    Excellent food and very nice service. Though believe it is better to sit in 1st rather than ground floor.

    La Favola is my favorite restaurant in Geneva. Everything about it is wonderful -- Food, service, atmosphere -- all just divine.

    Starters were great, especially the grilled polenta and the buffala, however the main courses were average quality and extremely overpriced for that quality.

    Had not been to La Favola for about 15 years and found it again at the suggestion of a friend. Very “ sympathique” atmosphere in this small restaurant located in a charming street in the old city. Very decent, reasonably priced italian dishes . Excellent alternative to the louder, showier Italian restaurants in town .

    Given the excellent reviews, I expected better. However, I am demanding: my husband is Tuscan and we are often in Northern Italy - I expected food of the same quality. The wine was excellent.

    Extremely expensive even for GVA. Main dish of a small duck leg with a few grilled vegetables hard to chew. Around 50chf!!! Whaaaat?!?! I left the restaurant hungry. Also the place is small and the noise from people talking is terrible. I couldn’t hear my friend on other side of the table. Will never return!

    Myself and my flight crew have been here a number of times. Fantastic food. Wonderful service. Can’t recommend the Tortelini Burrata and Panna Cotta enough. Excellent options. The filet of beef is excellent as well. The Pinot noir selection was great as well.

    Excellent food, good wine, attentive service, charming ambiance. Highly recommended for quality. Price on the high side, could be brought down a bit I think.
