I came here for a business dinner. This is located in Kempinski Hotel, on the second floor. It is apparently quite a new restaurant. The room is big, overlooking the lake. It was a Monday night, so not busy at all. The service was polite, and efficient. The food was good. Very nice burrata for the starter, and then I... More

The place is nice in the Kempinsky Hotel, the service excellent! The Chef is certainly doing his best as it was the case for some homemade ravioli with truffles we tried. The other plates are good but lack some peps, the little extra + that would make it different ! The presentation was well executed and the quality of the... More

The quality of the brunch here is excellent from the poached salmon to the rosemary/lemon infused chicken and oven roasted sea bass to the beautiful array of desserts and cheeses. For those wanting more of a breakfast, there is still a lot of choice. Some people might complain about the price but the quality is sublime.

This is definitely becoming one of my favorite restaurants in Geneva. Food is delicious and with quite big portions, service is also always particularly good.

The Head Waiter in Il Vero is superb! I know his name begins with “F” but I cannot recall the full spelling. He is outstanding at making guests feel extremely welcome and well attended and he clearly runs his staff in this manner because they all are friendly and professional. We dined here twice and breakfasted also on the al... More

Dined in the terasse in a beautiful and war night. Excellent service and food. Risotto is very good and the pannacotta a no miss. very low value for money but that can be forgotten if dining on the terasse.

It's obviously this restaurant needs help: well-trained, polite, efficient help. Apply within. I am sure the suffering Italian-French manager will be happy to hire some competent wait staff. He was the only one preventing a worse rating for this Italian eatery in the Kempinski. The balcony seats offer a view of the Jet d'Eau. The food was pleasing, there's a... More
