The interior of the restaurant is like a locker room, hot, humid and smelly. You would expect from a highly rated Tripadvisor restaurant that the menu would be available in english but instead you will face a barely readable handwritten menu. The food was ok, but we can't understand the hype around it.

Typical excellent homemade food in an unassuming setup. Very reasonable prices in this Genovese institution that needs a little bit of effort for foreigners to decipher the menu - the staff can guide through it though.

This a real find in the heart of Genova. I came here with an Italian friend who had learned about it from another Italian. It's a very lively, busy, and down-to-earth eatery with tables both downstairs and upstairs. The menu is handwritten but quite legible (if you read Italian, of course). The food consists of traditional Genovese dishes such as... More

The menu is hard to read and understand. Its not only written in italian, the handwritingstyle is complicated. Anyhow, the staff was friendly enough to translate it for us, a la minute. Great well cooked food at low price. The place is just marinated with smell of food. We did like it and went there three times during a week.... More

This is the place to come if you're on a budget and want great local food in a local bustling environment. During our week in Genoa we ate in some of the best restaurants the city can offer, but Trattoria da Maria is the one we enjoyed most. It's mad busy and the waitresses could probably run a mile in...

Found this by accident whilst looking for something more upmarket. We were enticed in by the heaving restaurant at just 7.45, which is early to eat by Italian standards. Upstairs has dozens more tables. It's noisy, its scruffy, its fast and the menu is practically illegible. But who cares? Great local food, perfect portions, friendly staff. We had primi (trofie...

Hidden away up a side street near Ferrara Metro, I enjoyed a delicious bean soup, escalope Milanese, water and wine fore 11 euros. Agreeable local company.

A great, simple traditional Genoese restaurant in the heart of the city centre. Basic service, old-fashioned atmosphere. 10 euros for a meal consisting in a first dish, second dish with side, a small pitcher of wine. The choice is huge and includes all classics of the Genoese cuisine. The quality of the food is reasonable. Ideal for a quick lunch,... More

Simple and affordable cantine for lunch. Open only at lunchtime. Extensible menu with primo and secondo plus bread and a drink for eur10. House red 25cl is an option and is ok. Great value. Friendly and simple service.

There are not many places in Genoa that you can get a two course meal with bread and a drink (water or wine) for 10 Euros. This Trattoria does not pretend to be a smart restaurant. Instead it offers a wide range of cheap wholesome food served by friendly staff at very reasonable prices. Note that it opens most days... More
