Reviewed October 30, 2012

the pizza was very nice considering it's not Italian. The service was friendly and the dessert was lovely.

“Not the best pasta anymore”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I used to go regularly to the Boccalino for their Papardelle al salmone, but my last visit was deceiving. Don't know if they changed the chef, but I didn't find the previous taste.

“Average at best”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

As per some other reviews the pizzas are fine, the rest of the food that we tried (only two visits in many years of living locally) was adequate. I'm actually bored writing this review because it is such an unremarkable pizzeria, especially when there are so many better exponents within walking distance..

“Nice family restaurant for Geneva habitants”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Nothing special for visitors though. Good especially with kids and large groups. Decent italian food for reasonable prices. Good for a relaxed dinner.

“Pizza & tiramisu on terrace, nothing else”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

I live in the neighbourhood and have tried to eat here twice.
The pizzas are quite good, and there is a large terrace The tiramisu was also OK.

On the downside, all the other plates are not good. Really awful fatty and smelly fish, frankly not eatable. Pasta was bad. Service not good at all.

So limit yourself to a pizza!
