Both the food and the service here are amazing. The staff are clearly very proud of what they have to offer - and rightly so. From other reviews on here I can already see that - as for us - the dish Portama al Mare...More

This little trattoria close to the old harbour of Genoa is worth the “detour” if you are traveling with children and a dog. Good service and good food for a decent price.

Acciughetta is a "funky" trattoria devoted to the small blue fish also called "pan do mâ"-"sea bread". Every day we love to introduce new combinations in our menu shaping them from traditional Ligurian cuisine and both listening to our imagination. Everything using quality ingredients bought in stores in the nearby, wherever possible. The restaurant is composed by a young staff (average 30 year old) with a strong passion for cooking, hospitality, communication, presentation, quality, conviviality, chatter and ... obviously ... wine.
