Good Italian Pasta, Servings A Little Small

We were walking by Citadella and thought the pasta dishes we saw others eating looked good. There were no tables available outside at the time so we told the man we would be back and asked him to reserve a table for us. They have a small dining room inside but it was stifling hot in there.

Geneva is one of the most expensive cities in the world and accordingly this restaurant is also far from cheap. The cheapest supper will cost about CHF 35. Nevertheless, this is a really good unpretentious traditional little Italian restaurant conveniently situated in the city centre. The service and the food are both excellent and I would happily go back.

I went here almost a year ago to celebrate a friend birthday and the experience was good. Nice atmosphere and food.The pasta with lobster was delicious and the staff was very friendly. I will come once again for sure on my next trip to Geneva.

One of our favorite restaurants in Geneva. Home grown, quality food. It is fantastic. Limited seating so reservations are a must!

I friend of mine said the Geneva seems to lack good quality restaurants, with far too many of its restaurants being focused on fast food and service for the masses with very little attention to details. however, Citadella is the complete opposite. this is fine dining at its very best. great food, great service. 10/10

Great Italian food in a picturesque part of town. We actually visited a few times to try the different options on the menu and always left more than satisfied. Towards the top end cost wise, but nothing cheap in Geneva and this restaurant especially good value for money given the quality. Hope to visit again

Having travelled many times to Italy, its hard to find authentic back country hearty italian food anywhere other than Italy itself. CittaDella nails it on the head. By far the best italian restaurant in Geneva let alone Switzerland. Amazing food and genuine service.

A fantastic little restaurant hidden in the old town of Geneva. Fantastic food, great service, friendly and helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. Also great for vegetarians. It only seats about 20 or so people so be sure to make a reservation! Warmly recommended.
