Il Lago is a beautiful restaurant serving Italian fine food. The venue has nice paintings and antique furniture. We had the business lunch consisting of home made ravioli, sea bass and a variety of tiramisu as a dessert. They have a huge wine list.

I just love this place, it's one of my favorite so far... it's a bit pricey but the food is good so it's worth it.

What a pleasant experience! Top Four Seasons service, tasty plates from perfect Lobster Risotto, to melting ricotta raviolis, amazing langoustine with its veggies... The sommelier and director of the restaurant is a real master at work, all the choices are perfect! We shall go back

With 5 others I had lobster Risotto and it was so flavorful and an amazing gastronomic treat. The beef soup was a little to strong for my taste. I loved everything the attention to details and the elegant decor not stiff. My dinner companions had pasta and duck all of them were raving praise. I will definitely come back before... More

Snobbish over-rated restaurant. Surprising that a Four Seasons hotel would maintain such a mediocre restaurant within its walls. Thank goodness there is a superb Japanese restaurant upstairs. Difficult to believe but the simple broth with tortellini was difficult to swallow. Perhaps the most annoying feature is the pretentiousness of the waiters who interrupt a conversation to describe in great verbose... More

The Michelin Guide awarded a coveted star to this unforgettable restaurant, summarizing their experience in these glowing terms: "Offering a taste of Italy on Lake Geneva, this restaurant combines a chic decor (superb pilasters and paintings) with elegant Italian cuisine which is light, subtle and fragrant. A delightful dining experience!" I can only agree with them! I have had lunch... More

Quality food up to hotel standard, nothing more special to remember about. Service quality is up to hotel standard but cold, not exceed expectation and nothing to remember about. The interior of the restaurant was so beautiful and it's the only thing we remember out of it. Price wise is the Four Season standard. Will not go back.

Gourmet restaurant with excellent food and service. Best lunch venue in Geneva. Try the St. Pierre fish dish.

Good quality but very expensive. Some tables with a view over the Rhone. Professional service and extensive wine list. Some doubts about the digestive (bottle not shown). A little more imagination and character is suggested.
