Located on a delightful little piazza in the historic center, this restaurant serves up an easy and cheap lunch. There are many different choices, from pasta to meat to salad. Everything seems house-made; it's not overly fancy (thank god!), just good, basic home cooking with some interesting twists. Definitely worthwhile if you're in the area.

Good draft beer, very good wines and delicious desserts! We... More

Well, this was a discovery: the food is simple yet innovative, the price is very good and the service very friendly. In fact we liked it so much we went twice in the same... More

Small friendly and relaxed bistro of no more than ten tables, tucked away in the backstreets of Genova. Handwritten daily menu of specials, not too long, but who needs 100's of choices when the food is this good. Very reasonably priced traditional Italian fare, beer on tap and excellent selection of wines. The crowd seem to be a relaxed, local,... More
