An elegant restaurant in an attractive house (inhabiting the original tavern of a 1790
gentleman's farm), this is one of the best dining spots in town. There's an atmospheric
small dining room downstairs and several others upstairs, where there's a deck with nice
long views over Geneva. The menu focuses on classic dishes, such as wood-grilled steaks
and chops, chicken parmigiana, fresh lobster, and veal scallopine. The small and
affordably priced wine list includes a number of the Finger Lakes' best. Note that locals
may still refer to the restaurant by its former moniker, 'Pasta Only's.'

PASTA ONLY'S COBBLESTONE RESTAURANT
Combine an historic 1825 farmhouse, classic Italian cooking, and a wood-fired grill and
you come up with an exceptional dining experience. When the owners of the successful
Pasta Only restaurant decided they needed more space, they discovered this lovely old
building with porches, fireplaces and cozy rooms. They bought it and changed the name a
bit but not the quality of the food. It has a lovely garden patio, verandas and several
dining rooms. Seafood comes from Boston, produce from local farmers as much as
possible, and pasta is made fresh daily. Chicken pesto, boscaida Verona, crab cakes, veal
cobblestone and sea bass are just some of the tempting selections.
