Just what you want on a cold day. An excellent hot lunch from the menu of the day. I had beef with a celery and beer salsa and a very enjoyable house red for 17 euros Professional service. Good value for money

We ate a meal sitting outside on the street which had occasional cars driving by but was otherwise quiet. We ordered a bottle of prosecco which was very good at a reasonable price. I had the chestnut trofie & pesto pasta dish which was rich and creamy and my husband and son ordered chicken in lemon sauce which for whatever... More

Food was simple and very tasty, with good house wine proved excellent value. Atmosphere was authentic, unfussy and music free, just the chatter of other diners, most of... More

Stumbled across this place looking for dinner, hosts speak English and the good was good. Only downside is the outside seating is on a thoroughfare for motorbikes/small cars and can be noisy. I'd recommend eating inside next time!

Really enjoyed our dinner here. Enjoyed a typical pasta dish with pesto and a special dessert with a cannoli like filling. Service was very good and our food came out quickly. They have indoor and outdoor seating. We choose outdoors and it was a nice evening

If you are looking for a restaurant in the center of Genova with a high good quality at reasonable price this is the place. The atmosphere is that of a typical 'Osteria' and it fit family.

Please try the pumpkin gnocchi with truffle sauce!
