The restaurant is simple, between Medieval walls. The typical Genoese cuisine, salad cakes, focaccia, farinata, pesto (typical basil sauce) testaroli, vero tasty. I suggest You focaccia con formaggio and pizzata, better farinata as starter. therefore fish, squids, and normal pizza. good dessert to end. But You must have no hurry, the Owners is rude but nice, he takes his Time,... More

Very nice place and atmosphere. Monica, the owner, was very welcoming to us. I've tried the most amazing pasta with 'crema al tartufo' you cannot miss for the world ! Definitely the best culinary experience I've had in Italy. Although, I have to point out that out of a group of five, one of my friends had to wait really... More

I agree with other reviewers that it wasn't the easiest place to find and that service wasn't the fastest one but that did not bother us, we were not in hurry after all. The food was authentic (as the... More

not a friendly place for new people, hard to be found, no parking, can only be reached by walking and asking 1000 times for directions, even if you google map it!! Food ??can really tell how fresh it is or if it is cooked daily

A restaurant where is possible to try some of the typical Genovese food. Pasta and vegetable cakes. Good, but not special.

I had a fantastic dinner, the food was of high quality, the wine great, the owner really friendly. I love these local restaurants, they make you feel "at home". The price was also fair. I strongly recommend it.

suggerisco di scegliere questa trattoria se si cerca un posticino casereccio, che offre ottimi taglieri misti di affettati, formaggi e torte di verdure come antipasti, e dei buoni dolci della casa, vino meglio bianco che rosso, e come piatti a voi la scelta, alcuni riservano spiacevoli sorprese, altri gradevoli al palato.. non si trova carne, cosi come bibite diverse da...
