This was a last minute decision to stop in Genoa for a few hours enroute to Alba area to eat truffles. Found the review on Tripadvisor; looked good; boomed a table around 9 am. Got here at 13:00, parking is tight and the restaurant is full. I am probably the only non-Italian here (my husband is Italian) and that is... More

We were a group of ten. Everyone had something different (but shared) and everything was exceptional. My group was mostly Genovese and this was truly authentic Genovese and Ligurian cuisine. We will be back many more time. The owner is a true gentleman and the staff was superb.

This is one of my favorites. From sitting in the bar and having a drink to thei dining area and having a wonderful meal. Great atmosphere and the location is easy to get to.

The place is out of town, on a small hill. When you get inside, it's like a crowded cantine that lots of senior people and working colleagues dining there. We went there a laboral Thursday on the way to Florence. The tagliatelle with funghi pocini was the best pasta I tried so far. The same as the seafood noodles I... More

We had lunch in Trattoria Arvigo. The restaurant is not really in the center, but definitely worth a visit for those who would like an authentic Ligurian meal. The service is very friendly and we were welcomed with a complimentary glass of spumante. Our children did not have a starter, but they received their pasta course with our starters. Pasta... More

This is in the suburbs - about a twenty minute drive from the city center. Our garmin did not recognize the address, you drive past a big storm sewer and past industrial parks, then drive all the way to the top of a hill. My husband's frittura italiana was well prepared. My batter fried cod suffered from undercooked, wet and... More

Wonderful place! Very cosy! The owner of this restaurant is very kind and nice old man. He doesn't speak English but in spite of it he tried to know our impression of his place. I spoke with him in Spain and he answered me in Italian and we understood each other))) All cuisines are delicious.
