Food was excellent. We ate seafood risotto and mixed fried fish, both were excellent. We needed to wait just a little time, and were totally happy when the meals came.

Had late lunch here. We ordered appetizers to share, then pasta dishes, and desserts. I remember that all the food was very tasty, and the sea food pasta with tomatoes was incredible - so much mussels, shrimps and crayfish! We had simple red wine, also good. Good service, and good price! When I return to the Italian riviere I would... More

We had lunch here because it was well reviewed on TripAdvisor, and deservedly so. We had seafood pasta, grilled swordfish; beef in mushroom sauce, and sliced tuna with veggies. All delicious. The last item in particular, was an unusual but pleasant surprise because it featured seared tuna that was still pink inside (rather like Japanese style), layered with julienned carrots... More

We found this place by accident last year when returning from a cruise. It's down a dark alley which could put people off but once you enter the premises it's genuinely fabulous. Finding ourselves once again in Genoa we made sure we looked for this restaurant again in the hope it hadn't changed, happily it's still fabulous. The decor is... More

Trofie Pesto. Polpo con patate. Pansotti con salsa di noci. All dishes we tried were pretty spectacular. The local Ligurian specialties are to die for. Decent prices too.

What a great restaurant. It is a little hard to find if you aren't looking too closely but it is well worth it. We actually found it by accident one day. The food and service is spectacular. Also they speak really good English so it is helpful for anyone out of town.

We went there on Thursday night asking if we can still have a drink as they were one of the few establishments still open in the area. Although the kitchen had already closed and they were clearly wrapping everything up they were very happy to accomodate my girlfriend and I. Being very happy with the service, we decided to go...
