Reading people's reviews, I mean the very enthusiastic ones, make me ask myself a question : what about good Italian or French or any other ethnic food do they know? I am not an expert, however, I think I have throughout the years, developed a quite critical mouth palate to give an honest opinion. How can someone pretend that the... More

One the good restaurants which will serve you an excellent Italian food any time during the day. When I was younger, we used to get together there after our ski week end.

Poor Paolo. The only good thing about this pizzeria is the name of the late owner who passed away a few years ago, the decoration and the location. But for the food it has lost its prestigious reputation. Spaghetti alle Vongole and spaghetti carbonara served in less than 5 minutes ! I swear. The pasta was over cooked and the... More

This restaurant, close to Lac Leman in Geneva, as the address suggests, is something of a classic pizzeria. You can find good wine, good service, and lots of menu choices beyond just pizzas. In good weather, it has an outside seating area although, to be honest, the immediate surroundings are not overly attractive, so you may be better sitting inside.... More

Best pasta and pizza in a city full of italian restaurant. Family trattoria, very cosy, with amazing food. I recommend penne a la siciliana, panacotta, and of course all the pizzas.

Went there for the second time with friends. Both time the food was above expectations. I have had pizza both times, while friends have had bolognese (said it was best they'd ever had), salads, pizza and appetizer. All have greatly enjoyed their food selections. The prices may be slightly more expensive than other restaurants, but worth the difference to me.... More

Probably the best pizzas in Geneva. A sure shot in the eaux vives area. A bit dusty & old school decoration. Recommended !
