Fast rising Italian duo Paulo Airaudo and Francesco Gasbarro invite Peruvian Superstar Chef Diego Muñoz to their new restaurant venue in Geneva, where the three chefs create a two-day collaboration dinner extraordinaire.

Friday April 22nd and Saturday April 23rd

La Bottega, the two Italian chefs’ unique joint venture, is rapidly becoming Geneva’s most coveted dining venue after being awarded its first Michelin star just four months after their opening.

Swiftly establishing a firm grip on the Genevan restaurant scene, Paulo and Francesco are determined to make their mark as two chefs re-defining Italian cuisine. Refusing to squeeze their restaurant into a clear-cut mould that churns out homogenous pasta dishes, they are 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.




Next week – Friday April 22nd and Saturday April 23rd, La Bottega kickstarts an ambitious dinner series “The World Comes to Geneva”, with no less than nine collaboration dinners in the remains of 2016 – created in collaboration with Bon Vivant Communications and featuring a variety of different chefs such as Matt Lambert (NYC), Atsushi Tanaka (Paris) and Benoit Dewitte (Belgium).

But the first name on La Bottega’s impressive rooster of collaborating chefs is the globetrotting Peruvian Superstar Diego Muñoz, who in the 6-week European part of his 2016 devoted to culinary exploration through the world’s exciting cuisines and alluring cultures, has accepted the kind invitation from Geneva.


Widely renown as one of the world’s most talented and creative chefs, Diego Muñoz flawlessly executes a complex layering of flavors with extreme attention to detail with an innovative and clean style.

Until very recent Executive Chef at the world renowned Astrid y Gastón at Casa Moreyra in Lima, Peru, since 2012, where he led the restaurant from #42 to current #14 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List and #3 of best Latin American restaurants.

This January Diego Muñoz announced his departure from Astrid y Gastón, instead to devote his 2016 to culinary exploration, adventure and limited time-based projects around the world, with the highest possible culinary value in a melting pot of different cuisines and cultures, and in that way create the formula of the culinary DNA for his future restaurant to be.

During a highly concentrated 2016 Chef Muñoz explores Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East. Read more about this in The New York Times.


This is your chance to experience not only La Bottega’s highly delicate translation of Italian cooking into the historic Swiss/French surroundings, but to also see how the two chefs work with a kitchen defined by Muñoz, whose main style is known to be a high elaborated and experimental storytelling through Peruvian history; a cuisine that throughout recent years has allured diners from all parts of the world to his kitchen in Lima.
