“Absoloutely over, Don't waste your time”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

If you can find this place, you can also find another, more interesting and better place to eat in Genoa. It is totally over. If you want to sit near babbling American self described "foodies" - then go for it. Victim of own success here - and the inet and things like online reviews. All u get there is tom and sally from some pseudo- hip enclave thinking they "discovered" a hidden gem for their blog or whatever. No longer a real find or authentic, food now average to neglected and "lieblos" as the German tourists out it. Arrivederci, tom, sally and vico palla-

“Very well executed traditional cuisine”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

This is a (now) well known Osteria located in the port area of Genova. It delivers a pleasant traditional atmosphere and the food menu exhibits the really succulent choice of the genovese food. And all this is well executed: baccala, bagnun of anchovies, fried fish, pasta and ravioli....
I have been here already a few times, and my recent visit didn't disappoint me.

“Really good.”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Lovely place, pleasant service. Great seafood and white wine, reasonable prices. Yup, the latte frito dessert is delicious. At weekend, either get there early, or book.

“Surprising Liguria”
Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I were there by chance: nothing unexpected was better than this before! MANDILLI with pesto are exceptional, TROFIE with swordfish are perfect, fried fish is really tasty! But if you go there you MUST NOT loose LATTE FRITTO: a little piece of Heaven on Earth!!

“Nice food & service”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

I liked food and service at this place. But it was strange to meet a guy who was trying to sell us a rose there.
