Nice for lunch

This place is in the middle of Genoa's old cultural center, Galleria Mazzini. The upper floor is reserved for a cheaper lunch, while the lower one is the real full-prized restaurant. Still, the food upstairs is great, with some nice selection of pizzas, pastas and other dishes. My rigatoni... read more

We chanced upon this restaurant after checking out another one which we decided against. So glad we came to this unpretentious place as we had a very enjoyable meal. There seemed to be a lot of locals eating here, always a good sign and it is a bit off the main tourist areas, also a good sign. We had anchovies... More

we found this place by chance and now we believe that we were really lucky. Everything was very good and the service was extra ordinary. Charlie is one of the best and i can visit this place again just to order his recommendations.

I have been going to this restaurant since 1979 on my many trips to Genoa and it has never let me down. The food is fresh & cooked on site, the service is warm and friendly and the bill is always a pleasure to pay. What else can you ask for? Everybody would want to have an Italian restaurant like...

Went to this restaurant with some locals and was very impressed with the food and service. The seafood salad was delicious and the artichoke antipasto piatto was exceptional.

Our second night in Genova, and after a poor pizza on our first night, our quest for authentic fodder found Mdme and myself shuffling up the Mazzini gallery to the poorly titled "Europa" Surely a more imaginative name is required for a restaurant in a city full of flamboyant architecture and artistry (Check out the ceilings on some of the...

In the middle of an old gallery, you will find this very nice restaurant. The outside wont "invite" you to get in, but once inside you are going to taste a very typical Genovese food, with a great pasta and fish qualities.

We loved the location in the Mazzini galleria, and the food was great. It feels like an authentic place, not for tourists but more for people who work or live locally. Reasonable prices, perfectly friendly service and a fine experience all around.

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we went back a second night. Large variety of food and cost so everyone was happy. Specially cooked up some gluten free pasta for one of our group. The waiter was excellent.

I used to eat at Europa as I was a student and I still eat at Europa being on business! It really maintain its double soul as easy pizzeria and traditional genoese high level restaurant. Very good food (also fish dishes). Prices very cheap at Pizzeria, not so at Restaurant. Nicely located inside Galleria Mazzini (right in the center).
