We went to this place for lunch as it was listed in the Michelin Guide as the typical places. The place is located near the old harbor area with easy parking facilities. The owner/waiter was super friendly but the service was way too long. It took hours to be served our simple lunch dishes. The food was good but not... More

This place came highly recommended. The server was very friendly and helpful with our limited Italian. He explained the dishes that were written on the chalkboard. We had the pesto tortellini which was delicious. Our friends had the filet which they loved. I enjoyed the deep fried zucchini The only down side was that it was very busy so you... More

We were able to make reservations earlier in the day and were glad we did since people were being turned away at the door as soon as the restaurant opened. The food was marvellous and the house wine pleasant. We had a vegetarian n our party and they were able to find menu optons. One of the best was a... More

The Osteria was just round the corner from where we were staying and it was a great find. It had a lively atmosphere and was reasonably priced. The food choices were great too, we loved it.

Fantastic food and very friendly service! A place more occupied by local people rather than tourists! I suggest to ask for octopus and a piece of large local dorado

We were recommended this place by our hotel and decided to give it a go on our first night in Genoa. We arrived with no reservation and were very lucky to get a table - most other people were turned away so would definitely advise booking! The food was amazing - we had an antipasti to share followed by a... More

Yes this place is very traditional Genovese. Always full, make sure you reserve a table. The menu changes according the availability of food and ingredients; we were 4 and everyone left the restaurant happy and full. Definitely a place to try out, specially if you are hungry.

This restaurant is worth seeking out - it is near the port. Use Google maps to find it as it is off the beaten track. The restaurant is intimate, Italian and interesting. The choice includes fish, vegetables and meats. It was very good value. It is casual interesting food. Great for friends to meet.

Than have to wait 15-20 min somebody to bring a menu which was only on Italian as we have to wait near one hour for main dish. For peak hours - non well calculated the number of... More

My girlfriend and I dropped in here for lunch and we were in love with the food and the ambience. It's not the cheapest restaurant In Genova and it's also not very easy to find it but it's worth the money and the effort ! Enjoy
