“Good pizza on a budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2010

Book in advance, pizza is good and to be in Geneva is good value for money. Don't expect a posh restaurant, but expect a fairly priced quick and good lunch or dinner. I have been here many times and I have never been disappointed. Service is quick and efficient. I don't understand the negative comments, maybe they are due to the fact that they were expecting a trendy or fashionable place....

“The best focaccia in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2010

Try the focaccias! Unforgettable. We keep coming back, and can't get enough. Good atmosphere, nice decor. Waiters not extremely in-your-face, but some people (like us) like it that way. Not really sure what some of the other reviews are going on about. It's one of our favourite places in Geneva.

“Ottima pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2009

I am not sure about pasta (I rarely eat pasta at the restaurant if not in Italy), but the pizza is good.
The pizzaiolo Michele is from Naples and delivers good quality stuff.
Fairly cheap.

Despite the friendly stuff, nothing special in this Italian. The atmosphere is cold and a la canteen. Pizza is ordinary, pasta is no special.

“Stay Away from Il Carosello!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2009

We got lost trying to find a place our hotel had recommended and went into Il Carosello as we were getting tired and hungry on our last night in Geneva. What a mistake! Although the food was acceptable, the service was awful and there were flies dive- bombing our heads throughout the meal. We had to continually flag down our waiter to order, get more drinks, get the bill. Very disappointing.
