Awesome place. The truffle pasta is actually the best i have ever tried! Endless congrats to the chef for the simplicity and the awesome, mind killin experience. Vitello tonnato is perfect too. Awesome place for a romantic dinner for two.

Small location. Fabulous food. Truffles pasta to die for. A must visit on trip to Geneva. One of the best meals ever. Not cheap. But well worth it

Great experience! will be back soon. Food is delicious, fresh pasta done in house! service wonderful for a very fair price. I'm in love with this restaurant (and I'm a pretty tough client usually;)

One of my Geneva-based colleagues introduced me to this tiny, cozy Italian restaurant in the old town section of Geneva on a tiny cobblestone street just a few steps below the cannons and a stone's throw from the cathedral. The pasta is FABULOUS (particularly the...More

Had an amazing meal at this nice italian restaurant. Tiny place though so it happens that the waiter bump into you. Perfect for a quiet dinner with partner

A group of 5 from 3 different companies and 4 different nationalities had a really nice dinner at La Citadella recently. The restaurant was almost empty - a Monday night - but the service and food were great. We shared starters, which were too much...More

I went there because of TripAdvisor, and I regret wasting a valuable meal slot there. It's tiny - i mean really tiny. The waiter was OK, but they didn't have the wine I wanted. I know that people will say that I'm a heathen for...More

The place has gone downhill- it used to be awesome but now the ridiculous wait time for food (45 minutes for pasta) , frantic waiter service and in the end way too salty food makes it an unreliable choice in a city where there are...More

I found this place through TripAdvisor. the reviews looked good and we were literally around the corner. I have to say i was disappointed. The waiter was generally grumpy and they didn't have at least 3 mid-range wines i asked for. Two of us ordered...More

Bonjour, madame ou monsieur, je suis le proprietaire du restaurant la cittadella, je ne suis pas d'accord avec votre opinion pour deux raisons: 1°: la photo du plat de la viande avec la pasta ca nous regarde pas mais c'est plutot du restaurant Molino et pas dans notre restaurant. Nous ne mettons pas pasta et viande ensemble!! Typique des pizzeria. Notre pasta est exclusivement fait maison tous les jours avec de la farine friscello speciale provenant du Ticino (Suisse). Sur l'addition il y a marqué "menu du soir" c'est à dire une entrée, dégustation de pasta maison, viande ou poisson de prémière choix, dessert maison. La pasta à l'encre de seiche est fait maison. Le vin est de prémière choix italien. 2° je vous demande donc d'enlever la photo que ne nous appartient pas dans le plus bref délais sinon vous risquer que je vous porte plainte. 3° Le serveur vous a donné un menu ou il y a des prix, pour quoi vous avez choisir un plat de pasta à la place d'un menu, vous auriez epargné plus au moins 60 chf!!! Je vous attends dans notre restaurant pour pouvoir vous donner plus des motivations!! Bien cordialement, Claudio
