Fantastic local venue

We visited here after reading some decent reviews on Tripadvisor. It is tucked down a side alley and if it wasn't for the neon sign near the alley would have missed it. A very rustic local place, don't expect fine dining, you won't get it here! The menu is hand written in Italian and the staff do... read more

I decided to go to this restaurant with a colleague, after having read some positive reviews. It is a big pity that it is open only for lunch. Anyway, with a tourists' menu you pay 10 euro and you receive two dishes, plus bread and beverage. The restaurant is a tipical trattoria with the interiors of a "poor" tavern but... More

I am alone in Italy and have to eat by myself most of the time. I go to Da Mario often because lots of single people go there to eat. At lunch, it's a workingman's restaurant. If they're busy, they will put you at a table with someone else which is a great way to practice your Italian. A little... More

Find this restaurant off Via Aprile XXV and you are in for a treat at unbelievable prices don't expect fine dining though as it is rustic simple food cooked well. The only menu is a piece of paper on the table totally in Italian. Great experience at lunchtime.

I had the chance to visit this popular local restaurant during my stay in Genoa. It was rustic with shared wooden tables with red plaid clothes, hand written menus and simple yet true home style cooking. Genoese cuisine (pesto, etc.) + reasonable prices.

We went there because of many good reviews on TA. It was good value for money, but we expected more. There was no english menu, but the waiter tried to explain it, although it's hard to remember two pages of menu. We had pasta with genovese pesto (and potatoes and spring beans) and some kind of cheese with paprika (we... More

From ambience to service to cuisine, this place is the real deal. A must-do lunch spot if you're in Genoa - not to mention with super-reasonable prices. The pesto genovese did not disappoint! Among the most memorable quick lunch stops ever.

A real trattoria Genovese with genuine, hearty homemade food. Fantastic! Quick and friendly service, a real taste of Genova in the heart of the historical centre. And unbelievably good value for money! Unmissable!

We visited beautiful Genoa mid-July 2014 with my wife, an ate at Da Maria twice! The food and the service was great. We had spagetti with pesto (traditional Genoa type), veggie dishes, fish with veggies, and tiramisu. All were very tasty. Red wine of the house was very good too. Prices were quite reasonable. İf you are a serious gourmet,... More

Excellent tasty food, really quick and friendly service. Very good value. 3 courses + drink about 13€ Menu in Italian but waitress was really helpful. A lot of local people came into eat whilst we were there which was a good sign. Decor looks a bit like your grandmother's bathroom. Best advised to sit upstairs.
