I have been going to Piatto d'Oro since I was a child, and this restaurant just keeps getting better and better. You know that you will be satisfied each time - the ambiance is very typically Italian, the service is punctual, friendly, but not OTT, and everything from the menu is delicioso!

The terrace is great to sit out on in the summer - Granted, it is not a great view from out there, but the decor and such makes the atmosphere outside very pleasant.

I recommend all the Chef's recommendations, the Norma pizza (for ladies) and Sfiziosa pizza (for gentlemen) - all the pasta dishes are excellent as they really know how to cook it perfectly al dente.

OK, it is not a cheap pizzeria - this is a very good Italian restaurant which serves quality food with efficient service and a pleasant atmosphere, the prices are therefore well worth it.

Very good pizza and pasta in the meyrin area. Pasta Norma is excellent and tasty. Pizzas are also very good and the dough is not too thin and good.

The wine is insanely expensive , 25 CHF for 1/2 litre, and over all kind of pricy with pizzas at 20 CHF and more.

But if you want a good pizza and too lazy to drive to Geneva this is the place.

The Piatta D'Oro is one of the most famous italian restaurant in Geneva. This restaurant is located in Meyrin, so close to the airport, but only 15 min by taxi from city center.
The food is very good and the athmosphere is typical. Always crowded and noisy but it's part of the ambiance.
The pizzas are very good, and you need to try the famous "gratin de pâtes" with curry and shrimps.
During the summer, there is very nice terrasse. You can see and hear planes taking off every 10 min but it's not a problem

Grilled fish was stinking from a probably not well cleaned grill. Service is often minimalist, lazy with a "touch of arrogance"... It used to be a very good place some years ago with a very nice service. What is left are good pizzas, not enough in my opinion to tempt me to come back for some time...

Consider it as an "italian" fast food. Pizza and pasta are OK, nothing to remind of though. And it can be very noisy at lunch.
