This is the best seafood restaurant in Genoa. I lived there for 2 years and I've been to so many restaurants there and this is no 1 for me. The staff is very friendly. I've been there so many times and each time had a great lunch/dinner. You can find there many fish dishes and very good deserts. You can... More

The service is so nice !!! Since we don't know any Italian, the lady explained every menu in English for me !!! Definitely recommended. I think it is very popular among Genova locals. When we got there, half of seats are reserved !!!

Fantastic lunch in a delightful fishing village- a must see when visiting Genoa if you have a free half day. Lovely, friendly service and seafood was amazing. Cappon Magra was divine. Good choice of wine and altogether not too expensive.

This was a personal highlight of a 3 day trip to Genoa. Was recommended Bocadasse as a place to visit out of town and the lunch we had here was perfect. Lovely sunny courtyard and helpful waitress who translated the menu and made a great recommendation for wine. Tried the 'Cappon Magra' which was divine. I am not naturally a... More

I agree 5/5.The food was amazing . Anouska co-owner was a great host. We had booked for 7.30pm so it was a bit quiet she advised us to get a drink at the bar round the corner on the beach. Great local atmosphere. We returned an hour later to find the outside full with our table reserved in the middle.... More

We were the only foreign peoples and felt like in a middle of a movie. Young couples, family, friends, different kind of people seems to be regular customers.

When you come to this nice, old-fashioned restaurant overflowing in a little pitoresque square you need to know that you are going to have fresh food (tasty prawns and fresh fish ravioli) in smallish portions, disorganised service and a high bill (40 euros per head with a glass of wine).
