Very nice restaurant. You can enjoy a nice view of Genova from the the upper terrace (assuming no fog). Food is quite good and with a prime star service. Price is honest in comparison to the quality and it was well presented. The travel to the restaurant can be made using a funicular to the Righi upland.

Came here for their Christmas lunch set menu -- a fab experience. Excluding dessert, the entire menu was fish based and every bite was delightful. Service was professional and prompt. We were seated on the enclosed terrace with its terrific view of the city and the bay. All in all, I can highly recommend this place and can't wait to... More

At the top of a funicular with magnificent views and good walks around. The restaurant was a great surprise, the welcome warm and the seafood salad one of the best we have ever had. We had a Sunday lunch with a difference - don't come here for roast beef and Yorkshires! Packed and popular with locals and tourists.

This restaurant is a few paces from the top station of the Righi funicular railway, so it feels special before you enter the restaurant. We went on a Sunday lunchtime when there was an even mix of tourists and locals out for Sunday lunch. There is a huge menu of pizzas, foccacia and farinata and a smaller and more expensive... More

Pizza and farinata are nice. Panoramic views are excellent and the restaurant is easily accessible from town center via cable-car. However, service is slow to say the least; orders are usually forgotten or not taken care of. 20 minutes after being repeatedly assured that the bill was coming, I got up and was told that "of course, the bill is...

we had a wedding reception here for 90 people from Italy and England. The food was amazing, everything fresh, delicious and served beautifully. The staff was incomparable. So helpful, kind, efficient and fun. They made the whole evening go smoothly. The owner Lucca was wonderful. No request went unfulfilled. Simone, Allesandro, Gloria and the rest were wonderful. We have since... More

As we got this restaurant recommended for the great view, I called to reserve a table on the terrace with the view! Upon arrival we got seated in the first room on a table with absolutely no view at all! We asked the lady at the entrance who appeared to manage the tables 2 times for a table on the... More
