Small, intimate, delicious and welcoming, this is the best Itlain in Geneva. A recent visit to Robertos reminded me how La finestra is so much superior in terms of quality of food, service and price. La Finestra ia first class

Had one of the very best lunches today...with excellent service of the Portuguese/Italian owner and her brother. Truly a destination not to be missed, when visiting Geneva. Business or a romantic outing. Excellent house red wine, and a touch of caramelized almonds with the coffee.

Everything was excellent. The atmosphere leads you to old fashioned Italian classic restaurant. The staff is really polite and pleasant. I tried carpazzio red tone with pekorino. It was really tasteful. For main pasta with scampi and cream. And dessert panacota. All were excellent. Prices are high but certainly I will visit it again

Pasta arrived too fast, sauce was minimal/pasta had gone hard and it felt like it had been sitting drying whilst we finished our starters. How can you get that wrong as an Italian restaurant?! Tiramisu was... More

My husband was craving great Italian food. And this beautiful family run restaurant did not disappoint. The beef carpaccio with shaved truffles almost brought him to tears! He was all in for truffles this night so he also had the homemade ravioli with a truffle cream sauce. No joke- he almost lickedthe plate! I had artichoke with shrimp as an... More

I've been there several times and the food has always been delicious, beautifully decorated, the service personalized. You feel like in Italy in spite of being nice the centre of Geneva.

My wife has the lamb & I'm suppose to have the sea bass but end up having tuna by mistake because of language problem. Both dishes turned up to be fantastic.

A small, intimate restaurant serving excellent Italian food and wine. The truffle pasta is the best in town - if it's not on the menu ask for it, you wont be disappointed!
