La Finestra is a very charming, elegant place. The service was great and attentive
We had a very good dinner , we highly recommend the chocolate tarte at the end!

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.

Everything was excellent. The atmosphere leads you to old fashioned Italian classic restaurant. The staff is really polite and pleasant. I tried carpazzio red tone with pekorino. It was really tasteful. For main pasta with scampi and cream. And dessert panacota. All were excellent. Prices are high but certainly I will visit it again

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 finished our starters. How can you get that wrong as an Italian restaurant?!

Tiramisu was average at best.

Service was warm and friendly. Ambiance is lovely. But that's not enough for the price tag (>300 chf for two due to truffle season!) - its the food that disappoints.
