I took my parents there for a birthday meal and we had to wait over 90 minutes to get our food after ordering. This required us having to ask the waiter... More
