“Good service, free limoncello, nice pizzas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

This restaurants seems like a standard Italian restaurant. We went there for lunch and were surprised with the quality of the pizzas and the service. Staff were friendly and they even offered us a free limoncello afterwards. Will definitely go back there!

“tasty home -style Italian cooiking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

This is a neighborhood joint, well patronized as it richly deserves. I can only speak of my one experience which was a tagliatelle of squid and squid ink which was bursting with flavour and perfectly cooked. One would suspect homemade pasta but who knows, or cares,it was very fine indeed, the small squid cooked to perfection. This costs 23,50 CHF but you'll be sopping up the sauce with the good bread in the basket unless you have better will power than I do.
Nice and friendly and efficient service. Homey decor...

“The Portuguese and Spanish staff caters...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2010

The Portuguese and Spanish staff caters you some genuine Italian specialties. Although this restaurant offers some standard dishes that any Italian restaurant will offer in Geneva, they do have a seasonal part of the menu that changes every few months. This is generally the menu you want to try, as it includes things like pasta with wild boar, fresh mushrooms or mussels. They always have a recommended wine which will be at a lowered price. At the end of your meal, free grappa or limoncello is customary.

The best aspect of the place, however, is the service. Come once and you'll be treated as a valued customer. Come twice and you'll be an old friend. You can always ask for adjustments on your food, and it's one of the few places bringing a free water jug without having to ask for it.

The bill is in line with prices in Geneva. Take care to ask a table not near the oven, as it can get hot. The place is kid friendly.

Overall, it is a restaurant that makes you want to come back for the food and the friendly atmosphere.
