La Favola is a delightful picturesque family run restaurant in Old Town Geneva that features dishes from Ticino, the Italian speaking part of the country. The bi-level restaurant seats only 35 people and is often filled to capacity with business people on lunches and romantic duos or epicureans on the hunt for authentic Italian cuisine in the evenings. The décor is rustic yet chic and as is the food that come from recipes handed down from generation to generation but is enhanced and presented in a modern way. The menu changes as often as the season but some of the favourite entries include vitello tonnato, ravioli, Milanese risotto, Sicilian style spaghettini, and truffled beef carpaccio.
Caveat - a steep spiral staircase leads to the 2nd floor dining area so avoid wearing heals ladies. Also, they do not accept credit cards so bring your wallets with bills. Open on weekends and closed on weekdays, La Favola serves lunch from noon ‘til 2 PM and dinner from 7-10 PM.
