“Fun, authentic, gourmet meal with great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Do not miss this tiny gem. Up a narrow passage close to the Genoa Principe train station, it is a short walk from the station and from the Hotel Grand Savoie and Hotel Continental (also highly recommended). Compliments to the chef for an amazing meal and to our charming waitress, who entertained us for the evening. The decor is simple, but charming and there is an outside patio for al fresco dining. Try the Ligurian pesto with potatoes and green beans and any seafood dish. Everything we ordered was spectacular. All food and wine was extremely well priced. You will not be disappointed. Salute!

“Very small homely restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

This restaurant is located in a small street off Via Balbi. It's a small restaurant which can only accommodate max 30 people at one time! We went there for dinner and the food was excellent!! Pastas, raviolis, lasagnes are all freshly home-made! Need to wait a little for them to prepare but the quality is excellent! Service was good as well! One of the waitress speaks English, so there's no problem with communication at all! We spent about 2 hours in the restaurant and had a lovely dinner! This restaurant was recommended by Hotel Chopin!

Lovely small restaurant, good italian food. Nice people working in the restaurant. Not expensive. Had pasta with seabass and grilled fish as seconda. Lovely peach tiramisu and good local red wine.

“A great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Conveniently located near the station and yet hidden enough not to be overrun with tourists. Small and informal atmosphere, we enjoyed an excellent meal, reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit.
