Good and friendly service. Not very cosy environment. (half of the restaurant has a view to the kitchen and basement stairs...). Very few dishes and not an impressive table decoration. I certainly will not visit again.

Deuxième soiree dans ce petit Resto et... que du bonheur. L accueil du patron est top, sourire et humour au rdv. L ambiance est cosy, lumières tamisées et pierres apparentes. Vraiment chouette. La cuisine... un délice vraiment, vous en aurez plein vos papilles. Le chef eSt meme venu nous faire goûter des plats pour que mon fils 10 ans, choisisse un plat qui lui plaise. On sent qu il est passionné ! Vraiment un BEau rdv et une très jolie adresse à ne pas manquer.

Bistrot Laz Nillo is my favorite area restaurant. A unique menu, great food and friendly accommodating service.... it is all here. Also appreciated is the respect shown for the food chain, with photos of the restaurant's key suppliers prominently displayed. For lunch or dinner, go and enjoy!

This was a great little find! The location doesn't lead you to expect such fine cuisine and such a great atmosphere. The service was well-paced and friendly, the explanations of the different dishes were informative with a touch of humour, and the price was right (for Geneva). Definitely worth the visit!
