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

This restaurant and his surrounding was the highlight of our stay in Genoa. The service was nice, very warm and friendly waitress. The food was amazing. 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. The Boccadasse area where this restaurant... More

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).

Osvaldo is reputed to be the best fish and seafood restaurant in Genoa. It is located in the old fishing village of Boccadasse on the eastern edge of Genoa. We ate there and loved the food, the atmosphere and the service. We made our reservation (which is recommended) via email several weeks before our visit. However, when we got there... More

5 stars. For everything. Wonderfully prepared and presented food, smiling, friendly and attentive service. Rainy day and no room inside, so they set up the veranda for us. Do taste 'zuppa di cozze e vongole' but remember that it is a big big dish for a starter. Do not miss 'gnocchi con cozze vongole e gamberetti' among the first dishes.... More

I took my wife to Trattoria Osvaldo after enjoying a dinner there in May on a business trip. It was a wonderfull repeat experience. The seafood was excellent and the service as professional as I experienced before. Mrs. Verusca deserves an Oscar for her restaurant!

We had octopus first and then pasta al pesto and panzotti al noci. Then we shared a dessert. Everything was delicious. Service was great, the waiter explained every dish and was truly kind. We had a bottle of prosseco and we paid 70 euros. Good price for a fantastic meal.
