“Smallest portions in town”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

We were a group of roughly 15 people and went there for lunch. We had been warned about the super tiny pizzas (literally a 20-centimeter diameter) they serve but nonetheless decided to try the place out. Personally, I'm not going to go there ever again especially because of the service. One single, loud waiter who keeps yelling because she can't keep track of the orders and flips out when it comes to paying partly by cash and partly by credit card isn't exactly what I call a welcoming environment.
Overrated place.

“Unfriendly and narrow-minded”
Reviewed September 10, 2011

By looking through the dessert menue we we looking forward to our ice cream (for CHF8.10!). The waiter told us to get 2 bowls of vanille ice cream, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. All we got was a little, tiny cup with 1 bowl of vanilla ice cream, artificial chocolate cream from a can and whipped cream on top, which even overtopped the bowl. It was more whipped cream than anything else. As we informed the waiter that this can't be it-for CHF 8.10 we only got a rude answer like:" You are swiss, you know about the price".
Also the other ice cream we ordered were too expensive for what we got. Too much whipped cream, little ice cream, fresh fruit was canned fruit and strawberry sauce was artificial from a tube.
We just wanted to have a nice dessert for celebrating a birthday but for sure we will never ever return to this place which was also very dark, strange decorated and the atmosphere made ourselves feel angry, and uncomfortable.

“NICE PIZZA”
Reviewed October 29, 2010

It is a nice restaurant close to the train station. The staff is friendly.Me menu is small, It is famous for its pizza. I had 2 pizzas (they are small and as an adult I needed two) and my wife had a salad, both were good. We had a dessert which was also good, prices are reasonable for Switzerland, nothing to complain

“Probably the best pizza I ever tried”
Reviewed October 22, 2010

Every time I visit Geneva, it must go there. I never tried a so outstanding pizza ever. I also recommend the "campagnarde salade" (ham, egg, corn and a delicious salad sauce). Some of the waiters have been working there for over 30 years and the ambient is always wonderful.
