As vegans we generally do pretty well in Italy, but tend to be limited to marinara or oil suaces, or cheeseless pizza. We came across this restaurant wandering through the streets of Genoa and were delighted to find they had a vegan menu. We had a 3 course dinner and wonderful dessert. The service was excellent! What a find!

This is slightly hard to find but is worth looking for as the food was very enjoyable and well cooked. They have a garden opposite the restaurant and it is a really pleasant place to sit and eat.

We were recommended this restaurant by our Airbnb host and saw nothing else to touch it so returned and ate there. Charming garden and highly attentive service from a waiter who went along with my ropey Italian and only revealed his English when we needed to talk food more seriously! Food is good but the best things are the more... More

I wanted to find a place to have dinner within the Caruggi area of Genova but as a woman alone was wary to traverse too far in after dark. This restaurant is located not too far off the square of San Lorenzo and yet feels far away from it all. Since it was during the summer they served dinner in... More

What a surprise! The dishes are typical Genoa food. Very tasty. I was surprised at first because I thought the servings were little, but they're not. They're just right. Some of us had fish, some a pesto (with anchovy sauce). Bot are very good. The waiters are polite and efficient. We downed it all with a sort of Indian Ale... More

This place looks very nice, and I would recommend it for the experience of sitting in the gardfen. The food however, was a disappointment, at least the varm dishes, seeing as they are all re-heated in microwaves.

As always, a friendly welcome, attentive and cheerful service, and a very tasty lunch. I only had 1 day in Genova and there was no question as to where I was going for lunch. A good selection of vegetarian fare, with options for meat/fish lovers too. And a selection of desserts including a great cherry clafoutis. In summer there's a... More
