This is my 3rd time at this restaurant and I absolutely love it. It is systematically and consistently fresh and delicious. The pasta dishes, fish, and seafood are beyond delicious. This is what real Italian food should be like. I especially love the swordfish with capers, black olives, and pine nuts. The staff are very friendly, especially Mauricio and his... More

it was 7 of us, so I had the chance to taste different dishes. everything was more than good. above all, I'd suggest to try the "fritto imperiale", one of the best fried seafood that I've ever tasted. Portions are very generous, so be careful. Nice and kind service (not the fastest, but the place is nice, so did'n "suffer").... More

If you're looking for fresh seafood in Genova, you should seriously consider this restaurant as a destination. I was there for lunch on a Saturday and had some of the freshest fish I've had in Italy. They have all kinds of seafood dishes, by they fried, grilled, or steamed. Service is typical Italian so don't be timid if you've waited... More

Excellent service, reservation is must! Owner is great man, very friendly stuff. Food...... Whatever you choose you will not make an mistake. Not very big menu (IMHO very clever point), but great choice of traditional pastas, veggie, meat and fish dishes. Ask for house dessert, you will not make an mistake!

I visited the Osteria from an advice of a friend. Dishes are authentic as the original recipe, stoccafisso accomodato is the same as my mother does, and the prices are in range with the place for a first dish about 10€ and second around 16€ except the fritto misto imperiale 22€ but is totally worth it. Service is polite and... More

After reading the comments on this place, decided to visit. Since, we did not have a reservation we arrived early to the restaurant. The owner asked us to wait for a couple of minutes, and asked us if we didn´t mind to eat early and also to leave before the table was already booked (21h). It was the only night... More

I was with my darling this time and not alone so we ordered from the blackboard menu a carpaccio of raw fish and a... More

We reserved a table (thank God) when we arrived at 8.30 pm ,there were three families in the door . The owner kindly refused them as they had no reservation . He came to our table and advised us choosing the dishes. (In Italian ) the only menu was hanged on the wall and it was written in Italian. We... More

Several dishes all very tasty. I likes a lot the home made raviolis. There is a large selection of wines. However service was very slow.

Had the opportunity to have lunch here once; first time we went to get some lunch the restaurant was completely full (which, as we were told, goes for every evening, so be sure to make your reservations !!). The second time though we were lucky, on tuesday afternoon the place was not crowded. Very friendly and lively atmosphere, great bread,... More
