Very Italian restaurant! It is an Italian family who own and run the restaurant. The pizza marker is professional and thus the pizza is amazing. All the pasta are also very good! Very nice atmosphere!

Went last night for pizza. Very good, wine very nice too. The price was also very reasonable good atmosphere, unpretentious and casual. Has parking at the back which is a plus as on Rue de Geneva and not much parking on road. Throughly enjoyed the evening.

The pizzas are delicious, the ingredients used are from the highest quality, the arlecchino is my favorite. If you are a pasta lover, you need to try their gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, it is to die for.

This lovely family-owned restaurant is also an Italian grocery store, so the ingredients are of premium-quality, you won't be fooled. You may even see the grandmother manufacturing the pasta right behind the counter. All their food is great, from the pizzas made by the pizzaiolo-dad to the pastas... the lasagne being probably their most jaw-dropping. Highly recommended.

I like this restaurant because it's a small family businesses and the owners are so nice. Every time we go there they remember perfectly our preferences for food and they are very friendly. I do not eat pizza but all my friends that choose this dish say it's delicious. I love the pasta there (spaghetti sauce maison my favorite )... More

If you are going to eat there rather than take-out, I would recommend going during the summer when the terrace is open. The inside of the restaurant is a bit of a dive, but if you like that sort of thing (I do) it's quaint and fun to watch the excitement of the kitchen. The pies are very good, but... More

This little long-time restaurant in Gaillard is great. A terrific array of Pizza's and various other pasta dishes are available. Probably the finest 'Spag Bol' I've ever eaten. Salads are fresh, plentiful and good….Then to the best part…the owners! Terrific, they shout and talk loud and make you feel very welcome. The young waitress, (sadly is leaving this month for...

While this place indeed offers Italian products, it can hardly be called a restaurant due to the narrowness of the place (tables are almost on top of one another) the very poor hygiene (the paper tablecloth was already quite stained when we arrived) and the absolutely disastrous service: we had to wait 5 minutes to be welcomed, they gave us...

We enjoyed two meals here over the weekend. The pizzas were excellent and arrived very quickly and were so tasty - I think the best that I've ever had. My partner wanted to have the lasagne the second time but unfortunately they had run out - he was quite happy with another pizza! Other people were having beautiful plates of... More
