Remarkable restaurant

Excellent restaurant, located in a beautiful ancient palace whose frescoes are still on the walls. The food is simple but very tasty and I particularly recommend the desserts. It is a family affair and the waiters are very nice and welcoming. If you are in Genova, you shouldn't miss it !

Stumbled upon this place for lunch. The inside is beautiful, a great experience to see if you're in the area! The entire inside is covered in amazing art that is breathtaking alone. The menu changes everyday from what I could tell, and seems to be pretty authentic Italian.

The best thing about Cambi Café is the spectacular room - all walls and the ceiling are covered in frescoes. We came for drinks - the prices are steep compared to other places in Genoa, but you pay for the elegant setting. Drinks are served with chips, nuts and a small plate of appetizers. We didn't eat a meal here,... More

One of the great things about Genova is losing oneself in the tiny passageways of its medieval centre. The other day while doing just that I stumbled across this elegant restaurant. I am very glad I went inside, and even more happy I sat down for lunch. Under the gorgeous frescoes in the main dining room, I ate very lightly... More

Whether sitting outdoors in the garden or indoors surrounded by the Bernardo Strozzi frescoes, have aperitifs at Cambi. A glass of wine brings along with it delightful pieces of cheeses, frittata or meats.. truly a meal in itself. For lunch or dinner, the appetizers are also a full meal, sumptuous and tasty. For pasta, order any that have salvia (sage)... More

We strolled up to this place about four nights ago when we were looking for a place to have a drink. We had a drink but were we surprised by the service and the decor. So, we went there the next night for dinner. Frescoes are beautiful, service is attentive and the whole atmosphere is very good. We had a... More

We ate dinner at the Cambi Cafe three days ago. The dining room is exquisitely elegant with frescoed walls and ceilings and very elegant diners. If it had been a film, I would want to view it again and again. We had a delicious Masi wine. The food was inconsistent. My fish was overcooked and insipid. I can understand why... More

What a fantastic restaurant, it's in part of an old Palazzo and its interior is completely covered in the most fantastic, and carefully restored, frescoes by Bernardo Strozzi (who made the famous ones in the Palazzo Rossi) So don't be put off by its rather pricey looking exterior - as inside you will find warm, friendly and very personal service....

I visited this restaurant on the advice of a local man. I visited with my family. The attention we received on arrival (we had not booked, so they worked hard to fit us in) was fantastic. Sat by a window and received a selection of plates of various delights and an exceptional local wine. My daughter had the pesto, famous... More
