I thoroughly enjoyed cuttlefish followed by steak. The food was prepared with great attention to detail. The service was excellent and the place had a lively and friendly atmosphere.

Arriving at an unknown restaurant without a booking looked initially a problem, but the girl at the desk suggested "prive". OK, turned out be be a very private area upstairs away from the bustle of buffet style food on the ground and first floors. Unfortunately, due to an allergy to cheese, (if anything could be worse in Italy) I had... More

Sometimes I winder if I went to the same restaurant as some of the other reviewers but anyway. Unlike others we chose to eat outside on a warm July evening and the service and food was outstanding. Every dish prepared and presented to Michelin quality. The location is a bit tucked away just off Via Roma but this must be... More

My husband and I were hoping to get a taste of Genoa's Apertivo scene and this place was great! Mounds of meats and cheese, veggies, many types of focaccias and a few other things I couldn't identify but we're very popular. Drinks were well made too. Quite wonderful.

This restaurant is really two restaurants under the same roof - the main rooms downstairs and on the first floor are ultra modern and popular for aperitifs and tapas - very fashionable with young Italians these days. But the place to be if you really like food, is the secret room upstairs behind the red curtain, a restaurant within a... More

The place has a long and very good cocktail menu. Aperitivo was better than most of which I have tried in Italy. They even serve oysters -though not the best kind but still OK. The crowd is good but a bit noisy.

Wow.....in an old world square this modern restaurant buzzes, but.......when we turned up for our reservation we were taken upstairs. Our initial slight disappointment was replaced by curiosity when we were escorted into a cloakroom. As neither of us were wearing coats we were surprised Ben more so when the waitress knocked on a small wooden door which was opened... More

Don't rely on Tripadvisor's subset of restaurants around Piazza de Ferrari. It was set up by someone who is geographically challenged or has never been to Genoa. With tickets to the opera for a Saturday matinee we were looking for a quality and leisurely lunch nearby Teatro Carlo Felice. By luck and/or instinct we wandered into Mua and it turned... More

We chose Mua as it was very close to our hotel and had good reviews. We entered the place thinking we'd be dining in the modern main room. But we were taken upstairs. Well I thought they had another room upstairs as the one we had just crossed looked quite packed. But no we were taken to the cloakroom?!?!!??? We... More
