I've been there with a couple of friends, we all have chosen seafood dishes: pasta with shellfish (see attached picture), spaghetti with clams, tuna steak and codfish with a special tomato sauce. Very good quality food and great value for money. I also suggest the white sparkling house wine, cheap and delectable.

Trattoria Vegia Zena is located up an alley facing the aquarium on the Porto Antico. From the outside it looks tiny, inside there are several rooms all beautifully decorated and a lovely atmosphere. We went last night (Sunday) and although we hadn't made a booking we were seated quite quickly in this very busy restaurant. The waitress offered us an... More

A smallish restaurant on a very small alley in the old part of town that offers fairly large portions of good food for reasonable prices is always a good find! The service was very Friendly and efficient and even though it was a busy Saturday evening we were well looked after.

small trattoria in the Genova vicoli. The entrance is not so scenographic but the tables are located in a beautiful saloon. Food is very good and if you like to have fish (sardine in my case for appetizer) and pasta with seafood (main course)... the is your place. No expensive compared to food quality

Really liked the food here, but when we were there it was Sunday lunch time and the place was full and service was eventually slow. Also it was quite loud. The dishes were well cooked and tasty, portions were big, house wine was good as well, so we will not hesitate to return. As said only let down was the... More

This hotel was recommended to us by the staff at the hotel we stayed at and it was a fantastic evening. Staff were very helpful in translating the menu, the food selection is excellent with plenty of fresh fish and homemade pasta dishes. It is a very warm, cozy, inviting atmosphere. Loved it and would go back again in a... More
