Nice food overall but probably avoid the desert We had dinner at Ippogrifo a Tuesday evening during a stay in Genoa. We chose the restaurant by combining evaluations from TripAdvisor with the ranking in the Michelin Guide. Ippogrifo is in a different part of town than our hotel was (don’t really know which part – looked like an industrial/ harbor... More

Lucky enough to be invited here again by generous family. Elegant surroundings, good wine, friendly attentive service and fish to die for - amuse bouche anchovies, crudo followed by al sale, with salad of prawns and ovuli. Light, fresh, beautifully seasoned. Perfection.

We have been there for many times; and each time we have enjoyed a lot. Their service quality is top and food is more than perfect. Wines are quite nice as and lasagne with petso must be definitely tried.

Not being very familiar with Genova, a splendid even if not often included city in a tourist's itinerary, I relied on a friend's advice for a luncheon that had to be not too casual. Ippogrifo is indeed an elegant restaurant, but when the final bill is quite steep elegance is a necessary requisite, certainly not a sufficient one. The three... More

A local business acquaintance invited four of us to this discretely decorated restaurant with plenty of space between the tables to be able to have a quiet discussion together. We all chose different starters and mains courses and everyone was very satisfied by the high quality of the food. I personally had octopus to start with - it was cooked... More

For sure it is not the less expensive restaurant in Genova, however, you will pay for the best quality and not for the cheap quantity...... Strongly... More
