“Do not miss eating here!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We went here on the recommendation of our hotel reception. We had spent the previous 10 nights in Tuscany and the Cinque Terre and had many delicious meals. However, our meal at Retro on our last night in Italy was the best meal we had in Italy - and that's saying a lot! My main meal was the beetroot and spinach cannelloni with walnut sauce. The cannelloni was the best I've eaten (and my family is Italian and great cooks!). My boyfriend had the steak and could not stop raving about it. Dessert was a highlight, among the best dessert I've ever eaten. The service was fantasic and we had a lovely Lingurian red wine with our meal and complementary dessert wine with dessert. We left a huge tip (over 25%). Wish we had been able to stay longer in Genoa, we would have come here every night!

“best meal in Genoa”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Excellent food at reasonable prices; atmospheric restaurant with live jazz the night we went. DO NOT MISS the special pudding for two people at 15 euros (4 full sized puds). WE shared a starter, had a main course each, the massive pud, two glasses of wine and a bottle of sparkling water and the total damage was 63 euros before tip. Loved it. Closed Sundays. Would very definitely go back.
