Il Lago offers fine Northern Italian fare, accompanied by exceptional Italian, French and Swiss wines, including an exclusive selection from boutique vineyards. Executive chef Massimiliano Sena’s cuisine pays tribute to his Southern Italian origins, with a salute to the changing seasons. Each plate is a real work of art and the exciting taste combinations are both subtle and flavorsome. Il Lago has one Michelin star.

“The best pairing was definitely Chef Sena’s extremely tender pigeon with coffee and Jerusalem artichoke, served together with the delicate, spicy flavors of the fabulous Acciaiolo 2004: a real symphony of sensations! It was also great to spend some time with all the sommeliers of Geneva.”
