“Super pizza, great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

One of the best pizzas I have eaten, anywhere. Really crowded when we were there, but still quick, efficient and polite. Super expensive, but it is Geneva!

“Don't believe the hype”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Decidedly NOT the best pizza in town. Stingy with the ingredients and burnt, only half the pizza was edible and nothing special when it comes to taste. On the positive side the place is cosy and the service is fast but we will not go again.

“Good Italian Food”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Da Paolo is one of the restaurants that I visit several times during my visit to Geneva. The food is very good and light. The portions are quite big. They have many items on the menu to choose from. The prices are average for Geneva. The service is also very good. The place is almost always full and often you have to wait for a table. They don't accept reservations in advance. They have outside seating which is very advisable during the summer because it's too hot inside.

“Great atmosphere, excellent pizza, professional & fast service”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Da Paolo is a very popular place and it’s often a queue of people waiting for a table (it seems not possible to book in advance), the staffs are amazing at organising and taking care of the guests. You quickly proceed to the bar where you can have a drink and some olives while you wait. And before you know it they have freed up a table for you.

Generous portion sizes and a wide variety of dishes. Personal favourite is: Misto di mare. And the pizzas are great.

It’s busy and crowded, but very cosy and great atmosphere.
Big wood fired pizza oven. Where the kids can get a piece of dough and make their own pizza if they like. Possibilities to sit outside in the summer. Open quite late in the evening.

Prices: This is Geneva so it’s the normal Geneva prices in a good restaurant. (Meaning quite expensive!) Good value for the quality delivered.
