My girlfriend and I traveled around Europe for 2 weeks with Geneva being our final destination. Our waiter, Gabrielle (likely misspelled), was incredibly helpful (the entire menu is in Italian). We ended up shutting the place down due to our long conversations with him. I had a gnochi pasta with a red sauce which was some of the best I... More

As a vegetarian I chose often an Italian restaurant as I can be sure to get a good choice. I've been to Citta Della already 4-5 times. Don't go there if you expect Pizza, but do go there and treat your palate with unique yet authentic Italian food. Burrata di buffalo and also homemade pasta with fresh truffles - delicious!... More

A small place with only 15 or 20 covers. Fantastic Italian food. Some truly great truffle dishes (especially Risotto) some lovely wine, and a really snug atmosphere. The walk up the hill after dinner helps with the excess calories.

Each year when I am in Geneva for business, I bring a special group of friends and colleagues for a delightful dinner at La Cittadella. This year, I had the pleasure of bringing two groups. The atmosphere and food quality will not disappoint. Each time I try something different and each meal has been delicious. I always start with the... More

During my stay in Geneva I visited the CittaDella. If you like Italian food and you are not so price sensitive, visit this restaurant. It's a small one with perhaps 10 tables but you feel like in Italy. Without exaggreation, the noods are wonderful. Undortunately the Tiramisu didn't have such a high quality so the CittaDella gets "only" 4 poinst.... More

Ok so, the restaurant is small so if you are thinking of meeting up with a bunch of people to get loaded and party, don't. Unless you reserve the whole restaurant. I had the seafood something and my wife had the seafood pasta... Not worth it for the price. Mine was 48 CHF for three big shrimp and slices of... More

This is the best Italian food in Geneva. The service is excellent.... Try any menu with truffles. Excellent. The Buratta is fresh and authentic. It is very pricey, but for once in a while, why not

Really helpful, friendly staff. Generous portions. The osso bocco on the night we were there was perfect. Not cheap, but fair.

My husband and I visited this restaurant yesterday evening. It was a bit hard to find, but with the help of google maps, it was easy. The restaurant is quite small (4 tables outside, and about 8 tables inside). Once you enter, it is very cozy and warm with delicious scents emanating from the kitchen. The food was homemade, hearty,... More
