Antica Osteria del Bai is a historic restaurant overlooking the sea at the south end of Genoa. It is worth a detour if you are anywhere nearby. Its specialty is classic Ligurian coast seafood. It is casually elegant and unpretentious, with charming waiters in dinner jackets. The food is fresh and superbly conceived and prepared, from warm seafood salad with... More

Very nice and comfortable place near the seaside, great seafood and great wine. Just a bit too serious the crew, but suitable with a top class restaurant. The check is top class too.

A series of mishaps led us to this restaurant. From the outside it looks like a dump, so what sticker shock once inside! I didn't have my guidebook with me and had no idea this place was (in?)famous!
