Charming ambiance of the local Boheme place. Tasty simple food made in the most traditional home style. Great to have a lunch. Menu on the chalk board in Italian )

We were advised of this place by our B&B host and we were not disappointed. Traditional genovese food I guess. Like nothing we had before....We had prosecco with our fish. Mmmmmm. Service was good and place was full by the time we left. Mostly Italians.

Staff was extremely nice and friendly, definitely helpful explaining the menu items for us Americans. The gnocchi was absolutely delicious. Steak and chips was good too, but would definitely go back just for the gnocchi violet!
