Although not easy to find, this restaurant is well worth searching out. The Sea-Food dishes are excellent and the Focaccia bread is amazing. If you're in Genoa, this is reasonably priced and really good quality.

As I lived in Genoa in the 90s for almost 10 years I remembered this place when we were looking for somewhere to dine in Sestri. Only problem - NO parking nearby (2km?) so you have to come by taxi. But it is worth it...More
