    This is a small restaurant but it really is a gem. At the edge of the Old Town, it feels inviting from the first step inside. The staff are very welcoming, the decor is subtle & the food is really good. It's difficult to fault if you're looking for an excellent relaxed evening, where you can enjoy eating & drinking in a setting. And it's easy to have a table conversation to without lots of background noise.

    Amazing food, friendly service, very nice place. We will definitely go back again and again :-) We had a Barolo wine which was at a very reasonable price and was excellent!

    Good Italian, classic rather than contemporary dishes, nothing really original, but on the other hand no surprises. Good service, typical Italian. Disappointing espresso, but some may find it OK. Not cheap, even by Geneva standards.

    Very good restaurant in Old Town. The burrata, pennette, and tagliata were all delicious. Nice service and good Tuscan red wine as well. We sat outside on a small patio, but the inside looked cozy as well, a good place to bring a date.
