My girlfriend and I were in Genova for one night and we went to "Le mani in pasta", the food was great and the service was excellent. You may have to book before going.

Lovely little restaurant with really very good pasta and desserts (could not manage a second course - but they looked good). Recommendations for delicious local wines too. Service was friendly and helpful, menu in English available.

I was very excited when I walked in, the place looked beautiful and the staff friendly and welcoming. My family and I ordered dishes we know very well and were looking forward to taste them as the presentation was stunning. However the food was a huge let down. Tasteless fish and heavy desserts that tasted very bad. We probably have... More

The food was fabulous in this restaurant. I had the steak with mushrooms and my husband had the baked sea ads. Both meals were delicious and the restaurant has a great homely feel. The service was very good and friendly. I can recommend this restaurant to everyone.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a very good quality of food here. We had a cheese platter starter which was very nice and a mixed grill for two that was really good. The mixed grill had some great steak and lamb. Waiting staff were nice but made some mistakes which I felt was a little bad since there were only... More

The food was OK and service was nice but not to Italian standard. It's a nice place but we spent quite some time waiting for food and then they forgot to cook my meal anyway so I was waiting even longer and ended up eating after others almost finished their food.

We ordered muscoli alla marinara for the starter but I must say I ate better ones in other italian & greek restaurants. We mostly ate fish food and we liked. Torta di mele and tiramisù were delicious. Restaurant is small and it is necessary to make reservation. Owner knows English and is very friendly like his staff. The location is... More

What a great find this restaurant was. Seafood was superb and really fresh. The owner Gabriel was very helpful in selecting wines and dishes His recommendation for the seafood ravioli was right on target. Genoa is a nice city and this restaurant is surely a standout.

Came with my family here, hadn't booked and was lucky to get a table. The owner spoke great English and was very friendly, as were the waitresses, food was of a really high standard and very well cooked, the prices were very reasonable. It is not the easiest place to find but it was nice to find a quieter spot... More

What to say... What a nice surprise, the quality of the food is great,(fish was fresh, wine superb, portion on the big side) the ambient fits the character of the city, the service was also in the genovese style... Perfect! I totally suggest this place!
