Huge disappointment with food (soggy sicilienne penne, their signature dish), very slow service and relatively expensive for what you get. I won't be going there again.

Incontro: a classic Italian restaurant. Pizzas are good. Pasta is good. Recommend the penne siciliana. Best price/quantity/quality ratio in all of Geneva. Service is a bit sporadic though. Especially on terrace in the summer. But if you're looking for a no fuss good Italian which...More

Good overall Italian restaurant. Nothing really special. However if take the PENNE SICILIANA you are in for a treat. Nothing is really extraordinary but nothing is bad. Out of the huge choice of Italian restaurants in Geneva this is very decent. Pricing is correct and...More

One of the best tasting penne a la siciliana in Geneva. The home made red chillies in olive oil that they provide is just amazing. But the most impressive thing is that you don't get just one plate but they bring you a second serving...More
