I had reserved for a business lunch at this quite good typical restaurant. Unfortunately we got caught up in an endless meeting and we ended up arriving 45 minutes late. I entered the restaurant, speak to the man behind the counter about our reservation, and he explodes in front of me saying "45 minutes late, not even a phone call,... More

Trattoria Ugo e Uga, names of the original owners, is small restaurant tucked away on a back street in downtown Genoa, has been serving home-cooked meals since 1930. The locale is nicely decorated, not fancy, but more like a diner back in the USA. There is booth seating, paper placemats, and no frills. The service is very friendly, though often... More

My wife and family (three children) and I ate here in late July while staying at the Melia hotel, which is a ten minute walk away. The restaurant is tucked away in a quiet pert of the city and doesn't look much from the outside...but the food is delicious with a very varied choice, the service very good and the... More

Totally refurbished typical genovese trattoria. Sadly, the quality of food seemed to be better before the refurbishment and enlargement. Service not attentive. Bread,foccacia and pizza are baked freshly in an oven in the open kitchen.

I honestly do not get the rave reviews. Yes, the food is traditional Ligurian, but there are many traditional Ligurian restaurants in Genova. Yes, the fish seemed to be fresh, but that is easy as well. I found absolutely nothing special about this restaurant or its cuisine. On the plus side, it was reasonably priced. If you want traditional Ligurian... More

I found the tip for the Trattoria here on Tripadvisor. It's definitely a small hole in the wall, a little hidden, but very neat. It's like walking into someones Kitchen at home. The staff really didn't speak much english at all and the menue was a small handwritten paper, but the waitress tried to explain every meal on it. My... More

Like eating dinner in the kitchen of the best cook in the village! We visited on a quiet Monday in July and fortunately the young chef speaks English so came out of the kitchen to coach us through the menu. He made both food and wine recommendations and even brought an item out of the cold case to show us... More
