Took my wife there for her birthday. Set the reservation up early and arranged for flowers. We had the 5:30 seating, which is the first of the evening. Arrived at 5:15 and realized there is no lounge there and they do not open the doors until 5:30 so we went downstairs to the lobby bar. We were promptly seated at... More

We stayed at the Grand Geneva Resort so had dinner here one evening. The northern Italian dishes are wonderfully crafted and presented, in a quiet peaceful atmosphere overlooking the lake. It would be ideal for a special occasion. The service was really good and we felt very relaxed while dining.

Brissago is a fabulous Italian restaurant. Unique, Italian dishes along with an excellent wine list. A specialty is their fresh Mozzarella cheese -- flown in from Italy... it is unbelievable.

My wife and I dined here for our first wedding anniversary and everything was fantastic! The staff was nice, food was excellent, and the view is downright beautiful. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a fancier meal in the Lake Geneva area! Will be returning on our next trip!

My fiance and I went here last weekend and were stunned with the service and food provided. Prices were appropriate for the quality and quantity of the food served. The restaurant put rose pedals on our table to set the romantic scene for our engagement celebration! We had the mussels as an appetizer and the crab pasta and salmon for... More

Wow, this place was AMAZING! I lived in Northern Italy, and also love to cook, so I tend to be extremely judgmental when dining at Italian restaurants. Brissago really ranked up there as one of the best Italian places I've eaten in the USA. The menu is divided up into courses, but really, one course is enough for an entire... More

We ate a pasta dish with lobster, where I debated on whether or not to lick the plate! Incredible, accommodating service, as well.

We come to the Grand Geneva every year and this restaurant amazes us every time. The food is flown in from Italy twice weekly. The pasta you eat on Sunday was made in Italy on Friday! We always bring our daughters ages 13 and 10 who absolutely love eating here. My older daughter loves the diver scallops with honey and... More

Brissago has very consistent quality and amazing atmosphere. The service is always good. Would love to see some menu modifications though, as I think I've seen that exact menu for three years or so. Great food though

Ambiance was nice and relaxing. My husband had the salmon with fennel and polenta. The salmon was tough and the halibut special I had was on the small side. Luckily I had the cream of chicken soup and that was really good. My 3 and 5yr olds loved the angel hair pasta with marinara sauce. Service was a little slow... More
