“Few frills, but honest cooking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

Handily situated close to the Piazza Principale station, large hotels and the university, this is a homely restaurant with few pretensions. Service is brisk and friendly; the food fresh and appetising from a limited menu which features good fish. Clearly popular with local people too and reasonable value.

“The best and best value meal we have had in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Just 200m down the road from the Grand Hotel Savoia, this meal was everything we hoped for and more. Sure the atmosphere is a little 'homey', but the staff couldn't have been more welcoming, warm and helpful and the food!! Generous servings. So fresh. A nice blend of traditional local and other meals (including steak & chips for those who are a bit over the bread / pasta)
.... and the servings were huge. For a mere €61 for 4 courses, a bottle of wine, water for two people, we felt compelled to tip generously. Highly recommended.

“Stay away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

The worst resturant in genova, expansive and no value for money. Four prawns per 15€, average pasta, and slow service

“Steffano and Mama- Excellent Hosts... Home Cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Atmosphere of place is sparse... Feels like your home kitchen... very hot-just fans to cool you off-but the food.....

Excellent. In the land of the Pesto sauce.... Primo.... Like it so much that we went there 2 times in 2 days. It was actually the best thing about Genoa.

Genoa is dirty-- and there seems to be a crime element since it is a port city but this cafe is worth the stop. Warning.... service is a bit slow if you have several tables at once... but do not give up... definately worth it.
