A Person Has To Eat
Before taking on the town, grab a bite at one of the hotel’s restaurants — Il Vero serves authentic Italian with truly outstanding espresso for those similarly addicted to caffeine; or head over the Pont du Mont-Blanc, and into the heart of Old Town to visit a more modest Tuscan-style Italian eatery, La
Favola (rue Jean-Calvin 15, 1204 Genève). In this cozy, cheerful little restaurant close to St Peter’s Cathedral, you will find melt-in-your-mouth braised beef ravioli with truffles, Barolo and parmesan, as well as tender osso bucco with risotto “Milanese” and saffron.
Prices at La Favola range from CHF 25 for a starter to CHF 62 for the rack of lamb main course, but if you order the Plat du jour (which I highly recommend), the daily starter, entrée and dessert will only cost you CHF 35.
