Sunlight streaming through large windows, impeccable service, and seasonal Italian fare make this corner bistro a bright addition to the Genevois dining scene. Diners of all stripes choose between dark maroon banquettes and cherry-colored chairs for plates of homemade pastas, including the pillowy ravioli stuffed with eggplant and topped an airy burrata. Among the hearty favorites are veal picatta and tender filet de boeuf in a three-pepper sauce. The Italian-heavy cellar includes nearly 30 wines by the glass every season. There's a wraparound sidewalk terrace surrounded by large shrubs for added privacy on the busy street.
