“Best Birthday Meal”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We found this little place by accident after a long walk and they happily served us some refreshments despite the fact they weren't actually open. We saw the view from the restaurant and decided this was the place for my birthday meal. Not all our party were able to arrive at the same time but the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The food was superb, good, wholesome, Genovese food and the wine was also excellent. The restaurant also provided a birthday cake which was delicious. Despite us staying way past their closing time not once did we feel we were hurried along. Would definitely go back.

“Without soul”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The place is located on the hills right north from the city thus meaning a great view from the windows or from the terrace during summer.
Unfortunately the above marks the end of the very good news.
The food, is plain simple genovese food with some (not really original) variations, not too bad not excellent (you can do better at home)
The service, on the other side, is terrible. Genoa is not well know around for its hospitality, but here we are at the gold medal of the "I don't like you to eat here" grand prix.
Price is in line with the expectations for this kind of "trattoria"

“Wonderful view of Genoa. Good typical food.”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

The place is wonderful. The restaurant has a terrace from which you can have a whole view of the downtown. The food is very typical from Genoa. Give a try at the Caponmagro with a local Pigato wine.

“Great food, great value, great for families”
Reviewed May 11, 2011

I went to Genoa with my husband and 2 children of 3 and 5 years. We went to eat at ristorante Montallegro; the kids had a fantastic pizza and myself and my husband had a capomagro which is a Genoese delicacy which was amaizing! The staff put cartoons on the telly for the kids while they eat their ice cream and we all had a ball. Don't miss out!
