My wife and I came to this restaurant for the first time while vacationing in Italy and family living in nearby Genoa had reserved a table for sixteen of us on Christmas Day. This was a preset dinner and the restaurant was serving about 160 people beginning about 1 pm.
To try and make this short as I can without describing our five plus hours, we had a wonderful time. The food and service was outstanding. In the room we sat in, I did not see anyone send any food back. The children had different items during some of the courses. The menu was a full page in Italian and family interpreted many of the items we were having. If I made any mistakes on the photo descriptions, I apologize. During the afternoon, the owner came out and led the restaurant singing Christmas songs and also dressed as Santa, giving the children gifts. Hats off to the owner, his wife and the staff for an enjoyable Christmas dinner.

We arrived in Arenzano at sunset during a rain storm. We were cold, wet and very hungry after having spent nearly 9 hours on trains. After checking into the hotel we wandered around looking for a locals eatery. By pure luck we stumbled into this gem. The staff (only two people) were immediately welcoming and very patient with our poor Italian. The server recommend several dishes which were all spectacular. The shrimp, octopus, and calamari were fresh and cooked to perfection. Half way through our meal the owner came to our table and spoke with us. He was by far the friendliest Italian we've met during our three weeks in Italy. After we finished eating and asked for the check he continued to spoil us with limoncello and chocolate covered strawberries and also recommended things we should see and do while in town. This place had a 100% local vibe but was at the same time completely inviting to visitors. I can't recommend this place enough!!!
