Established in 1920, The Little Owl Restaurant and Flagstone Pub is said to be Geneva’s oldest continuously operated restaurant and tavern. The Arbizzani family bought the establishment in 1947 and still runs it today. The Little Owl Restaurant offers a variety of appetizers, steak, seafood, salads and sandwiches. Flagstone Pub offers a wide variety of beers on tap. Chris Arbizzani says The Little Owl Restaurant and Flagstone Pub’s unique atmosphere and great, friendly staff set it apart from other restaurants and taverns.

“(Our secret to success has been) quality food, experienced staff and a great casual atmosphere,” he says.
