Geneva is full of pizzerias, and everyone has their favourite. For the cordial, relaxed welcome as well as good pizza, one of my own favourites is the Printanière.
The menu features an attractive variety of different types of pizzas, but it’s the texture of the pizza bases and the super fresh ingredients that keep me coming back. I’m partial to the goat’s cheese pizza (pizza au chèvre) here; nevertheless, whatever you decide to order, you can be sure that the base will be thin and crispy, the topping ingredients delicious, and the extra-spicy spicy oil brings a tear even to the eye of this chilli addict.
If you would prefer some good pasta, there is plenty of that on the menu, as well as a succulent gratin d’aubergines and a choices of meats and fish. Accompany it all with a glass of Monica di Sardegna or Nero d’Avola and finish in style with an espresso and limoncello, or a grappa if you don’t have a sweet tooth.
With the wood-burning pizza oven in the front, the Printanière is cosy on the cold winter nights, and the terrace on a quiet street at the back ensures that it’s still a good place to hang out during the midsummer heat.
