rotten mussels served twice

We ate in this restaurant twice while in Genoa. The first evening the food was ok, not the best I have ever eaten, and some of the fish was not fresh, but on the whole, being 10 P.M. when we arrived, it was ok. The day after we came back because I had lost my scarf and I hoped I... read more

This was one of the best meals I have eaten. I lived in Italy for a bit and have traveled all over Italy and this was one of my favorite meals. This restaurant is very authentic and the food is amazing and very reasonable. I was with 2 friends and we ordered food to share. One of the dishes was... More

Let me preface this review by saying I've lived in Spain for the last year and eaten at some of the best restaurants in Europe over the last 12 months. Having said that, Le mani in Pasta was an incredible dining experience. If you're looking for authentic Italian, look no further. The service was 10 out of 10 and the... More

For those looking for an authentic pesto pasta, look no further. This restaurant is tiny, with only 1 lady staff with no English language skill at all (we communicated thru sign language so we could get by. But she was very nice and accommodating). All other seafood dishes were not particularly outstanding but the pesto was the best. We've tried... More

Delicious food and great service. I was travelling alone, and looking for local restaurant for pasta, and found this via Tripadvisor, I got the Cuttlefish ink spaghetti with Shrimp ragu, it is amazing, the pasta is al dente, highly recommended.

Excellent food, excellent service. This place has the world's fastest kitchen, I don't know how they do it. I got the seafood linguine, a very large amount of food and very generous amount of shellfish. Near the docks. The staff was very friendly, nice interior. Very moderate prices.

The unassuming exterior belies the quality of the food! Brilliant antipasti - huge portions and interesting home-made dishes (we had a meat one and a fish one, but one would have been enough!) The home-made pasta was fresh and delicious. We also had branzino, simply roasted with rosemary potatoes - it arrived piping hot and was really yummy. The only... More

We visited on a Monday and found many (probably 80%) of restaurants in Genoa to be closed. But this one was open and we decided to give it a try for dinner. It is located in the Porto Antico waterfront area. Service was excellent and the gentleman spoke English very well. We tried the homemade pasta with pesto and squid... More
