During a visit to a friend in Genova, I had the pleasure to eat close to the old Port. I had a very pleasant evening with wonderful food and a very warm welcome from the owner. I suggest this place to the lovers of fresh fish and see. The view is not exceptional but close by there is also the... More

When you come across a city like Genova with a very big seafront the only think you should think about is "where to eat that fish!". In this restaurant you can do it at a very affordable price. The location on the harbour is really good, and the food quality also. The English level of the employees does not allow... More

We looked for somewhere close to our hotel to eat. It was waterside, and the beer was cold. The pasta was just ok. My daughter got spaghetti with fish and ended up with a sardine spaghetti, not the fresh fish of the day she was expecting. My pasta was fine and enough that we both could share.

The restaurant is set right in the habour of Genoa. The staff were super attentive and helpful. They went through the menue with us when there we things we could not translate. The portions were large, well cooked and well presented. The bill was very much less than one would expect to pay in that type of setting with that... More

Make sure you know what you're ordering! The menu is not in English and the workers didn't know much English either. I ordered a pasta dish with that the waitress said had mixed fish in it, when the dish came it had sardines, which I don't like. I ended up just eating the bread, which was good! My mom got... More

Amazing food, even that we arrived late, still they offered us food knowing that the kitchen was about to be closed. The seafood and the pasta where delicious, the crostata con fruito di bosco Was perfect. Love it, love the hospitality and the limoncello was on the house.

I recently had lunch at Il Brigantino, which is conveniently located next to my hotel, NH Marina. This restaurant, like many in Italy, offer a special daily menu during the lunch hour, with reasonable prices. While the weather wasn't sunny, I ate outdoors. Dining is very casual. Tables were set with paper placemats, napkins and packaged utensils. The service was... More

Went here and the food was ok, however the staff appear to deliberately mislead the English. Menu was hand written so when you asked about anything he wrote numbers on his pad which you assumed was the price! When the bill came out we were completely shocked and all of a sudden he didn't understand a word of English when... More
