The Restaurant was always fully booked an we needed a reservation to get a table for 9 Person. The Staff was friendly and helpful but overloaded and always in a hurry. The mixed Grill with Vegetables was OK but definitely not more than OK as the pork shop was nearly raw and tasteless except tasting burned which it was not... More

As already stated the outside is very unassuming but once inside, it is lovely. Not many covers, and when we visited it was full of locals so do book. We had booked and discovered when we arrived that the chef had put on a menu with 9 courses of anchovies. Too much for us but we were allowed to choose... More

Although this small restaurant looks unassuming from the outside and you have to ring the doorbell to gain admittance, once inside you're in for a culinary treat. Menu is entirely seafood based and is high end cooking elevating it above the excellent trattorias we've enjoyed across Liguria. Attentive staff, amuse bouche and an least seven different types of freshly made... More

I have to say what a fabulous place to eat....the chef has the touch of a genius when combining fish dishes and the skill and presentation are first class. Front of house is no different.....decor is simple and knowledge of the staff regarding the menu and wine is spot on. If you are ever in Genoa this is the place... More

We had great eating in general in Genoa but this was just outstanding.You can not tell the wonderfulness of the restaurant from outside but once you start dining, the place becomes magical. We ordered chef's 5 course + dessert menu which came with various of delicious bread made by the chef. Every dish was culinary art. I wished I was... More

Hard to find with a very non description entrance but inside what an experience. There are only about 30 seats do make sure you book. Al a carte or degustation available. We had the degustation and it was superb. And reasonably priced for what you get. Treat yourself.

It has to be without a doubt one of the best dining experiences I had. The food is amazing because the products are of the highest quality. The chef in this restaurant is great. He truly cares about what he does. This restaurant offers a regular menu, but also you can choose to have a dinner that consists of one... More

A small restaurant , downtown Genova , easy to find with a fine dining. All Menù is dense of original dishes and fresh ingredients. It cannot be defined a regional restaurant , they have a good selection of wines, defenitely a place to go.

This small restaurant with only a few tables can be hard to find as it is not advertised much but even so even more worth a visit. The chef is a great gourmet magician and everything taste as great as it looks. Even the bread while waiting for the food to be served is an experience of quality and pure... More
