Awesome place. The truffle pasta is actually the best i have ever tried! Endless congrats to the chef for the simplicity and the awesome, mind killin experience. Vitello tonnato is perfect too. Awesome place for a romantic dinner for two.

Small location. Fabulous food. Truffles pasta to die for. A must visit on trip to Geneva. One of the best meals ever. Not cheap. But well worth it

Great experience! will be back soon. Food is delicious, fresh pasta done in house! service wonderful for a very fair price. I'm in love with this restaurant (and I'm a pretty tough client usually;)

One of my Geneva-based colleagues introduced me to this tiny, cozy Italian restaurant in the old town section of Geneva on a tiny cobblestone street just a few steps below the cannons and a stone's throw from the cathedral. The pasta is FABULOUS (particularly the chef's parpardelle and the tagliolini with basil pesto, fresh mozzarella, and tomatoes). While the menu... More

A group of 5 from 3 different companies and 4 different nationalities had a really nice dinner at La Citadella recently. The restaurant was almost empty - a Monday night - but the service and food were great. We shared starters, which were too much for us and main courses were excellent for everyone. Not sure of value, as I... More

I went there because of TripAdvisor, and I regret wasting a valuable meal slot there. It's tiny - i mean really tiny. The waiter was OK, but they didn't have the wine I wanted. I know that people will say that I'm a heathen for saying this, but when I go to an Italian, I want to see things like... More

The place has gone downhill- it used to be awesome but now the ridiculous wait time for food (45 minutes for pasta) , frantic waiter service and in the end way too salty food makes it an unreliable choice in a city where there are a lot of options which are better and not as expensive. It

I found this place through TripAdvisor. the reviews looked good and we were literally around the corner. I have to say i was disappointed. The waiter was generally grumpy and they didn't have at least 3 mid-range wines i asked for. Two of us ordered fillet steak and they were grainy in texture and lacked the quality the price tag...
