I expected far more when eating out in Lake Geneva for dinner. I consider myself a foodie and my fiancé and I were excited to finally get a babysitter and go out to enjoy a nice evening. We did have a nice evening despite how absolutely awful the food was.
We started the evening with what I feel should be a hallmark dish in any Sicilian joint worth it's salt, the eggplant copponatta. Not only was it under seasoned, it tasted rancid; Thankfully my fiancé had ordered a glass of chianti which did a great job of washing away the taste of the in inspiring dish.
The mussels were second try and I must say that they smelled delicious when they were placed on the table but that's where it began and ended, one word over cooked! The single worst thing to do to a perfectly good mussel!! Luckily by that point we had a full glass of wine in us and giggled to ourselves what may have gone wrong and how we would have repaired the catastrophe.
We decided to then split one of my favorite dishes of all time chicken saltimboca.
So at this point we had mediocre expectations but I do have to say that the chef outdid both previous dishes by leaving out one key ingredient- fresh sage!!! The one little leaf that I only eat in one dish and it was nowhere to be found!!!! Ahhhh!!!!
So we tried, nice decor, chianti "thumbs up", food was just not great. I really wanted to like the food but I think the kitchen may have been abducted by aliens.
All in all there are much better places for Italian food in Lake Geneva but servi e was nice and decor was also ok.
