This old well known restaurant near the harbour of Genova was fantastic. The freshest fish! Also the desert was delicious.
Staff very friendly.

My girlfriend and I went for lunch as we were unable to go for dinner the night before due to it being a Monday night. We were recommended by a family member who had been there some years before and to honest it sounded like we had the same service and food experience.
We had the most wonderful mussels for starters and I have to say the service was great as we were made to feel most welcome and at home. For the main we were not disappointed as I had a seafood soup which was bulging with half a lobster some other shell fish and this amazing tomatoey soup. My girlfriend had Sea Bass which was also cooked to perfection. We had a wonderful half bottle of local white wine recommended by the maître d' which complimented our very well further to this it was not over priced at all like some restaurant's do when recommending wine.
Ok the bill was around €70 so not amazingly cheap but I would recommend a lunchtime meal if you are in Genoa.

We ate at Ristorante Da Rina based on a recommendation from a friend who resides and works in Genoa. Da Rina is located down close to the Historic Port Area. Upon entering Da Rina, we were greeted by the owner and wait staff and we were seated at the "Presidential" table which was often frequented by former Italian President Pertini. The walls were filled with photographs of celebrity and famous persons who also had dined at Da Rina.

The restaurant is large and tables were not crowded too close, offering adequate privacy for a romantic dinner or business dinner. Da Rina appeared to be frequented primarily by regulars who know where good fresh seafood can be served.

We left the menu selections up to our waiter, as is often done in Italy when you depend greatly on the management knowledge to serve the freshest and best the restaurant has to offer.

We started with several different seafood antipasti...rosetti (a Ligurian specialty), a large sea scallop served on top of a tomato bruschetta, grilled shrimp and a skewer of octopus. All very tasty and not too filling.

This was followed by homemade, very thin lasagna noodles served in an original pesto Genovese sauce... Excellent! Our main entre` was fried baby totani (little squid) served with delicately fried juilien vegetables. Desserts were fresh sliced pinapple and fruit.

All this and a bottle of Vermentino, a glass of grappa and water totalled approximately 60 Euro a person. Service was extremely attentive, multi-lingual and at times, entertaining. I will return to Da Rina.

We walked along the harbor to get here and almost turned back a few times because it felt sketchy. But so glad we kept going. The seafood was wonderful - fresh, well prepared, good size portions. Attentive service - the owner Giorgio is like a one man comedy show- and reasonable prices, especially considering the superior quality.
