where is the best Italian pizza in Geneva

I live in Zurich but will be visiting Geneva tomorrow to see the Tindersticks play live.
Me and my buddy are kinda pizza conneusours (how do you spell this word?), so would like to discover geneva's best ITALIAN style pizza.

Any tips?

Thanks
Greg

So far the best I've found is at Da Paolo's which can be found here. It is a smoking restaurant though if that is a problem for you...

Re: where is the best Italian pizza in Geneva

Thanks, judging by their prices they gotta be good

Re smoking, I don't know what the current public smoking law in Geneva is - in Zurich pretty much all restaurants are smoking (to different extent). So unless Da Paolo is smoked up beyond normal it will be fine.

Re: where is the best Italian pizza in Geneva

The best pizzas I've had in Geneva are at the top floor restaurant of the ILO (run by Eurest I think) only open midday (on weekdays) I'd imagine:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=d...53809&t=h&z=13

I'm definetly no "conoisseur" but I've had a lot of pizzas in Geneva and they are my favourite (=nicest crust).

Not the best location for a romantic meal but if you are in the area and looking for a relatively cheap lunch I would recommend it.

Re: where is the best Italian pizza in Geneva

It's all very relative, what's good for you is not necessarily good for me. You , for instance, may want a more tomato taste whereas i don't. I may not care too much about paying Sfr 25.-- for a pizza, you may...and so on.

Re: where is the best Italian pizza in Geneva

Well thanks guys for the tips. We went to Da Paolo's and as described, it was exceptionally good. Maybe a bit heavy on topping and it won't de-throne Azzurro in Bern. All-in-all a great experience. We got there around 7 which is apparently too early for the locals so it was easy to get a table. Smoke wasn't an issue.
(Unlike at the concert venue later on - L'Usine. Seemed like everybody in Geneva smokes. Tindersticks played a flawless concert though. Great night.)

Re: where is the best Italian pizza in Geneva

Da Paolo is good, Ponte Vecchio too

But the real best is the tiny pizza restaurant Espresso Club at the rue des Pâquis 25 just to the side of Gelato Mania ( which is the best Gelateria in Geneva BTW )

Re: BEST PIZZA à Genève !!!

The best I have found so far is La Cuccagna in Carouge, tram-stop Armes: http://www.resto-rang.ch/info.cfm?canton=GE&restono=745.
The pizzas are awesome and the pasta is not only very good but also comes in a huge quantity (you actually get two plates - the 2nd one waiting for you in an oven while you are enjoying the first one ).


I have heard that Da Paolo's and another one called Il Carnevale di Venezia are quite good too, but I haven't been to those ones yet.

Re: where is the best Italian pizza in Geneva

Hi, I bring back this old post because the other one from Domino's reminded me I haven't got a good pizza in a while.

Which is for you the best pizza place that delivers home? (In Geneva area) And, because of my tight budget I have to ask also... which one is the cheapest?
