This was my first visit though my friend had been a couple of years ago. I can't say what was going on in the kitchen but the first pasta dish was completely tasteless. The second dish tasted bad. The wine was nothing to write home about. Indeed the head waiter had not heard of a very well known wine my... More

The concierge at my hotel told me about this place, describing it as honest and trustworthy. We decided to give it a try and were given a table facing the street. No big deal, however, as we understood this was a good place for truffles, a true delicacy. In fact, they celebrate truffles as a festival, putting them on many... More

The restaurant is very nice and cozy. I love the room with the wall paintings. We tried the Pavé du boeuf with white truffles and it was very good. For dessert I loved the vanilla ice cream with white truffles. Service is very good. Even if you have not had truffles before, it is worth to try them for a... More

One of a few restaurants open on a Sunday night in Geneva. The interior décor was lovely, romantic. An Italian restaurant with a French feel. Food was excellent as was the service. By Geneva standards, was affordable.

Ate at the restaurant for the first time this week. I was not impressed. Upon arrival we were met by an unfriendly waiter who looked down on us. We were put in a section of the restaurant that seemed reserved for customers he did not like the look of! The restaurant was pretentious - with truffles and live lobster in... More

This is a delightful restaurant centrally located, the inside is of the Epoch era. The staff were welcoming and as soon as we were seated offered a glass of prosecco it being an Italian restaurant. It was also the truffle season several dishes contained truffles and there was a 4 course truffle menu which my wife chose, I decided to... More

A conveniently situated restaurant in central Geneva close to Jardin Anglais. Initially comes across as a touristy institution but after the food one realizes that this is a good restaurant. The restaurant was short staffed and the owner/manager was having a bad day ...despite this the meal was outstanding especially the generous garnishing with truffles

I ordered penne AOP. They brought some weird pasta with tomato sauce. I told to the waitress that this was not what I ordered. She insisted that these were my penne AOP. Not wanting to argue with her, I did not insist, but asked to see the cook. Who never came to see me. I finally complained with another waiter,... More
