Good quality and fair price

Very good traditional family restaurant. Owner is from Liguria and the food reflects the traditions of this Italian region. Excellent pesto. Stefania (owner) is friendly and lovely. Very good atmosphere.

We were welcomed with a lovely smile and enjoyed the excellent meat and pasta dishes. Our son loved all the home-made drawings on the wall and even contributed a rather large dragon to the collection. The lady of the house very kindly held on to a drawing pad he had left behind and let us in outside of opening hours... More

The food was very good, and Stefania was lovely with us. Welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Greenest pesto I've ever seen and delicious too!

As others have noted, Stefania is very welcoming and makes you feel happy to have chosen her restaurant. Eight of us ate a wide range from pizzas to many different pastas to main courses laced with fresh porcini mushrooms. All excellent! If you like pesto then Stefania prepares it in best Genoan style - delicious.

We have eaten here a number of time and each time they make us feel like family. The lady of the house and her son run a typical Italian restaurant with great food and atmosphere. Right off the main square it is easy to find. Good selection of food and wine even with little English skill you will feel right... More

I was taken to this wonderful restaurant by my Italian friend who lives in the pretty town of Tolentino. We had a lovely lunch, the highlight of which was the superb ravioli made by hand by the extremely friendly and welcoming proprietess, Stefania. I was told that they source the basil to make the fantastic pesto sauce from Liguria as... More

Absolutely endorse what others have said about this restaurant/pizzeria in the charming Marche town of Tolentino. The walls are covered with doodles harvested from the paper table-cloths, so if you're artistic/poetic give it a go. The welcome, personal attention and personality of Stefania is wonderful. Typical Italian cuisine with all the usual, but beautifully cooked, presented and served. Highly recommendedOne... More

Everything is delicious at Genovese, but the pasta is what keeps me coming back anytime I'm in the lovely town of Tolentino. That of course, along with the indomitable hospitality of Stefania-- the Italian mother you always wanted. The atmosphere is casual but captivating, with walls full of drawings and photos from the many lucky visitors who have passed through... More

She had us at "Buon Giorno", and we almost never make a visit to Le Marche without a visit to Stefania at Buongustaio "La Genovese". We own a home about an hour away from Tolentino, and for the past 7 years, we have made it a point to visit to this beautiful and quite chic town. Although we love the... More
