“Good pizza and great service, what a nice surprise.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I came to this restaurant on whim, we we're greeted, seated and drinks orders done in minutes. A good start, our waiter was very friendly and even spoke a little in English which was a nice effort. We both ordered pizzas which were pretty good, lots of toppings and a thin, crispy base. The wine recommended was excellent and the bill reasonable. A thoroughly enjoyable time all round. I would definitely return but maybe try a pasta next time- they also looked every good.

“Excellent pizza in Carouge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

A modern pizzeria with great service. Family friendly, excellent thin crusted pizza, good selection of open wines, perfect for a family meal out or gathering of friends. It's our favorite neighborhood pizzeria. They also do take-away.

“Not the best pasta anymore”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
2 of 5 bubbles 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..
