The staff here really make you feel at home, I assume they are from Italy and really hit you with that warm Italian hospitality. The newly fitted pizza oven makes excellent Neapolitan pizza but I would warn about over loading with ingredients- it can get a little soggy. The focaccia selection is vast and all well worth 10chf, I always share mine because there pretty massive- again, less is more to avoid soggy bread. During lunch this place gets packed out but dinner and apero time is very relaxed. Total recommended.

Just popped in here for coffee with my wife.
Fantastic bloke working there, chatty, interesting and really made the place.
Awesome coffee and nice surroundings. Later on when we left they put on free food, if you want stay for drinks and enjoy the evening. Top of the hill, great setting and location.

No doubt it's the best Mozzarella in Geneva. The dishes are classical Italian, following the strict recipes. A bit overpriced, but considering the location and atmosphere ,they can be forgiven.After La Favola has moved to the suburbs, we relocated to La Cantinella for the Italian food in the old town.

Darling little restaurant that only seats 20 in the winter (there is a small patio that seats a few more when the weather is cooperative). Delicious homemade pasta with seasonal ingredients and are full of flavour. Friendly, helpful staff and we were made to feel very welcome. The burrata starter is flown in from Puglia fresh every week and is delicious! Large enough to share as a starter just ask for more grilled vegetables to even it out. A delicious meal and would go back and try another dish.
