I feel sorry for the staff, because they are the only good thing in this place. From the bread to the dessert this was just a painful experience. We tried many things, waiting for it to be better. Even the mayo (Develey) was appalling. It...More

The pub is very expensive. We were eight people, one girl didn't want to drink and they said us that who sits at the table was obliged to buy something, even if there were seven person on eight that were drinking. Very unkind!! Genova is...More
