La Bottega, Francesco Gamberro’s Italian gastronomic adventure is rapidly becoming Geneva’s most coveted dining venue after being awarded their first Michelin star just five months after their opening.
Swiftly establishing a firm grip on the Genevan restaurant scene, Francesco is determined to make their mark as a chef re-defining Italian cuisine. Refusing to squeeze his restaurant into a clear-cut mould that churns out homogenous pasta dishes, he is breaking away from traditional stereotypes and going ‘Italian free-style’.
Situated in one of Geneva’s most venerable and traditional thoroughfares, La Bottega beautifully harmonises with the city’s distinctive ambience, set among wrought-iron signs and stucco building façades. Boasting a modern, efficient design that embodies simplicity and minimalism, the restaurant was built by Italian architects and craftsmen from re-used materials.
The result is a warm, welcoming, and informal atmosphere that promises an creative, fun and delicious culinary experience.
Francesco’s passion for cooking goes back to his very youth, when he started working in various Florentine restaurants. After achieving expertise in his profession, he launched his own restaurant in the residential area of Campo di Marte in Florence.
Francesco focuses his professional philosophy on a spectrum of traditional Italian and Tuscan dishes expressed in a modern language. An impassioned devotion to experimentation and a marriage of the highest-quality ingredients are the hallmarks of chef Gasbarro, along with a profound knowledge of wine that has his main focus at La Bottega.
Francesco Gasberro exclusively offers his gastronomic excellence for lectures, food festivals, consultancy, private dining and exclusive dinner parties.
