Description: A deli and food shop in the heart of Genoa! Estabilished in 1900 the Rosticceria De Micheli is still owned and run by our family. We offer tasty, good and authentic genoese/ligurian dishes. We take the greatest care over the origin of our ingedients. We cook following Grandmother’s recipes in the tradition of healthy Mediterranean food. You can easily find us in via Macelli di Soziglia, in the historical center of the town, a few steps from via Garibaldi.

“Not a Restaurant!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This is a lovely STORE that sells wonderful food, but it's not a restaurant and if you are using TA to find a nice place to have lunch or dinner, this is not such a place. There are no seats; neither indoors or outdoors, it's more like a fancy grocery store with prices to match. Yes, it is a wonderful store where locals shop and their food especially meats are great plus the local specialties are well represented, but I don't understand how it can be listed as a restaurant.

Do walk up Via dei Macelli di Soziglia; it a wonderfully atmospheric street (don't mind the street ladies, they will not bother you!) and visit the fun shops, fruit stands, vintage stores along the way and be sure to see the beautiful edicole across from Gastronomia De Micheli (look up!) it was created by the meat guild and dates back to around 1750 or so. Also the pastry/focaccia shop a little further up has great apple strudel, plus you must stare into the window of Gastronomia De Micheli-it all looks great...but it does not make this a restaurant!

“Perfect little hard to find place deep in the heart of Genoa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Don't loose hope if you get lost, this place is worth it! We bought a number of different items to taste, got some fruit from the market across the alley, and had a veritable feast. This place has been run by the same family for over 100 years. It's the perfect place to try the Genoese street foods you've read about in your travel guide.
