When visiting Geneva I have to plan a meal at Luigia’s, one of the best italian restaurants I have ever eaten at, and my Italian friends confirm the quality of their food. The pizzas are to die for. Start with the parmigiana (fried aubergine with tomato sauce).

we tried this restaurant based on a friends suggestion. The service was fast and friendly. This restaurant is pretty big with a nice covered patio. The pizzas were amazing!!! Definitely will be back.

the food is very good but the service isn't as good. But i do recommend going there for a special occasion as it is quite expensive. Be careful because it is very busy on friday nights and i don't think you can book a table.

Dear Customer. Thank you for your comment. We are sorry if you had this impression regarding our service. Our team is professional and warm and its aim is for you to have a great time at the Luigia. Our philosophy is to offer a homemade cuisine at unbeatable prices for Geneva. Our menu proposes a variety of specialities for any envy and budget. We don’t take reservation as we want to let our clientele free to come whenever she wants. However we always make sure you won’t wait more than 15 minutes to get a table and we always invite you to wait at the bar. We do hope to welcome you back soon to have once again a lovely time at the Luigia. With my best regards, Giuseppe Magnoli, restaurant manager.

Luigia is always full. However, due to the food coming very fast the waiting time is mostly short. The pizzas are very good and come within 10 minutes and taste amazing. It doesn't matter if you take the special pizzas for around 40chf or the normal margaritas for around 20chf they wont disappoint. Not only the pizzas are good, everything on the menu tastes very good.

I would recommend this to everyone as it is very fast and tasted very good, however, is pretty pricy.

We have lived in Geneva for a year now and had given up on dining out because most of the restaurants we have found were overly expensive for what you get. But, we had visitors in town and it was their last night, so we thought we would dispense with cooking at home with all the prep and clean up involved. So, we bit the bullet and searched for a family style restaurant. I remembered a friend recommending Luigia, so we decided to give it a try. Who doesn't like pizza, right? From the first bite, we were hooked. The Borbonica pizza was an explosion of flavors. Despite the layer of prosciutto on top, you could taste each ingredient: olive oil, ripened tomatoes, fresh spices. Everyone in my group was impressed. The Tonnarelli Alla Puttanesca was just perfect in its al dente texture and evenly coated in the savory goodness of the anchovies and sauce. Everything we ordered, actually, was exceptionally good. Yes, it was very expensive, but not more than we have come to expect of restaurants in Geneva, and we thought the quality of the food and experience was worth the price (which is something we cannot say for most places in this city). We went right at opening time for dinner and had no trouble getting seated right away. The servers were quick and efficient. The restaurant was spacious. We dined on the covered terrace, which was perfect in the cool evening with its intermittent drizzling of rain. My daughter, an avowed hater of pasta, is a convert and wants to go back. So we are going back next Thursday to celebrate a birthday. Thanks, Luigia, for giving us a favorite place to go for dinner when we don't want to cook and have some extra cash in our pockets.
