It's a lovely place in a nice location. But we had a four course dinner (starter, pasta, second and dessert), two glasses of Prosecco and a bottle of still water and the bill was an eye-popping CHF 285!!!! The food was certainly ok, but nothing special or memorable at all. The Prosecco was CHF 18/glass and the still water (which... More

We went there for a celebration this weekend and it was well worth every moment of it... The table was well prepared, service was was fast and very friendly. Also, the ambiance is quite serene although a busy street is running next to the restaurant.

I enjoyed italian food in this countryside restaurant. They offer very good italian foods. I had pasta with scamorza cheese- and it was heaven! They also had a good selection of Italian and local wines. The only thing is that it is too pricey for an Italian restaurant.

I have been to this restaurant in many occasions, mainly because of invitations. Each time I fail to understand how it still remains in the business with such poor quality food and such exorbitant prices. Its location is definitely beautiful and the service very welcoming and warm though.

The meals are just incredible and worth to go out of Geneva center (although it's just 10 mins driving)! Keep place for the deserts- The tray with desserts will make you the happiest person in the world! The service is very attentive! The prices are higher than average because of gastronomic type of cuisine, but you also can try Primo... More

We went for dinner during a beautiful August night, and sat at the terrace, which, to our surprise, felt like in Tuscany, not to say we were feeling part of a movie set. However, the interior is quite rustic, and would not recommend it. Service was quite friendly, quick, and professional, even though it took them more than expected to... More

We had a very good experience here where we jumped in at 13.45 while the kitchen would close at 14.00 for lunch. Still they took our orders and had a great great lunch, this is a place I would recommend for summer lunches and dinner at their garden terrace, but not likely I place I would visit and eat inside...

Had a bad experience with a promotional offer, but besides that, the prices are very expensive for what you get (30 Fr for an entrée, 50+ for main, desserts around 20). The service is on the slow side and tends to be most concerned with bringing 10 franc bottles of unbranded water, whether you finished the previous one or not.... More

We were a big group and were happy to find a table on a saturday night. Wine was excellent but portions were ridiculously small, especially for pasta . The tomato sauce for one of the pasta dishes tasted like coming straight out of a tin. Meat dishes were a bit nicer such as the sweetbread and the piccata. So if... More

If you want to have a meal away from home but still wishes to be at home in a warm elegant surrounding or if you want to celebrate a wonderful occasion then this is the place. The food and service is indeed super and you feel its heavenly taste. Make sure to include deserts in your plan as they bring... More
