“Amazing everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

This restaurant was absolultely amazing and one of our best on the whole trip. It is quite a walk from the centre of Recco so perhaps get a taxi. The veal with patte was outstanding and the pasta was the softest and freshest I have ever tried. Be sure to get the specal dish of the day which scores you a painted dish to take home, a sourvenier plate! The service is amazing, food was the best and lovely atmosphere. A must for a very small town in Italy.

“Excellent Focaccia al Formaggio, No Location, Service Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

"La Manuelina" is located in Recco so, if you come here, don't miss to visit the beautiful and gorgeous Camogli village. Anyway, as before, the quality of the Focaccia al Formaggio is excellent, also price is not so high compared to the fame of the place. No view here, located close by the highway entrance, but again something to try. Service OK.

“Antipasti + wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2011

Just the place for a plate of anti pasti, a plate of soup or even something more substantial in the heart of St Gallen. You can choose exactly what and how much you want from a great selection of cheeses, cold meats, loads of slads, pates,olives etc. Great value and handily situated for a pre-cinema nibble with friends.

“Where Italians eat...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2011

This restaurant was recommended by resident of Genova. My first thought was: "What? Foccaceria?! What the hell should I eat bread? I want meat!"
But than I decided to see, Italians don't recommend bad things. It turned out great! Freat meals at good price! Everything was so tasty! By the way I found there meat meals either. Try Misto di Carne for just 15 Euros, this will exceed your expectations.

“Good food, nice ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2011

Recco sits just outside Genova on the way to La Spezia/Livorno. If you are driving and it is lunch time, this restaurant is a perfect solution. Take the highway exit and once you reach the bottom of the road, turn left and the restaurant is on your right, with ample parking at the back. The inside is sort of retro, or maybe outdated, but almost elegant andvin any case spacious. Recco is very famous for its cheese focaccia so we ordered some, and it was really perfect. I then had veal with mushroom, nothing to kill for but it was good and the mushrooms where fresh, local and perfectly cooked. My friend had fillet with Castelmagno cheese, it was good but part of it was tough to chew.
For what above plus water and one glass of wine the price was 85 euro which I found a bit high. But overall my experience was positive and as a transit restaurant while driving across the area I would recommend it.
