Nice location,old fashioned but very charming,but not up to his past reputation. The staff was very kind. Very tiny portions and high prices. Good cuisine but not exceptional. Good wines,especially Pigato.

It's very difficult to describe this place, so I would only say they will get you to excellence. Best in Italy.

One of the best restaurants I'been to during my stay in Italy. Went there twice during the week I visited Genova. Don't miss the mandilli al pesto. Fabulous! And the service great.

Visited this wonderful place with a friend for a late dinner, had the best sea food in a lifetime, best friendly service anyone can ask for!! Ask for "Giovani" he's the host that made our experience twice as happy and pleasant.

Way too expensive for what you eat: when you have a fish filet for 30€ without seeing the fish where it is coming from, it is not fair. Also the cuisine is not modern: very classic and not so exiting compare to modern chefs !...More

This restaurant should be better given the price and its long establishment in a prime location. Nothing was bad about it but the food was nothing special. My pasta with walnuts was good and the service was friendly. Pleasant surroundings but few tables occupied.
