We needed a meal having arrived late at the Ibis and the restaurant is conveniently situated only a few minutes walk around the corner and is open after 10pm! It is nothing out of this world but there was nothing we could complain about, the service was attentive, the pizzas and risotto were fine. All in all a good option... More

We ate here several times while staying at the crown plaza next door. The pasta was good (average) and the pizza was great. They also have a buffet with a wide selection of things that you can make a full meal from it. I would go back and definitely preferred the food here versus the restaurant at the hotel.

We had two team dinners with about 50 people. They did a good job getting the meals out. First night we had salad and pizza's Piazza was good as we tried many varieties only one most didn't like was the tuna pizza. Service was good. they could of used another waiter. Second night was a chicken with mushrooms. Very good.

Had carpaccio to start which was good, then the pizza! Now, they have a large pizza oven and the chef cooking them almost in front of where we were sitting,... More

Second time in 2 months and very disappointed. If you go for pizza, ok but do not try the fish even if they told you it's a fresh one. It's frozen and without Taste.

This restoran you can hardly see near main street near airport in Geneve.Inside are lot of people...and allways full.Why?...There is no such restoran nearby. Prices are very high...you can spend so much money for usual food . It looks simpatic with nice people who work there. I was there 3 times...first time...last time...and never again!

The restaurant is relatively sympathetic. The prices are astronomical, the food is very poor. Pizza Prosciutto costs 20 € and it is not prosciutto but parma ham, 2-3 pieces of trimmed by laser. Prices in €, change in CHF?! 1 CHF = 1 € Classic manipulation appropriate to some countries such as Egypt, Morocco, etc.

Have eaten here several times ... the food is always good and the service attentive, but it is too pricey for its quality. Worth a visit though ... I guess as Geneva is generally expensive they can get away with it

I was staying at Crown Plaza that is just next door, and we went to Giaconda for Dinner. The Restaurant was quite busy and the staff was really friendly. We had the menu, which normally you don’t have at night, but here they have always a pizza menu and a pasta menu. I had the Past menu that included a... More
