Charming ambiance of the local Boheme place. Tasty simple food made in the most traditional home style. Great to have a lunch. Menu on the chalk board in Italian )

We were advised of this place by our B&B host and we were not disappointed. Traditional genovese food I guess. Like nothing we had before....We had prosecco with our fish. Mmmmmm. Service was good and place was full by the time we left. Mostly Italians.

Having read the food was good, we went there yesterday wanting to have an authentic Italian meal. Unfortunately the staff were extremely rude and totally ignoring us. We ordered a bottle of wine which was delicious but had to go somewhere else for food. I do NOT recommend this restaurant and Genoa in general which is an absolute disgraceful city.

Me and 4 of my friends just wanted 2 plates of pasta because we weren't that hungry. The waitress first looked at us and said "we are a restaurant" with a little attitude. After she said that she has to check if it's possible to make just 2 plates of pasta, the owner came out and said that the kitchen... More

Staff was extremely nice and friendly, definitely helpful explaining the menu items for us Americans. The gnocchi was absolutely delicious. Steak and chips was good too, but would definitely go back just for the gnocchi violet!

We found this place on the city map. Because it was marked as "Slow food" we were all exited and went there to try our luck and... got lucky. Please don't do as we did, you might get disapointed and won't be accomodated. Reservations seem, to be a must. The food was excelent, delicious and prepared and presented with lots... More

We had a great night at this lovely and charming little restaurant. The atmosphere and the service was good! More outstanding was the Antipasti and the homemade Ravioli. As a nice finish we had an awesome chocolate cake with wild berries.
