“The real thing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

A real trattoria Genovese with genuine, hearty homemade food. Fantastic!
Quick and friendly service, a real taste of Genova in the heart of the historical centre. And unbelievably good value for money!
Unmissable!

“Trattoria Da Maria - great food, a must-eat place in Genoa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We visited beautiful Genoa mid-July 2014 with my wife, an ate at Da Maria twice! The food and the service was great. We had spagetti with pesto (traditional Genoa type), veggie dishes, fish with veggies, and tiramisu. All were very tasty. Red wine of the house was very good too. Prices were quite reasonable. İf you are a serious gourmet, I advice studying italian epressions in menus to understand the dishes thoroughly and select according to your taste. Remember that like most of the trattorias, Da Maria is closed on certain hours of the day, will be wise to check ahead and plan accordingly. Definitely recommend to eat there.

“A local favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Excellent tasty food, really quick and friendly service. Very good value.
3 courses + drink about 13€
Menu in Italian but waitress was really helpful. A lot of local people came into eat whilst we were there which was a good sign.

Decor looks a bit like your grandmother's bathroom. Best advised to sit upstairs.

“Excellent Value for Money ! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We tried out this little trattoria after reading the reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed.
The pesto was excellent and the house wine just as good. It's not a fancy place and more a little side alley restaurant but it's Great value, highly recommended and would definitely go back !

“Best value in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

The trouble with going to Trattoria da Maria on one's first day in Genoa is that you won't want to eat anywhere else! Tucked away in an alley off Via XXV Aprile, a short walk from Piazza Ferrari, it offers impeccable fresh local specialities off a daily-changing menu at low prices, in a bustling but friendly atmosphere. Frequented by local regulars as well as savvy tourists - you'll end up talking to your neighbour. Well worth seeking out.
