Good fish in Genova.....

Looks incredible but in a port city like Genova is not easy to eat good fish. Here we have one of the few exceptions....dishes of the genovese tradition served in a simple ways. The price is also average for what you eat. Very simple decoration for a recommendable restaurant

A fabolous restaurant with its food and ambiance. Definitely recommend to get there and eat whatever on the menu. Pasta with pesto was impressive. We had a house wine which was great.

We visited after a recommendation by a local resident and we weren't disappointed. The atmosphere is very nice, the staff really friendly and passionate about their job. The food was exactly how it is supposed to be: we had the fried veggies and fish (crunchy outside, soft inside), a pasta dish (al dente with a sauce rich in flavor and... More

We were treated very well by the staff, one of the waiters explained everything they had on the menu. The food was amazing!! We had mussles as a starter, then fish and in the end dessert. Starters are around 10-15 euro and main courses 14-25 euro. In the end we paid a bit more than other restaurants, but it was... More

It was a little bit difficult for us to find the restaurant because its location is somewhere in the alley. However, we were really glad that we found it! The pasta we had was really delicious and the price was not expensive . Recommend !

Great place to taste typical dishes from Genoa: the food was fresh, properly cooked and well served. We walked out fully satisfied with our meal and, even though it's not the cheapest place, we felt the price was right for it. To give some examples, pasta with pesto alla genovese was priced 10 euros and the "royal mixed fry" (a... More

The food here was simply fantastic. The restaurant was busy by 9pm and we were glad we had a reservation. Great atmosphere, felt very authentic with lots of Italians eating all around us. The servers were incredibly friendly and were able to translate the whole menu for us and offer us recommendations. The food was incredibly fresh and the seafood... More

The food was superb, typical Genovese. Highly recommend the starters, calamari and baccala'. The dessert, latte fritto, was amazing. The staff was cheerful and very helpful. Out of the 5 nights we stayed in Genova, we eat there twice and definitely go back if we go back to Genova again.
