Best white truffle tagliatelle

I had a marvelous truffle tagliatelle at this out wonderful and unassuming restaurant. The pasta was cooked to perfection and then heaped, table side, with a generous portion of white truffles. Simple, elegant and very tasty.

I found it amazing that it took some time to get waited on. Finally when waited on, the waiter was kind. I wasn't that impressed with the food however. It's not a place I would frequent as a man who enjoys different dining experiences.

We decided to try another Italian restaurant in the area of St. Jean but unfortunately we won't come back. Here is why: Service The waiter was not friendly and it took, believe it or not, 15min until we were asked if we would like to drink something. That's a no-go, especially in summer. Food Best average. I ordered a calzone... More

We had a wonderful dinner at il Giardino with our family including our gluten- and dairy-free son. Everyone was helpful and let us know exactly what would work for our son and what would not. His gluten-free pizza will be a highlight of his trip. The fried stuffed zucchini flowers, fresh truffle pizza, and seafood pasta were all fabulous as... More

I love this restaurant. The owner is very hospitable and carrying. The food is delicious. Now they have a new chef, he's making fantastic pizza! And I advice to go there now for truffle season dishes. The tagliolini with white truffles is the best!

Great Italian restaurant, centrally/St Jean , with free underground parking; excellent service and food - always seasonal specialties. We just ad varieties with bolets, truffles - try the pizza bufflone+truffles, simply delicious. lot of good wines (in particular the Sicilian ones0 at good value for money, as prices are typically Geneva - ie main course in the 35-45SFr, starters 15-25SFr.

Don't come here expecting hearty Italian food! The portions are just right for us but compared to many Italian places we've been to the food can be light. Quite interesting summer menu. I had Sicilian lightly battered sardines with oranges and for dessert a very semifreddo.

I like to go to Giardino Romano from time to time, I know I will find in their menu a selection of dishes that make of the quality of the ingredients and their accurate combination its inspiring belief.
