Wow! This small but exceptional French Cuisine restaurant is a real joy for the discerning palate! It is located at the bottom of the old quarter where it meets the bustling town centre.

The portions are just right and well balanced between the starters, the main and dessert courses. The food is so fresh and tasty. In addition, they have really high quality house wines through to the more expensive varieties.

When you are next in Geneva, please try this hidden gem! You will not be disappointed.

This delightfull resaurant is easily overlooked as you walk to/from the old quarter, but if you miss it then you would miss a gem. It is not cheap but the food, the atmosphere and the experience is not to be missed. The menu is not extensive but everything on it is absolutely first quality and the flavours blend together in very subtle ways. Portions are more than enough to allow you to appreciate and enjoy your meal. The staff are very attentive but not intrusive. A definite destnation for foodies

We had a part of 8 people - had red and white wines and the food was amazing. Presentation was on point and flavors amazing. Food in Switzerland is expensive. Ompared to the USA but this was well worth it. Everything is made to order and the attention to the platin detail was a plus.

Deserts are great and the candied almonds after your meal are the best.

We just came back from our second dinner at the Finestra: small but tempting menu. Quick and amiable service. However rather smallish portions for the antipasti and primi piatti. If yôu're very hungry, you might need the full three course dinner, meaning antipasti, pasta then meat/fish. Nice selection of Italian wine, especially the red Planeta, a marvel!
We will come back but it's not our favorite Italian, however it is central....
