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

We read good things about this restaurant and the fact that it is right in the centre makes it very easy to get to. Only one word of warning: you most likely are going to have to wait a bit for a table, which we found immediately a good thing being the best indicator of a good place to eat!... More

It is a hidden small tratoria with average tasted food but surprisingly cheap . First impression as tourist is oh my God we discovered a "diamond" the perfect place where medium class Italians can eat every day but you have to compromise that you are not going to eat tasteless italian type food cooked by an Asian cook .

Came here randomly as in the evening many restaurants are fully booked. Da Maria is a quite hidden place besides the big restaurants. Once you found it you definitely should not be shocked by the small room on the first floor. It does not look and feel like a 1st class restaurant as the interior have rustic charm. The menu...

Nice trattoria with good food, fast service & best of all decently priced. Euro$25.00 for 2 pax full course is definitely a bargain at dinner time. Will recommend this to anyone who cares for a good, cheap meal.

This family-run establishment leaves much to the imagination in terms of service, but I'm not sure what you would expect from a small family-owned business tucked away down Vico Testadoro. The staff speak little English and the menu is almost impassable as they're written up daily by hand in Italian, which is not the easiest to navigate! However, we muddled... More
