“Okay, thought it would be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

The menu was decent, but as we heard our waiter explain some of the specials to the table next to us, we heard things he didn't tell us. I would have liked to have been told all my choices.

What I did order, a gnocchi with smoked mozarella was good, but nothing spectacular to write home about.

Also, I ordered gelato for dessert and it tasted as if it had been in the freezer for a while. The texture was very grainy and it had a freezer-burn taste to it.

“One of our favorites"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

Whenever we go to Lake Geneva we insist on dinner at Sopra.

The restaurant has a warm inviting atmosphere. Small tables are set close enough to be cozy but not crowded. (ask to be by the wall if you like more privacy) They bring your drinks out right away but you wait for your bread to be served. That is because they bake it fresh for each guest. Delicious!

They have a nice menu but I highly recommend the Smoked Chicken Gnocchi. Light smokey flavor, generous chicken chunks and tons of gnocchi, We always take enough home to have dinner for a second night.

There are plenty of casual, bar type restaurants in Lake Geneva. If you want something a little bit nicer, this is the place for you.
