I went to this restaurant because it was supposed to be one of the best restaurant of Geneva. I was really disappointed! Never again. My pizza was indeed tasty but I had to wait so long. Then, they forgot my dessert even though I had called at least 3 waiters. Moreover, one of the waiters had his eyes sticked to... More

We went here for lunch with the idea of trying out a new spot in Geneva. Overall, very positive experience. They offer 3 lunch dishes (one of which is pizza and salad) for very reasonable prices. The service was fast and very polite - really a plus. And the food was good. The pizza is not exactly my style (e.g.... More

There are many restaurants (in Geneva) with this type of menu, but there are small details which puts Les Tilleuls higher on the list: - You will feel really welcome, - Various dishes and prices, especially at noon - Well compensated for the price you pay, - Among the pizza and pasta dishes, there are great meat dishes (excellent tartare...

Visited with a group of mates and everyone's food was delicious! We had a combination of pizza and pastas and I tried most of them and they were all great. My pasta was slightly to rich (the salmon one) but that's my personal taste - it was still very good. The ice-cream was a let down but I would still... More

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
