We had a big group of people and they were very accommodating. Our waitress was wonderful and very knowledgeable of the menu. My husband had the Chicken Marsala that was on butternut squash ravioli and he still talks about it. The food was very good.

This is our family's favorite casual Italian restaurant in Geneva. We live their delicious pizza! Our son is allergic to some tree nuts (pine, cashew, macadamia) and we don't worry about cross-contamination because their pizzas are made in a different spot from their other foods (at bough we make it a point to ask every time we eat here in...

This is a go-to for us in Geneva. It can be loud and crowded, but the food is always amazing. The appetizers are huge and great to share. Order the bruschetta; it's delicious. The pizza's are heaped with toppings, well-balanced and seasoned just right.

Cotto A Legna has to be my favorite restaurant since moving to the US three years ago. The food is always amazing, no matter what you have off the menu. The seafood is always cooked to perfection and the pizzas are cooked French in the pizza oven in front of you. Ok, it gets busy, and sometimes the service is... More

A pleasant surprise. Expansive menu of unique offerings. The Carpaccio plate was a fantastic starter. There were so many interesting offerings on the menu my wife and I just couldn't decide. We ended up splitting one of their craft pizzas. Everything was fantastic. We will be back.

As we entered the door, we were greeted by a harried waitstaff who told us to sit at any empty table. So we did. He soon hurried by and told us we picked a table that he was reserving for someone else, although there was no indication the table was reserved. At least he apologized. Service was very slow and...

Being Italian I go in to Italian restaurants with lower expectations.... This was amazing, totally surpassed my expectations. One of the best all around experiences I've ever had. I loved the ambiance, our server Joel was very attentive and fun to talk to. This is a great place for any occasion! This will be on my top 5 list of... More

The food was out of this world...from the bruschetta to the asparagus salad to the pasta with shrimp. Our server Chris was tremendous, with awesome recommendations. I will return. The only thing that I didn't like was that it got very loud. This was a Wednesday evening, busy but not overcrowded.

Great Pizza, amazing bruschetta. Large, unique beer selection. Nice patio and family friendly. If your kids love trains, chose the patio!
