Fodor's Review

Lace curtains, embroidered tablecloths, antique silver, collections of teapots and Murano glass, and a vertiginous spiral staircase strike a delicate balance between rustic and fussy in this wood-paneled dollhouse located on the street where Jean Calvin, the Protestant reformer, used to live. The food echoes the decor: part country simple, part city chic. The carpaccio is paper-thin, the pasta homemade, the risotto seasonal, and the tiramisu divine. Regional Swiss and

Italian wines reflect the chef's roots in Turin.
