Nice restaurant with tasty pizza and good pasta. The beef was also good. Not topical pasta dishes, without Bolognese and Carbonara, but really tasty.

Pizza is not so good as expected. In Russia pizza even better is done in Italian restaurant. Here is old interior and too noisy. No juice.... only water, cola among non alcoholic beverages.

Had the most wonderful dinner here and were attended to by the most amazing, friendly, amusing server. LOVED, loved, loved the place and will go back when we revisit. The Buffalo burger was to die for, I tasted my husband's steak, medium rare - divine! Everything perfetto!

Me and my partner enjoyed a good meal here last night, the food was very tasty. My partner had a buffalo canneloni, the dish was an interesting take on canneloni, but was served luke warm. Even if this was intentional, it didn't quite work. I enjoyed a buffalo ragu tagliatelle which was very meaty and enjoyable. Our white wine was... More

The food is okay, the service was a bit gruff and confused. They had a good selection of wine and grappa.

Pizza is tasteful. For lunch you have a fixed menu for about 10 euro, but without Pizza (however, they served pasta of orecchiette and Meat of Scaloppine, with drinks, unbelievable value for our money) Meat of tagliata we were however not impressed. Definitely we preferred the pizzas. WE hope they can soon repair the door slamming in the second room... More

We were staying one night in Genoa and happened upon this restaurant as we were walking around to find a spot for dinner. The place appealed from the menu and the restaurant looked popular and quite busy, so we decided to give it a try. The first disappointment was to find that the cannelloni, which sounded great, had run out.... More
