I was here for a quiet celebratory Christmas family dinner, and it was first class all the way. I confess I hadn't been here for close to a decade, but this was a fabulous reacquaintance, and it surpassed all previous experiences.

Thanks to faultless attention by the best trained waiters and maitre d'hotel, the experience is truly special and memorable. Special mention to Ciro Santorino who orchestrated the perfect service for me and my particular needs on that day. Food is of very high level and flavors literally burst in your mouth all at once. Prices are a little bit too... More

The food is nothing special, no dish to recommend and the prices are completely unreasonable for the quality offered, even for Geneva. A waste of money.

We are kind of regular guests at Il Lago, as since our first try there we've seduced by the service and cuisine. They recently changed for a new Chef, and I absolutely wanted to write another review as the arrival of Massimiliano (the new Chef) a pure GENIUS, is a consecration for this already great restaurant. This man is so... More

If you wish to have a light lunch on the terrace but you can't beat the location and the resulting fine ambience.

The service here is some of the best we encountered in Geneva! Highly recommend taking the tasting menu so you don't have to make any decisions. The pasta was absolutely perfect, and a highlight was definitely the glazed goat kid, I had never had kid before, and it was cooked to perfection, wonderfully flavored, I loved it! We asked for...

These are the few ingredients for an assured success! The dining room (recently renewed) is a profusion of design, luxurious ditails wisely mixed with the traditional and airy atmosphere adorned...

I didn't believe the reviews that rated this restaurant as average. After all how can that be for a Michelin star restaurant. After trying it myself I have to agree with them. The hotel and the restaurant decor is beautiful and pleasant. The service is very professional and attentive. The food presentation is good. However, the food lacks taste. And... More

Interesting ideas but not really astonishing for the category and pricing. Other 4 seasons so much better. Staff stressed and lacking spontaneity, considering the summer mood. It's been much better in the past.
