If you are looking for a place to have pizza with the kids in "quiet" Geneva, this is it. The restaurant is located in what use to be an industrial building. Yes, there is a waiting line; yes there is a lot of noise, but the pizzas are excellent, the staff is great with kids (they even have desert made of nutella pizza pockets), and it doesn't seem to bother anyone to have the "monsters" run around, play "baby-foot" and be noisy as they deal with the sugar rush consequent to the Nutella pizza desert, while you are enjoying a peaceful esspresso. Defintely a rearety in Geneva !

The price is very honest. When you are done, you pay as you check-out at the counter and you are back in the car (or tram/bus) promissing the kids that you will come back. "Je tire mon chapeau" to the managers !

we have pizza at Luigia with the family (including young kids) and the pizza's are delicious, and atmosphere casual and lively. there is table-football for the children, which they love. downside of the place is "pushy" turnover of tables, and very expensive desserts and side-dishes. but again, pizza's are unbeatable.

I went to Luigia on a Friday night with colleagues and found the place a bit too crowdy and noisy; however once we got our table I was really impressed with the food. The octopus and potatoes salad was fresh and tasty but the real revelation was the pizza Luigia: 5 parcel of pizza dough filled with cheese and ham (I actually asked for bresaola intead of cooked ham) covered with slice of black truffles. Buonissima!

The concept is to have an Italian restaurant experience. The issue is that you can't reserve your table, then a long long wait before your get a chance to have a table. Then you can order your Pizza which is delivered just few minutes after. Just had time to chat with my partner a little before to have the food on the table. Nevermind the pizza is delicious. Then you finish by having a quick coffee and say good bye, because other people are waiting for your table. In top of that you have a very noisy atmosphere. All that for a price which is over the standard in Geneva.

The pizzas at Luigias are great - the dough is the right soft consistency, and (becoming a rarity these days) not outrageously salty. There seems to be a microbrewery, although I drank wine. It is very popular so a) very noisy, not a good place for romance or business, and b) no reservations so if you choose to show up at peak times be prepared to queue for a long time. The service was prompt and friendly. The cheapest pizzas are slightly expensive, and you are feeling extravagant there are exotic pizzas for 3x the price of a normal one. Good place to take children and teenagers if you can afford it and plan feel or have patience.
