Vico Palla

Best sea-food ever! For sure is the best genovese cuisine. Service was excelent and with lots of hints regarding the selection of plates.

We had a lovely range of food, and one of us said the best fish disk ever! Prices reasonable to high side (for our ZAR currency) but warm lovely service, fresh and local food. What more could one ask?

A pure gem "hidden" right in the back streets of Porto Antico. We had lunch and we wanted to try the traditional "alla genovese" cuisine. At the entrance you are striked by the fresh fish and seafood display that makes you wonder what are you going to eat... The menu is presented in an original way on a black board... More

I spent a week in Genova and ate in this place three times. Once was Pansoti (a type of pasta), a mixture of fish and shrimps, and fish with calamari. The three dishes were great, but I found the seafood better than the pasta I tried. I totally recommend the place, it is not meant for tourist but for local... More

When my sister comes and visits in Genoa, she always wants to dine their, so they must be doing something right. However, it's always crowded, service is mediocre at best and as far as typical genoese cuisine is concerned, it is my impression you can find better elsewhere.

The fish just needs to be fresh and to be accompanied by a few genuine ingredients. In this restaurant, in addition to seafood, you can find the traditional Ligurian cuisine at its best. You will need a reservation because the restaurant's reputation is well known.

The place is close to the harbour, but still needs a map to find it. But it is worth to do so. All the dinner was superb. I was quite suspicious how they can be able to manage a "full house", but they made it with acclamation. Pasta with pest genovese was on top. I can easily forget only the... More

It is located just off the ancient old harbor area, now over run by cruise ship tourist shlock. Go a couple blocks in and you are at this wonderful local restaurant well off the tourist track. Excellent local seafood, simply prepared. Don't be in a hurry. This is the opposite of fast food. Very tasty, very well done. Go ahead... More

We had a group of 12. Servers did a great job taking care of us and prepared several dishes that we could pass around family style. Lots of fish on the menu, and it was quite fresh and delicious. Not a fancy setting, and loved the menu alla chalkboard, definitely a home-style feeling with a cool ambiance and great tasting... More
