The restaurant looks nice from outside with a wonderful terrace. The food was ok even if it was a little bit expensive for the quality but we were totally disappointed because of the bad service, they were slow and very unfriendly. Definitely the service made us regret to have gone to this restaurant.

As we live in Carouge, we used to go there often as we liked the food. But when I noticed that they recycle bread left over on tables and serve it to new customers, I stopped going there. They won't see my face ever again.

Wonderful reception and all. Menu is limited but everything is presented well and looks delicious. The taste treats given to all before the meal are very, very special and vary depending on the season. Once I was disappointed in my choice but that is probably a matter of taste. Portions are very generous. Desserts interesting and very tasty.

FIrst visit (for me). Group of nine for birthday celebration. Perfect from beginning to end. Elegant, welcoming interior. Friendly and efficient service. Artistic presentation of dishes. Excellent food. All courses were delicious. What more could one ask for?!

I've eaten here maybe a dozen times over the years and it has probably been my favourite Italian in Geneva. The food is as good as ever, but the pushiness of the service has been getting worse. There have been three incidents which have left a bit of a taste in the mouth. There was an 'upsell' on the wine... More

I love this restaurant for many reasons! Firstly because it is feels like everything is home made and super fresh: the bread rolls, the tomatos, the little amuse bouches...secondly because it is innovative: the traditional italian dishes are served with orinal twist, like the tomatoes stuffed with burrata served with "tempura salad" ( delicious!). Then, I like it because it... More

Visited at least 10 times. Food is excellent and service is better in the winter than summer. This is, I think, because outside they need to walk more with more tables to serve. Atmosphere is great and quality of food excellent. Did not eat at a better Italian restaurant in Geneva.

I have to agree with the review of a fellow tripadviser (FedericaC83): the food is good, sometimes great. Excellent wine list. Very nice location, in particular if you get a table outdoors in a balmy summer evening. But the service is appalling (unfortunately often in line with Geneva standards), in particular on busy weekend nights. We went there on a... More
