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.

We tried out this little trattoria after reading the reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. The pesto was excellent and the house wine just as good. It's not a fancy place and more a little side alley restaurant but it's Great value, highly recommended and would definitely go back !

The trouble with going to Trattoria da Maria on one's first day in Genoa is that you won't want to eat anywhere else! Tucked away in an alley off Via XXV Aprile, a short walk from Piazza Ferrari, it offers impeccable fresh local specialities off a daily-changing menu at low prices, in a bustling but friendly atmosphere. Frequented by local... More

Packed for lunch with locals and well-read tourists, this amazing, long standing (50 plus year) venue seems like an institution in a side lane not far from piazza del Ferrari. Felt like a set price for three courses, started with awesome pasta with pesto and followed by a cold salad of octopus and potatoes. Simply brilliant, simple and local cuisine.... More

Good cheap and cheerful local Ligurian cuisine. I had fantastic ravioli, honestly the best ravioli of my life. Very interesting down-to-earth local's canteen ambience, with construction workers and such. Was the only foreigner there. Limited evening hours, so check ahead. Worth planning your trip around a visit here. Oh, also, cheaper than dirt.

We visited this popular local restaurant a couple of times during our stay in Genoa. It was very rustic with shared wooden tables, hand written menus and simple home style cooking. The food was really delicious and reasonably priced.

Visited Da Maria three times for lunch in one week! Just had to keep going back because the different dishes were delicious and so reasonably priced. Although you could easily miss it from the street and yes its interior is very basic, Da Maria is well worth seeking out. The written menu changes daily and there is a very good... More

Staff were friendly and food was good. Prices were completely reasonable and there was no cover either.

Right in the centre of town near piazza De ferrari and Strada Nuova. Although it looks like a traditional, family run "Trattoria" when inside you get served by a squad of waitresses at the pace of a fast food. Gives just a hint of what Genova used to be in the old times. Portions are just about right, food not... More

We ate here a couple of time while in Genova. Food is tasty with generous portions. Good selection of dishes, which all arrive very quickly. Wait staff are friendly and very helpful. This is not fine dining, but good local food. Would definitely recommend.
