“i have a favourite pasta dish called linguine alle vongole”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

i ordered this dish at les tilleuls and in my book it passed with flying colours. my wife and friend ordered seafood and again they were excellent. the pizzas also looked terrific. some twenty years ago i lived in rome for 10 months indulging in a fair amount of eating out and had developed an appreciation of good italian cooking. les tilleuls had exceeded my expectations. their portions are also generous so be sure you are hungry when you get there.

“Average food quality - nice terrace in summer”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

A good spot in Geneva if you wish to relax in a nice shaded terrace away from the traffic roads works and traffic jams. However, do not expect high quality food (especially during lunch time) neither wonderful service. Waiters are friendly without being too professional. During the last lunch we had there, a waiter inadvertently broken a glass and a piece of glass jumped into the eye of one of my colleague...no big trouble, but still we were expecting at least a coffee offfered at the end of the meal :-(

“Nice place with great sea food pasta”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

We often go to this restaurant and absolutely love it. The service is quick and personal, the owner is attentive, food is great with unique recepies for many pasta, place is cozy and spaceous. You need to reserve on week end dates since it is quite popular.

“Good food, cozy atmosphere, pleasant service”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

Hidden in a quiet corner just behind St Jean is this great restaurant. Italian cuisine, great variety of dishes. Salads a must, wonderful pizza's, pasta etc. Don't forget desert. Many other famous dishes from Italy! Call to reserve; the place gets crowded although we found a table for 4 on a Thursday evening without any problems. During Summer the street in front turns into terrace. A must when coming to Geneva!
