Great interior. Mainly a cafe but light meals too which were good. Good location at the entrance to a maze of atmospheric back streets. We came back.

Stopped for a drink. In a nice back street off the main road. Service was great. Beer and complimentary olives and peanuts. Nice spot to relax and watch the people go by.

Shared a bottle of wine on the outside terrace here at lunchtime, with croque messieurs and finger snacks. Very relaxing. Staff were helpful and friendly. Has a French theme.

This is a lovely little cafe in a great spot, right next to the Palazzo Ducale. It's a vibrant spot for a nice evening drink if you sit outside, we enjoyed it immensely and went several times. The mirrors on the inside are nicely aged...More

I reviewed this place a few years ago and it was terrific. It has since changed ownership and is now one of the worst places in Genova. Absolutely awful. I have had some pretty bad appertivi in some pretty crummy bars but this is maybe...More

This is in a convenient location down a side street off the Piazza Matteotti. We had tea and a nice raspberry tart on the terrace. Friendly service.
