This was my first time trying a fine dining type restaurant in Genova and It was an absolute joy for my taste buds. The restaurant is very small and intimate with only a few tables available (I would make sure to book in advance). We were a table of 7 + 2 dogs and all ordered the Chefs menu of... More

The restaurant is very small and cozy in tipical italian style. We decided to trust the chef and we ordered surprise menu, which was spectacular. It includes 7 dishes all of them with fish, as the reataurant offers only seafood. The food was truly amazing. It is a must to make a reservation , because it has around 16-18 seats... More

The food was delicious, the service impeccable, the atmosphere nice. But the experience can really be summed up by one thing that happened. My fiance was conflicted between two dishes and discussed it with the waiter. The waiter provided insight and ultimately she went with one option. But for good measure, when the waiter brought out the dish, a small... More

Here the service is pretentious, but not so good - they promise a lot, but then conveniently do not deliver, eg we ordered coffee twice as the first time they forgot. The wine list is also not a good match for the great dishes in the menu. Luckly the food is excellent, especially the seafood ragout and this is why... More

Do not be put off by the front door, as the inside is a great improvement and the food is exquisite. The owner/chef/maitre D will great you and make sure that all the food meets your expectations.
