“Excellent hidden restaurant”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

We were 4 adults and two kids and arrived at a rather late time for lunch. The personnel was friendly and was able to speak english. In terms of food it was excellent and they have an extensive wine selection. The atmosphere is rather nice and warm and prices are ok.

“Wonderful food”
Reviewed 25 January 2013 via mobile

This place surprised me, as I set there for lunch by accident and didn't expect much! BUT as i got to try tuna with pistacchio, I was in love! This is one of the best dishes I tried ever! The desserts are also great! Regarding drinks, they serve only vino and water. The service is fast and polite. Overall a great place for lunch, not too expensive!

“great atmosphere and value for money”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

enjoyed a meal with Italian friends living in Genova. Service and atmosphere was excellent. I made the wrong food choice so didn't enjoy my meal as much as I had hoped. I would have preferred my pasta, which was delicious, without the scampi. My main course was fish with potatoes, a local dish, but I wouldn't choose that again. Plenty of foccacia served and the chocolate torte for dessert was delicious.

“To Recommend”
Reviewed 6 October 2012 via Local Picks

We loved this place the main room is in an old cellar. And they have a great choice of local wines. The food is very good and service is perfect. Not too expensive. A bit difficult to locate though. But highly recommended if you are in Genoa.

Thank Frank D
