Dinner with a friend. Very well received and the restaurant is adapted for persons with mobility problems. The veggies pizzas were delicious and salads fresh. The pastry a little wet but all round the food was great. A little proxy for the area though it's not the high streets! On the downside the service was too much in our face... More

Service was pretty prompt and very friendly. A couple of us had intended ordering pizza but were put off when a complimentary small pizza was offered while we perused the menu - it was limp and tasteless. Main dishes were mixed - boeuf tartare was very nice, but a couple of the speciality truffle dishes were a let down -... More

I have coeliac disease and was grateful to be able to order gluten free pizza. Very nice atmosphere and excellent service. You pay Geneva prices but that's to be expected.

We've been customers of Il Giardino Romano for a while now. The food is always excellent, very well prepared (as in a gastronomic restaurant), and the pizzas are delicious. Service is polite and over the top. The owner, Stefano Fanari, is very nice and has always some good specialties from Sardinia, his region of origin, to suggest you. Classy, clean,... More

I found it amazing that it took some time to get waited on. Finally when waited on, the waiter was kind. I wasn't that impressed with the food however. It's not a place I would frequent as a man who enjoys different dining experiences.

We decided to try another Italian restaurant in the area of St. Jean but unfortunately we won't come back. Here is why: Service The waiter was not friendly and it took, believe it or not, 15min until we were asked if we would like to drink something. That's a no-go, especially in summer. Food Best average. I ordered a calzone... More

We had a wonderful dinner at il Giardino with our family including our gluten- and dairy-free son. Everyone was helpful and let us know exactly what would work for our son and what would not. His gluten-free pizza will be a highlight of his trip. The fried stuffed zucchini flowers, fresh truffle pizza, and seafood pasta were all fabulous as... More

I had a marvelous truffle tagliatelle at this out wonderful and unassuming restaurant. The pasta was cooked to perfection and then heaped, table side, with a generous portion of white truffles. Simple, elegant and very tasty.

I love this restaurant. The owner is very hospitable and carrying. The food is delicious. Now they have a new chef, he's making fantastic pizza! And I advice to go there now for truffle season dishes. The tagliolini with white truffles is the best!
