Perfect for real traditional dishes with a very friendly staff. High quality for a fair price. Reservation recommended.

Food is barely decent, definitely too expensive for what it really is. Service is underwhelming--we were asked to swap tables in the middle of our meal, and we had to carry all of our plates, glasses, bread basket, etc by ourselves.

Other reviews on here on TA were generally very positive and the place was was filled with locals but I do not share the same opinion. My pasta with pesto,... More

We were only in Genoa for the day. Genoa was one of the port stops on our MSC Cruise. While reading about what to do in Genoa, I found Antica Osteria di Vico Palla Restaurant. This was exactly what we wanted to do in Genoa. Eat. The restaurant was a short walk from the port. I would suggest printing off... More

I've been coming here for many years - simply because the food is second to none and with a great "locals" atmosphere.

After a day at the Festival Della Scienza my friends and I would come here and eat for dinner.. it was delicious! It was the first time I had a tuna steak grilled and it was amazing. The waiters all spoke English so it was easy to understand the menu.. they have great wine and also keep bringing warm bread... More

Lovely evening! Friendly service, great atmosphere and gorgeous typical Ligurian food.. Not used to the Italian eating way anymore so struggled with the portion sizes but did my best. I was showing my home town to my English friends and you did me proud!
