We came at this Italian restaurant after the movies on a Saturday evening. We received a warm welcome and took place at a table on the (not very well) heated terrace. The drinks and salads came soon enough, but the wait for the other dishes was unbearably long. When they finally arrived, the pizzas were hardly hot. This means that... More

I have been to Da Paolo many times before and decided to come back with our kids after years since we left Geneva , based on its trip advisor rating. The place is crowded beyond any reason.

We came in after a windy walk without 'le jet d eaux' and although prices are not low, the food quality was great! Real italian atmosphere and still very tidy toilet!

It s our favorite pizzeria in town... lively atmosphere and efficient service... On Sunday no booking, so you better arrive around 7pm to get quickly a table... otherwise, sip a Spritz while you wait!!!

It was very busy, even for a Sunday night, nonetheless the service was fantastic, did not have to wait long for our food and the waiters were all efficient... More

Busy, crowded, waiters buzzing around.. but all in a nice Italian way, with the looks and atmosphere of a ristorante di Napoli. First advantage - they speak French, English but most of all Italian ... second one - if too crowded - you are treated... More

Not as good as it used to be . We went for late lunch . Penne Arabiata was not tasty at all . Service is good but the food in general had decreased in taste & quality.
