With our friends we visited the toe drue, very surprised to find Andrea the owner fluent in French and finding his passion for quality of his dishes and restaurant. The restaurant has existed for quite some time and our friends told us of the history and the surrounding area. Anti pasti extraordinary, the primi was the dish that put me... More

great 'osteria' atomosphere, service obliging - quick to suggest an 'off the menu' selection of starters - but not attentive - we mostly poured all our own wine, good five minute wait at exit to pay. Food ambitious - orata al sale was a bit over cooked and accompanied by mashed potatoes and nothing else was uninspiring, fried courgette flower... More

Invited to lunch by a local Italian, I wondered what we were in for when we entered the backstreets of Genova Sestri, however I need not have been concerned, a great friendly welcome awaited. I allowed my host to select the menu and sampled some fabulous local specialities along with a very good local white wine. It was clearly good... More

We have had a business dinner here. Great food and best service in town when the owner is not around, otherwise boaring. We were able yo finish dinner by dancing on the table and drink for free....

Creative cuisine, mostly successfully so. Very attentive service, that is bilingual (English in addition to Italian). Fair prices. And pleasant ambiance even if the location of the restaurant is not great, in part because a series of one way streets makes getting there a bit more time consuming.

A friendly busy local restaurant. The helpful owner and staff are very genial and work quickly without being rushed. The menu is fresh and local with a strong bias towards fish. The location is in the back streets by the shipyards with no view, but with great food like this there is no need to gaze outside. It is definitely... More

Admittedly we (being work colleagues on business in Genova) came here by accident because Baldin was closed but it was good luck on our part. The food was really good, the wine was really good, the grappa was excellent and even the bread basket was great. The owner was busy but always helpful and friendly. What more could anyone expect?

With five friends I dined at Toe Drue on Monday evening, 22 April. I had reserved this restaurant in fond recollection of a very pleasant visit a dozen years ago with my teenage son, and I persuaded my travel companions that it was worth the long taxi ride from downtown Genoa. It was not. I concluded that my fond remembrance... More

Traditional Genovese cuisine. The owner comes from the Trieste are so the offering also includes dishes from the North East of Italy. Impressive wine list. Next door there is the Kantina (same ownership) which is a wine bar \ sushi bar and can be a valid alternative to standard dinner.
