Found this restaurant in a Brandt guide book and thought, as we were in Genoa for the day, we'd look it up. It's on a bit of a shabby side street close to the Porta Antico and looks nothing from the outside but we were warmly welcomed as soon as we walked in. A good mix of tourists and locals... More

I've been recently in this restaurant with my wife and kind (2 and 4 year old) and not only I've found excellent food but also an unexpected (for Liguria) good service. Nice and kind with kids and ready to make us feel comfortable despite the natural difficulties in dining with small babies. We tried the excellent mixed fish appetiser and... More

restaurant is in a side street near the port. The food and wine were excellent and staff very friendly accommodating. I had pasta and beef and both were well cooked and well presented. Seemed to be a mix of tourists and locals which is always a good sign The desserts topped off an excellent meal and it is good value... More

My girlfriend and I were in Genova for one night and we went to "Le mani in pasta", the food was great and the service was excellent. You may have to book before going.

Lovely little restaurant with really very good pasta and desserts (could not manage a second course - but they looked good). Recommendations for delicious local wines too. Service was friendly and helpful, menu in English available.

I was very excited when I walked in, the place looked beautiful and the staff friendly and welcoming. My family and I ordered dishes we know very well and were looking forward to taste them as the presentation was stunning. However the food was a huge let down. Tasteless fish and heavy desserts that tasted very bad. We probably have... More

The food was fabulous in this restaurant. I had the steak with mushrooms and my husband had the baked sea ads. Both meals were delicious and the restaurant has a great homely feel. The service was very good and friendly. I can recommend this restaurant to everyone.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a very good quality of food here. We had a cheese platter starter which was very nice and a mixed grill for two that was really good. The mixed grill had some great steak and lamb. Waiting staff were nice but made some mistakes which I felt was a little bad since there were only... More

The food was OK and service was nice but not to Italian standard. It's a nice place but we spent quite some time waiting for food and then they forgot to cook my meal anyway so I was waiting even longer and ended up eating after others almost finished their food.

Thank Radim S
