This is a small restaurant, specialising in sea food, with local produce, carefully selected and chosen. The chef really wants you to try it all and will prepare a single dish for the table to try. The whole team seem to care enormously about what they are producing, which makes for a special evening. We were a group of five... More

There are a few seafoods I don't care for, but when the chef comes around to explain his creations and options, and one choice is to trust him to make some of his best stuff ... Just go with it. I am glad i did, this was as good asit gets when dining out. This isn't a chef coming up... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of eating here recently. And it was pure pleasure. It's a small restaurant down a little lane just off a main square and looks like nothing much from the outside. But if you go in the welcome is warm and homely. The food, from starter through pasta was superb. In fact it was... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Voltalacarte on our first night in Genoa. We liked the sound of the previous trip advisor reviews and were fortunate to get a last minute table. On this particular evening there was a special degustation menu featuring a local fish, Ricciola (Amberjack in English). The chef was very kind to... More

My boyfriend and I had the most amazing dinner in Genoa last night. The owner, who is the chef, is also the host, and waiter. He is absolutely amazing in every way. The menu changes weekly (we think), they speak good enough English. THE FOOD IS OUTSTANDING. We ate a lot of seafood which was fresh, delicious, and so good... More

I've had this place bookmarked forever and been wanting to stop by, and finally made it for dinner. Let me tell you, "good" definitely doesn't do it justice. Instantly one of my top favorites in the entire city. Solid options for meal, side dishes, breads, drinks, etc. In short, it's everything the ultimate meal experience should be. Coupled with the...

We found this great restaurant on trip advisor. Don't be put off by the shabby exterior, the food and service were first class. We had the Tasting menu and the chef came out to explain each course and clearly took his food very seriously. All courses were fish which is hardly surprising being on the coast. Our only criticism was... More

Found this gem through Tripadvisor and very glad we went there. It's a relatively small restaurant, set in a (former) small home. They only have 5 or 6 tables, and all were occupied all the time! We took the fixed menu which was a masterly crafted, whopping 7-course adventure of the senses, all with fresh ingredients. The staff was very... More

Chef Maurizio is a genius at sourcing the very best ingredients and treating them with love and respect to create exquisite and exciting dishes. We ate at his restaurant twice while in Genoa and were as pleased the second time as the first, if not more so. The prices are not cheap, but for the best-quality ingredients, even in Italy,... More
