Our host recommended that place and today noontime we came without reservation - have to wait 15 min and we got a table... Than have to wait 15-20 min somebody to bring a menu which was only on Italian as we have to wait near one hour for main dish. For peak hours - non well calculated the number of... More

My girlfriend and I dropped in here for lunch and we were in love with the food and the ambience. It's not the cheapest restaurant In Genova and it's also not very easy to find it but it's worth the money and the effort ! Enjoy

LOVE THIS PLACE! Literally drove back to Genova and ate there again. Hate the city itself because at the pier people were trying to mug me, but thank god for the cruising by security cars. ALRIGHT THIS PLACE: AMAZING. Good took a little while to make but it is so worth the wait! Everything is LITERALLY on the hand written... More

Very good food and nice personal. Service was extremely nice. The restaurant was complitely full but they opened a table for us. Home made Genova's cooking, grandmother's style. It's fresh to see the staff enjoy what they do. One appetizer, two maincourses, dessert, two glasses of wine and bottle of water for 64 euros. Reservation recommended.

Really loved the atmosphere here. A blackboard with lots of choice - interesting Genovese dishes. Friendly service. A bit rough round the edges but that is what a local place should be.

The food is always good, Ligurian cuisine at its best. Unfortunately waiters can be moody/rude and the place tends to be loud.

Food is barely decent, definitely too expensive for what it really is. Service is underwhelming--we were asked to swap tables in the middle of our meal, and we had to carry all of our plates, glasses, bread basket, etc by ourselves. Not to mention that we had barely finished eating dessert when the waiter explicitly asked us to leave. Avoid... More
