The meat was actually good, not super happy about the cooking (asked for rare, came medium), but it is no cheap place at all, and also hard to book. Good service and friendly atmosphere.

Can be difficult to get in as heavily booked by locals. Only way I could get in was to go early (7.15 pm) and agree to be gone by by 8.30 ie first sitting. Like most good steak places they want to cook your steak rare or medium so if you are a well done person maybe not for you.... More

For our second night in Genova we looked for a restaurant on trip advisor and went to Le Mura. we were a little bit early but the very friendly waiter gave us a table and a very good bruchetta to start with! The owner of the restaurant came at the table to tell us the three Maine courses from the... More

I agree with all those reviews which we used to find this place. This is not gourmet, elegant dining. This is a rustic restaurant, a huge Italian welcome from the owner Stefano greeting complete strangers as old friends and serving fabulous red meat, vegetables, desserts and wine. Stefano speaks excellent English and guides you through the delights from his kitchen.... More

It's hard to say if having dinner at Le Mura di Malapaga you will enjoy more the fantastic Italian meat or the unique warmth of the hosts, Stefano and Simona... And don't miss the home made tiramisù!

Found this hidden gem just outside the main port area, was welcomed by the owner who was so friendly and took time to recommend different options on his menu. The steak was the best steak we have had in a long time and was perfectly cooked! Great value for money the potion sizes are large, the quality exceptional and nothing... More

We spent one night in Genova before cruising round the Med, searched online for a great steak house, OMG !!!! Amazing food, great hosts, with fantastic service, they took the time to sit down and explain the menu without 'overselling' recommended a superb wine to compliment the steaks. A fantastic place to eat, a hidden gem !!

Stefano and Simona are the perfect hosts of this tiny, hidden treasure in the one of the oldest parts of the old port area. The food really is mouth-watering - everything is sourced carefully and it's all fresh and cooked to order, the house wine is great and the ambience is relaxed and friendly. It's only open in the evenings... More
