The food was delicious, the service impeccable, the atmosphere nice. But the experience can really be summed up by one thing that happened. My fiance was conflicted between two dishes and discussed it with the waiter. The waiter provided insight and ultimately she went with one option. But for... read more

Here the service is pretentious, but not so good - they promise a lot, but then conveniently do not deliver, eg we ordered coffee twice as the first time they forgot. The wine list is also not a good match for the great dishes in the menu. Luckly the food is excellent, especially the seafood ragout and this is why... More

Do not be put off by the front door, as the inside is a great improvement and the food is exquisite. The owner/chef/maitre D will great you and make sure that all the food meets your expectations. The location is just a short taxi or 15 mins walk from the old town and it is so much better than any... More

Italian seafood in a cozy, family ran restaurant. We had a birthday dinner within our company of eight and had a very enjoyable evening. The Chef came out to explain each dish and also assisted with our wine selection. We only three other tables enjoying dinner we felt like we had the place to ourselves, by the 4th course we... More

Had a dinner last night and can't wait to go back!!! I will start by saying, I am a very experienced and ''spoiled'' traveler... By all means, this was one of the best dinners in my life! I had a fish 7course menu and trusted chef to surprise me! It was amazing! The sea scallops with bacon and calamari were... More

Just get in there and trust the chef. He will surprise you mixing traditional recipes revisited as well as innovative ideas. The bread board is worth a special mention. Every little detail is emphasised and carefully looked at. Simply the best in town, excellent quality and excellent value. Book in advance, the place is small and this is great, the... More

We've just returned from a weekend in Genoa to celebrate my mum's 60th birthday and booked Voltalacarta after seeing the rave reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. Prior to the day, the staff were great at communicating with me over email to confirm, re-confirm and finalise our booking and on the evening they went out of their way to... More

This is a truly wonderful little restaurant with a chef who loves and knows his food. We went in for a weekday lunch and tried the 20euro lunch menu which includes two courses, plus a beautiful selection of house baked bread delicacies and bottled water. Every dish on the menu is tempting, making selection difficult. After ordering, the chef sent... More

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
