Unique, unforgettable, unmatched unbelievable unprecedented. If you look for a place where s: your taste sensations will be expanded over unimaginable levels of surprise and pleasure, get there : 'Gran Ristoro' in the ancient historical center of Genoa, just facing the Columbus House.

Gran Ristoro is a piece of the old town history. Despite many other copied the stile this one is remaining the best. Be prepared to wait a bit especially during lunch time, but will be time well spent. I strongly suggest "Bocconcini al tartufo" sandwich, one of my preferred.

That's a little bit funny. 11 th In the trip advisor list but just a small sandwich cafe. The reason is the owner who makes everything - sandwiches, atmosphere and so on.

This place is always packed full of locals. We walked by it for a week working up the nerve to go in, very small and everything is written in Italian. Lots of unique things on display, but the guy behind the counter is awesome, lets you sample, asks what you like and builds you a sandwich. Not sure of all... More

A very small place, so small that is easly to miss, but their sandwiches are hard to forget. This is a defacto historical place: you can't say you have been in Genova if you haven't eat a sandwich here.

They make great sandwiches. Lots of different local meat and cheese to choose from. Tiny little place where lots of locals go for food so expect lines. Worth waiting for!

A bit intimidating when you first walk up, lines out the door, no room to stand anywhere. Given my poor Italian I basically told the guy to make his favorite. It was out of this world. Freshest meats you can have, great cheeses. Add a beer or glass of wine and you absolutely get change from a 10 Euro note.... More

You might be waiting for 15 minutes for a sandwich, but the guys are going to make the perfect one, even if you don't speak any italian.
