Le Rune is a perfect place to enjoy a wonderful lunch. The ramekin size quiche was delicious and the colorful lettuce salad that came with it was flavorful, too. I highly recommend this place. The service is friendly and competent.

Our party of eight went to Le Rune because of rave reviews on TripAdvisor, but we had a very poor experience. The service was adequate, but not outstanding, the restaurant itself has little to recommend itself in terms of ambience, and the tables were too close together. The main problem, however, was with the food. The restaurant is supposed to have wonderful octopus, one of my favorite dishes when we are in Italy. My son and I both ordered it. The octopus was so tough and dissicated that I could barely hack through it and after one bite returned it to the kitchen uneaten. My son said his was okay, but after three bites he, too, gave up and left the rest untouched. My wife ordered the cod. It was so undercooked that she could only nibble around the edges, leaving the tough center untouched. While the kitchen removed my dish from the bill, they did not inquire about the uneaten dishes served to my son and wife and we were billed for them. A responsible kitchen/waitstaff should inquire whether the uneaten food was unsatisfactory, which it was. We would not go back to Le Rune.

We loved Le Rune, from the moment we arrived we were greeted with excellent and friendly service. The food was amazing and the house wine was very good. We enjoyed the meal so much we booked to go the following night too. Cannot recommend it highly enough, a real gem.

The staff is AMAZING!!! They are really friendly, helpfull and kind. They turned off the AC when it was blowing cold on us. They happily translated one of the menues. The food is ok, not the best but some dishes are better than others. Well worth a visit when in Genoa!
