They say the best wine comes in small bottles. Don't really know if that is true, but the best food does come from a small restaurant in the heart of Geneva. La Finestra is small (so book!) and tables are pretty close to each other...More

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.

Small friendly restaurant with delicious food. The tagliolini with white truffles were amazing. Venison was also cooked really well. Service very attentive.

Maybe expectations were too high after the reviews below. It just did not feel like fabulous Italian cooking, which it should at those prices. Pasta arrived too fast, sauce was minimal/pasta had gone hard and it felt like it had been sitting drying whilst we...More
