A long time ago, F and I were taking a stroll through the city and got a sudden craving for pizza. Carouge, just outside of Geneva, was allegedly founded by an Italian man, so I figured that all of the good pizza would be limited to that area.
Good pizza thrives in Eaux-Vives, in a modest establishment located about one block north of the Jet D’Eau. F had been there with some colleagues from work and thought I would like it so we went to check it out. Dinner at the Restaurant Le Jet D’Eau, named after its almost neighbor, begins promptly at 6:30 p.m.
Directly to your right, after you walk in, is the wood oven where the pizzas are made, friendly chubby-cheeked chef and all. F and I sat down, put in our orders, and in no time our wood-fired pizzas were brought to us. F got a delicious four cheese pizza (so much ricotta!) and I chose one with tomato, eggplant, and the freshest bits of basil that I’ve had in a while. If you can’t shut up about how good the food you’re eating is, then I’d say that’s a great sign.
Other pizza places that I have been told are also very good:
They’re next on my list!

because I’m not hungry enough to eat six.”
