At the heart of Geneva, at number 21 in rue de la Corraterie, a few steps from the Grand Theatre and the Old Town, La Bottega – Italian Restaurant in Genève fits perfectly with the atmosphere of the place, among the beautiful buildings adorned with stucco and wrought iron stores. With a modern and rational design, the facility was made with recycled materials by Italian architects and craftsmen. Simplicity and minimalism are the watchwords. A warm, welcoming and informal dining experience for gourmets.
Paulo, born in Argentina but to an Italian family, worked professionally across the globe, from Mexico to Peru, in various European countries, and of course in his beloved Italy. In Europe, he had the enviable fortune of working in the finest establishments in many capital cities, displaying the passionate commitment and professionalism that have always made him stand out. Enterprising and resourceful, Paulo loves to experiment with new directions in the kitchen.
The 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.
