“Went downhill quickly”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

This restaurant was close to our hotel, so we ate there the first night we arrived in Genoa. My husband had the gnocci with pesto (8 euros) and I had the lasagna (11 euros). It was very good, not great. For the price would recommend it. Repeated the dinner again. Same results, however we did notice a 2 euro per person charge. Whether this was a mandatory tip or for bread, we didn't know. The third time definitely was not a charm! I ordered pasta carbonara that was the worst pasta that I have ever been served anywhere in any country. Absolutely tasteless. No sauce. Nothing. It was like a serving of al dente spaghetti on a plate with nothing else on it. My husband's dinner was not as bad but was certainly not good. It was a terrible meal, although the men running the restaurant were very friendly but service was slow. Even though this restaurant was convenient, just opposite the train station, I wouldn't recommend it. It could be pretty good or just plain awful!

“Nice firendly and affordable”

We eat at the Ristorante Trieste (via balbi 157, 159r). We had good pasta and excellent friendly atmosphere. Don't expect anything posh, but just italian pasta and good service.
