We ate a meal sitting outside on the street which had occasional cars driving by but was otherwise quiet. We ordered a bottle of prosecco which was very good at a reasonable price. I had the chestnut trofie & pesto pasta dish which was rich and creamy and my husband and son ordered chicken in lemon sauce which for whatever... More

This restaurant is tucked down a little side street, there is on street tables, we sat inside. The staff were friendly, relaxed, not overly attentive as seems to be the Italian way! Food was simple and very tasty, with good house wine proved excellent value. Atmosphere was authentic, unfussy and music free, just the chatter of other diners, most of... More

Stumbled across this place looking for dinner, hosts speak English and the good was good. Only downside is the outside seating is on a thoroughfare for motorbikes/small cars and can be noisy. I'd recommend eating inside next time!

Really enjoyed our dinner here. Enjoyed a typical pasta dish with pesto and a special dessert with a cannoli like filling. Service was very good and our food came out quickly. They have indoor and outdoor seating. We choose outdoors and it was a nice evening

If you are looking for a restaurant in the center of Genova with a high good quality at reasonable price this is the place. The atmosphere is that of a typical 'Osteria' and it fit family.

Please try the pumpkin gnocchi with truffle sauce! AMAZING! oVERALL The food is great, the wine of the house is really good, the ambiance is like a little italian restaurant and the service is not fancy but works the wonders, besides the food talks by itself, even if i was treated wrong I would have sucked it up for the...

Today I had a great seafood lunch experience in this small restaurant in the heart of Genova. The menu is full of interesting dishes, both of seafood and meat. I choosed a great pasta: black ravioli of fish seafish sauce. It was excellent, very delicate in taste and good to see. As main course I choosed squids filled with spinach... More

Genoa has some very good restaurants that are not tourist traps, this is one of them and it would be hard to do better at the price and quality offered. Hidden away, once found not forgotten. The service was good, even with a large group. Although I did get there earlier than booked to order in some wine and avoid... More
