My wife and I came across this place while seeking a dinner location in old Geneva town. A little off the main square with the more touristy standard fare, this was a great find for one to try local wines (which Geneva has many fine ones) and have a decent bite.

Big bowls of pasta or chicken in all kind of sauces! A nice, cosy place where you can enjoy a nice evening. Wine is good as well and home made desserts are worth while. Service is good and attentive. A nice break in the heart of the old town of Geneva.
