“Our best pizza in Italy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. It was described as a small, local eatery which served excellent pizza in an authentic Genoa cafe atmosphere at reasonable prices. They were right on every count.

The service was great (especially as they could manage only a few words of English). The starter (generous serving of prosciutto and melon) arrived promptly and was delicious. It came along with a basket of very nice breads. The recommended wine was very pleasant - and at 18 Euro very reasonably priced. The pizzas were just terrific. We have enjoyed many pizzas over the last 3 weeks in Italy, but these we definitely he best. Thin, light and crispy base, with well balanced toppings that were rich in flavour.

If we had stayed another night in Genoa, we would have been back for more.

“Good pizzeria for a fair price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

The restaurant is seated at a little square, which misses some intimacy though. No car noise though. It has a nice terrace. The waitresses are nice and doing their best to speak English (which they do well enough). The pizza was really good. Wine came in large glasses. I would go again

“Great value food + friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a simple dinner near our hotel on XX Settembre and found this cute restaurant behind the Mercato orientale. We loved the friendly service, sitting outside with the locals and the yummy pizza! It's not a 'wow' restaurant but definitely a good value option if you re staying in the area.

“Lunch with the locals of Genova”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Exploring Genova yesterday we discovered Osteria della Piazza located off of via XX Settembre. Crowded with local folks, we luckily found a table for 6 and had a truly enjoyable meal. We ordered a few extra dishes because we all wanted a little taste of everything from the pesto gnocchi, fried fresh anchovies, sausage and arugula pizza, etc. With a couple of bottles of aqua minerale and a liter of house white wine, it was the perfect pranzo. The check came to €73 ($94)...a very good value for the quality and quantity of food and wine.

“Very good and not expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Everything was closed whan we arrived in Genova. We walked a little close to our hotel (on Via Settembre XX) and we found this small restaurant on the Piazza Colombo.
Small prices but very good food and very nice waitress.
