Situated pretty close to the beautiful white train station of Genoa, on a quite hidden narrow street, the restaurant resembles a wine cellar and had excellent wine bottles exhibited on the walls. You should definitely try the pumpkin gnocchi with parmesan and the cheese plate which comes with home made fig jam and honey. Oh, and don't forget about the... More

Got recommended by our hotel. Very tasty food. The appetizer was like a mix of vegetables (awesome). We ate zucchini flowers stuffed with seafood-they were excellent. the service was very good. Highly recommended...

Food-very good authentic Italian; a broad menu for a smaller restaurant Wine-good selection again; we were happy with the house red Atmosphere-good, nothing out of the ordinary; on a Saturday night was full, but the noise level was reasonable Service-good at the typical Italian pace Tips-to be safe, a reservation would be recommended; on Saturday, the first seating was 7:30pm

We chose tuna for me and sea bass for my wife. dishes were beautifully served with a tasty sauce. housemade white wine was not something tasty. much fun we did not get, but for dinner... More

Da Gaia was recommended to me by an Italian work colleague, and very pleased I am to have taken his advice and visited the restaurant. I have booked again for Thursday evening so I can try some of the other dishes! I had a great fish soup with black beans which was an interesting variation on the genre, and Pork... More

We went to Da Gaia for lunch one day. They had English menus but I had noticed a daily menu posted on the window (in Italian) and asked the waitress about that. She could quite clearly describe the options there and we went for the sea bass with aubergine pure and veggies along with half a liter of very nice... More

Most of the dishes were acceptable, but nothing special. The service was pleasant enough but did not make up for the average meal.

Gaia offers very good food, the service is friendly and reasonably fast, prices are quite moderate. The location is on the edge of the oldest part of the city and this is key because in this area there are few decent options. It's not that hard to find, the ally may seem unpleasant but once you get inside it is... More
