Recommended to us by our hotel, we weren't disappointed. Nothing out of the ordinary but a very pleasant evening. Huge starters, stand out dish was octopus with potatoes. Our son won the main course prize - the trofie with pesto were delicious as you might expect in Genova. Ice cream was home-made, excellent coffee and the comp limoncello was a... More

August 2014 was testing us in the city of Genova, most of the restaurants were closed due to the holidays. This made it almost impossible to find a good restaurant that was serving. The night before, there was still a line in front of Vegia Zena at 22.30 hours. We needed to go on time now, and we just were.... More

I always go to Vegia Zena on my yearly trips to Genoa. The food is consistently excellent (though I would recommend the fish over the meats--Italian cuisine is regional), and the service is courteous. I always order the Branzino (or Orata) alla Ligure, though pretty much anything else is just as delicious. Prices are reasonable though not cheap, but what... More

We found this restaurant using Trip Advisor. It opened for dinner at 7pm. All our meals - all seafood were great. We only had main dishes and dessert and all were well cooked and tasted delicious. The wait staff were friendly and helpful and very accommodating for our pram and three young children. Would recommend this restaurant if visiting Genoa... More

I read the reviews and decided to fit this place into our itinerary. It's in a good location, and they take reservations. They are closed on Mondays, but open from 9a-midnight. Honestly, I was unsure how I felt about the place, even after dinner time. ATMOSPHERE: The walls seemed like they had been artificially fabricated to look like a stucco... More

We were takin here by family in Genoa. What a wonderful find. The pesto was the best I have ever had and I order it a lot in Liguria on the five visits I have had here over the past few years. I also go the ligurian style fish which was the best fish dish I had on the trip... More

It's quite simple, if you love seafood....go there. Have the seafood "soup". Decide for yourself what you'd call it but don't worry that it won't be enough. The only thing stopping us from going there again is that our hotel recommended another restaurant and, if it's good as this one, we have to try it.
