I have eaten in hundreds of Italian restaurants around the world and this place is one of the very best, in or outside of Italy! Particularly the pasta and the pistachio tiramisu!

Truly the best Italian food you can find in Geneva. Fantastic vitello tonato, carpaccio, truffle pasta and pasta with tomato and basil. Make sure you try tiramisu with pistachios! Amazing chef and manager. An absolute must!!!
