I use to cone here when in Genoa. Today I really enjoyed the local baby fishes called "Rossetti" and the sweet Baccalà Morro. Great lunch!

This restaurant is my favorite when I go to Genova to visit my old father. You can feel the privacy and attention to details. The dishes are exceptionally prepared and you can always find seasonal dishes outside of the menu. If you follow the recommendations of the professional waiters you will be delighted.

First time in Genoa and invited here by a group of colleagues. We had a set menu and although not everything was to my personal taste, the meal was very good. The monk fish was the exception- it was tough, yes really, and tasteless. The pesto lasagna was excellent. The staff was extremely good and although the whole place was... More

Formal, elegant , attentive service. Food is just excellent whatever you go for, from the focaccia to the fish passing through the pasta. It's one of the best in town. I keep going back and quality is always top.

Elegant restaurant with very attentive staff. The pasta was delicious and the fish the best we've ever had. Would go back to Genoa just to eat here again. We were taken but this is expensive.

Nice food overall but probably avoid the desert We had dinner at Ippogrifo a Tuesday evening during a stay in Genoa. We chose the restaurant by combining evaluations from TripAdvisor with the ranking in the Michelin Guide. Ippogrifo is in a different part of town than our hotel was (don’t really know which part – looked like an industrial/ harbor... More

Lucky enough to be invited here again by generous family. Elegant surroundings, good wine, friendly attentive service and fish to die for - amuse bouche anchovies, crudo followed by al sale, with salad of prawns and ovuli. Light, fresh, beautifully seasoned. Perfection.

We have been there for many times; and each time we have enjoyed a lot. Their service quality is top and food is more than perfect. Wines are quite nice as and lasagne with petso must be definitely tried.

Not being very familiar with Genova, a splendid even if not often included city in a tourist's itinerary, I relied on a friend's advice for a luncheon that had to be not too casual. Ippogrifo is indeed an elegant restaurant, but when the final bill is quite steep elegance is a necessary requisite, certainly not a sufficient one. The three... More
