I agree with the previously posted positive comments about Gaia; we had a very pleasant evening there. Reservations recommended, especially on the weekends. The menu consisted of many interesting options including fish, meat and pasta. As an American living in Genova and slow to learn Italian, I appreciated the menu in English and a delightful waitress who seemed pleased to speak English and provided prompt and friendly service. As previously stated the vegetable antipasti, was excellent along with my stuffed ravioli with artichokes and asparagus. A strange phenomenon in Genova seems to be in play when ordering how well done you request your meat to be cooked and it also occurred here. Order meat “well done” and it comes out medium rare, order meat medium and it’s just barely seared on both sides! I suggest you ask how they cook meat before ordering! Italian meat is very different from the USA; neither good or bad, just very different. It’s been my experience to stick with fish, seafood, pasta and regional specialties. We had an excellent bottle of wine with dinner (15 EU) and then ordered a glass of house wine, which was mediocre. Tossed green salad isn’t their specialty: it was shredded lettuce/cabbage a carrot and tomatoes, but the artichoke as a side was excellent. My husband’s broccoli was overcooked; but that’s the Italian way. I’m not sure that I would rate this as the best restaurant in Genova, but you won’t get a bad meal here and the atmosphere is friendly. I would definitely return for more pasta and their excellent wine list!
