If you go to just one restaurant in Genoa, where you want an authentic meal with the locals at the tables next to you, this is the palce. Very understated and casual - not fancy at all. The location is tucked in off main shorleine...More

Ate here twice on the weekend. My companion had eaten here in past visits after reading a review about it in the NYT. This is not a fancy place but the food is really tasty and this is where the locals go, couples, families, groups...More

The restaurant opens at 7pm for dinner. We arrived to find a long line but we were seated quickly. We believed we were the only tourists at the time we were there. It's small and loud and bustling! The food was delicious and even though...More

Great food, simple and fresh;atmosphere, buzzing and service, friendly and efficient. Rare experience as authentic Genoan/Italian, family independent and great value (about half the price of other, lesser restaurants of a similar style in the area).
