A very friendly ( you will get to know la mama de la casa ) place to have a pleasent dinner with a delicious food. All ingredients are fresh and cooked in a typical italian way. Don't miss this restaurant if you visit Geneva.

I was there with my boyfriend and we really enjoyed it. The fact that all the people who work there seem to be from Italy and especially la grande mama of the restaurant (who has a heart for everyone) make the ambience so real.

It's pretty full and also a bit loud but you shouldn't mind because this is exactly how the resraurants in Italy are. I recommend to reserve places!

The food is very delicious, we tried the Caprese and some Pizzas. It's no problem if you want to split a meal they even bring you extra plates (very untypical for Switzerland).

The prices are okay if you keep in mind that Switzerland is pretty expensive.
We totally recommend this Restaurant!

Called in at 9pm on a Sat night at the end of April. The place was packed to the rafters with locals (all inside as it was 2c outside!) but the owner managed to find us a table (very close to others but the laughter and chatter drowned out conversations so it was still a nice, private meal). The food was very good, Italian fayre and well worth the visit. Above all, the friendly welcome and lively atmosphere is what we'll remember. Price-wise, not cheap, but where is in Geneva?!

Lots of people, very busy. We just didn't get the appeal...average decor and below average cuisine...I even spoke Italian to them in the hopes of getting the best service and food. Caesar salad...ranch dressing (what!?), hard boiled eggs, tomatoes and spring mix greens....and one piece of wood (included in picture). Pizza La Gondola...amount of eggplant was nonexistent and the pizza was not even cut. Wine was passable at 40 CHF. Spend your money elsewhere.

Excellent italian restaurant close to Lake Lehman and Swissötel Metropole Geneva. Staff are italian and kitchen really knows how to cook italian food. We were five and we had different kind of pastas and pizzas and everything was great.
Really worth it if you are by the area.
