Great food

I have read several neg reviews from this place. I have eaten there 4 or 5 times. Every time the food was good and the staff overly friendly. Great location and worth the trip

Came with my family here, hadn't booked and was lucky to get a table. The owner spoke great English and was very friendly, as were the waitresses, food was of a really high standard and very well cooked, the prices were very reasonable. It is not the easiest place to find but it was nice to find a quieter spot... More

What to say... What a nice surprise, the quality of the food is great,(fish was fresh, wine superb, portion on the big side) the ambient fits the character of the city, the service was also in the genovese style... Perfect! I totally suggest this place!

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... 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
