My friends and I ended a long day of meetings with a nice meal at Gina. It is located in the SwissTech Conference Center complex on the EPFL campus. The room is large and high-ceilinged. The service is graciously low-key.
We started with this amuse bouche, ricotta wrapped in a zucchini and served on toast. The zucchini gave just a hint of flavor and texture. Its crispness made a nice contrat with the ricotta.
For my main course, I ordered the gnocci, something that you don't see very often in the US. They were tender, soaked with the flavorful sauce, and perfectly formed. The mushroom sauce was rich but subtle.
And we finished the evening with espresso.
