Staff was extremely nice and friendly, definitely helpful explaining the menu items for us Americans. The gnocchi was absolutely delicious. Steak and chips was good too, but would definitely go back just for the gnocchi violet!

We had a great night at this lovely and charming little restaurant. The atmosphere and the service was good! More outstanding was the Antipasti and the homemade Ravioli. As a nice finish we had an awesome chocolate cake with wild berries.

Sourced through Tripadvisor. A little bit hard to find and off the main streets in what seemed like a rough area. Good, basic food. Evidently a local's place. A large table of men were quite noisy and dominated the small room. Wouldn't go there for...More

I have eaten at the Forchetta Curiosa twice and I have never been disappointed. More accurately, I have been pleasantly surprised both times. The environment is nice, what you expect of a genuine genoese trattoria, and the food is really excellent, creative without becoming pretentious,...More

This restaurant was a great recommendation from our B & B hosts. The food was good, and we could not believe how cheap our lunch was. My partner is coeliac, and there were gluten free options for him.
