Quaint Italian restaurant, thin large wood fire pizzas and wine by the carafe. If you like soccer they have a TV for sport.

Well located in Rue de Lausanne, close to the central station (Gare de Cornavin), decent Neapolitan style, oven baked pizza (not usual in Geneva). Salads are very good as well as service. Worth a try if in need of Italian food!

You have to try the seafood risotto here. It's the most tasty risotto I ever had (ps I am only 29 though). Price not too costly but absolutely worthwhile for the food. A must taste.

Today we went for lunch and ordered pasta tomatoes and pasta gorgonzola. Great ! We ordered a roquette salad and Italian house wine. Go and enjoy !

Bad food and bad service, all together. Only the bad quality of the food compares to the incredibly bad waiter. The salad was pretty bad and the fish dish was small, cold and unsavory.
