Great pasta, service, dessert, etc... many locals and they don't take advantage of tourists. Prices were fair.

The place is warm in color and attitude. The food is simple, tasty, fresh. Italians do love it since they have Rich SALADS, difficult to find in Geneve. Done with the Italian style: easy and not too much sauce. Only Extra Vergin Olive oil.The best! For lunch is perfect quick, gentle the staff and 17 for a salad can for... More

For just having a pasta dish it can be recommended (CHF 20-28), the meat dishes are more overpriced. The stuff is french or spanish spoken only. We tried to approach them in English, but they always answered back in French (and this in such an international city). - The prices for wines are also on the upper limit. Open wines... More

Very good pasta, the choice is quite impressive, and I thought it would make it less good but actually no. Careful, the portions are much bigger than the Geneva average, go only if hungry

My wife and I came across this place while seeking a dinner location in old Geneva town. A little off the main square with the more touristy standard fare, this was a great find for one to try local wines (which Geneva has many fine ones) and have a decent bite. It's small and cozy with many regulars obviously attending.... More

The restaurant is usually always full and one must ideally try to reserve especially at lunchtime during the week. The choice of pasta is good, service is friendly and fast. A good alternative in geneva's old town

Situated in the old town of Geneva, near to the parking St. Antoine, access is easy. The Italian style restaurant is quite small (a bar and about 10 tables), is nicely decorated (with Italian vine and oil bottles - hence "vino olio"). Some entry plates offer good food at reasonable price; main courses and wines are on the expensive side... More

We ate dinner here early on a Tuesday night. The artichoke and parmigiano starter was good for 2 or more if you get a 2nd one. The Olaf's salmon was tasty. We also got the caprese salad, which had just mozzarella and fresh tomatoes. Very delicious. For dinner we had a variety of pastas. The penne was al dente. The... More

In the heart of the old town of Geneva, just meters away from St Peter's Cathedral, this lovely cafe is the ideal place for a midday break.
