Good Genovese food, excellent atmosphere, just right for a large group of friends. Gets quite busy so I recommend you book ahead. Not in a great part of town but don't let that worry you. We never felt rushed but the service was attentive.

Good food and friendly staff. Easily managed a group of 12 elderly English people. Order was taken promptly and food delivered quickly. All 12 enjoyed the food and experience.

From my pint of view this is the best restaurant I found and eaten in during my two week holiday around the med! I love seafood, and this restaurant, like many others in Genoa, specialises in it. I couldn't fault any of the courses, the service was great, good selection of wine to choose from and what a fabulous location... More

We had a great dinner at a reasonable price. Most guests were locals which guarantees the authenticity of their cuisine. The personnel was very friendly and professional, even on a busy night they took the time to explain the menu. A must if you're in the area!

Great medium priced trattoria majoring in seafood. Meal for two including house wine for 60 Euros. Seafood risotto is especially good value and fantastic quality. Busy but staff friendly and speak English. As other reviews state it's hidden away on narrow alley but it is signed from the main covered arcade so not hard to find.

On a recent trip to Genoa for a conference or "congress" as they say in Europe, we found this little gem. It is located very near the Centro Congressi Genova (Genoa's conference center) in the Old Port. After a day of meetings everyone in our group wanted Italian "comfort food" dining that did not require a long walk, cab or... More
