Best quality to price ratio in the whole of Geneva. A very decent pizza out of a proper pizza oven for only 10 chf. Would recommend it to anyone.

We sat outside on a warm July night and as we ate our pizza ("Claudio") and seafood pasta and sipped on wine (Colle Massari) the pizzas kept flying out the door. Obviously a hit with the locals we were tipped off about this place from our hotel concierge (Tiffany Hotel - thanks Jimmy!). So glad we did. The wood oven... More

Amazing deal for good quality takeaway pizza for only 10frs for a full size pizza. Don t bother with anything else in takeaway land this beats it any day for value for money. Will return many times
