“Great pizzas ....but huge!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2012

Busy & buzzy even on a Wednesday night, very Italian with all the family around the shop. Ordered a pizza each from a great selection. Arrived quickly & was fabulous but huge with lots of fresh toppings & a thin well cooked base. Only managed 1/2 each but remainder was instantly packed for us & it was just as good the next day.

“Noisy and not much space”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2012 via mobile

- ordered a 4-season (quattro staggione) pizza. Not much on it so we asked the waiter if he could add some stuff, which he did. Unfortunately, the cold dry tomatoes and cold eggplant cooled down the pizza. And the paste of the pizza was hard as hell. My hands were sore of cutting the pizza. Oh, and the pizza oven is electric.

- the waiters were great, they offered us (party of 5), 1 limoncello & 1 meloncello bottle (it was yuck !) on the 4 bottles ordered.

- around 10pm they put music on, 80's music. 2 or 3 songs is OK, but it went on and on and on, and it felt like it was getting louder and louder and louder. That tired us out.

- the price was OK for what we had (glasses of wine, beers, antipasti dish and pizza).

- I won't go back because of the pizza.

“Mouth watering Pizza in Geneva”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

Wonderful family run restaurant, with terrace for the summer. It doesn't look much from the outside, but go in and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, as if you were walking into a Pizzeria at home, in Italy.
The pizzas are wonderful. HUGE and very thin, with very fresh produce.
Have not tried the pastas, but having spoken to the owner, he has told me how all the pasta and ravioli are home made.
Always packed full of locals on week-ends, better to book. One of the best pizzas I have ever had (and this comes from an italian).
Highly recommended to book on week-ends.
Closed on Sundays.
