Small and intimate downstairs (shared tables is the norm.) whilst upstairs is air-conditioned and can seat 170! The food is best described as rustic, but the quality is excellent and the service is great.

10€ menu with drink 2 dishes and desert, and plus the food and the wine are good. It's hard to understand the menu because of the handwriting but just ask the waitress she will help you. Delicious food

This is the place to come if you're on a budget and want great local food in a local bustling environment. During our week in Genoa we ate in some of the best restaurants the city can offer, but Trattoria da Maria is the one...More

Found this by accident whilst looking for something more upmarket. We were enticed in by the heaving restaurant at just 7.45, which is early to eat by Italian standards. Upstairs has dozens more tables. It's noisy, its scruffy, its fast and the menu is practically...More

Hidden away up a side street near Ferrara Metro, I enjoyed a delicious bean soup, escalope Milanese, water and wine fore 11 euros. Agreeable local company.
