I had lunch, they have a lunch menu available. You can also buy to take away. When I was paying I saw when they were preparing a sandwich and looked really yummy! The place is very nice, the staff is kind and fast, the quality of food is excellent. Better to reserve because is always full. The price goes according... More

After shopping in the hidden gem Alptitude for some cute souveniers, I asked for a recommendation for a late lunch place. The sweet salesclerk gave me a card that had a small map for Il Monte Bianco restaurant. In excellent English she said it's one of the best in the city for a sandwich and warned me not to be...

I love this place and it's super-friendly staff. This is the place to lunch near the train station. If you want to sit in their lunch meet the need of any palette and "hand-down" they have the best baguette sandwiches in town with lots of delicious ingredients to choose from. I should also add that their sandwiches are very good... More

Small place in Geneva but really good food! The menu is a bit overpriced but the product are really good, and you really taste it comes from Italy! Sandwiches are good too even if the bread can be better to match with the quality of the rest!

I've been going there many times for a sandwich. I've never eaten there in the restaurant. They have a great choice of sandwiches. Everything is fresh and just good. Again, the best in Geneva!

Funny enough, the two best Italian lunch places in Geneva are next to each-other: Il Monte Bianco and Le Milan next door. Anyway, Il Monte Bianco serves by far the best sandwiches in Geneva and perhaps in Switzerland. Freshly cut meat, cheese and traditional fresh Italian toppings. You won't believe how good it is until you try. They also serve... More

Just been there. Had an antipasti plate (with no charcuterie) and a bottle of water. The bill was 38 CHF, I had to ask twice to make sure there was no mistake. For the quality and quantity provided it is just a crazy price. For half the price you can have the same food in at least three sicilian "traiteurs"... More

Second visit today and the restaurant is small but good, the sandwich bar is very Italian as you choose what you put into your sandwich. The brad is fresh and likeiwse for the risotto and pasta in the restaurant. A little loud, but the patrons are fun Worth a visit over lunch
