Food was delicious and authentic. Our group had the focaccia starter plate, which had about 4 different types. Was amazing, I had the octopus and the duck. The duck was cooked exactly to my liking (I like pink) so if you don't ask for a little more cooked and then the others had the trio of pastas (see below) Defiantly... More

A beautiful place in the Porto Antico. The pizzas were more than okay: not exactly "Neapolitan" style (which is the top), but still very good. The focaccia al formaggio "pizzata" was definitely great. The "farinata" was too expensive when it comes to the quantity that we received (after all, it's not exactly rich man's food), but it was very good.... More

We'd been in Italy for over 10 days so we wanted to try something a little different than the typical Italian cuisine. We walked in and were seated immediately but it took a lengthy amount of time for anyone to attend to us (even for Italian service, this was a tad slow). Once we ordered, the server forgot our drinks... More

We had lunch here with friends and children. We all had pizza or cheese focaccia (Recco type). Pizzas were average. Focacce were not bad but nothing special (except one interesting with cheese, Colonnata lardo and nuts). Prices above the average. Overall: Average.

We chose this restaurant while visiting the magnificent old harbour in Genoa - it is basically the only restaurant offering al fresco dining in the area. The view is great and service is professional, but they could do better in terms of food; our main course was a 'tagliata' which sadly resulted to be just an uninspiring steak cut into... More

We enjoyed a meal of local cuisine - mixing and matching the dishes. The staff were happy to split the dishes between our plates to give us something of everything. We enjoyed the farinata, the foccaccio di Recco and above all the pansoti. The restaurant itself is interesting and the welcome is warm.

On out last night in Genoa, we decided to go to a place that we've looked at during our walks. The decider was probably the nice view over Port Antico. The service was flawless. They had a price range that makes it a restaurant for anyone who wants a fancy dining with a view. We sat outside but the inside... More

Ok we had the farinada wich they gave us, was very good. I had foccatia with ruccola and parma ham, it was awesome. My girlfriend had margherita and it was very salty but not bad. The service was more than excellent, we even got some discount for the pizza.

The conversion of the old cotton warehouses in the Porto Antico has provided an attractive restaurant area. We took two lunches here, asking for their E12 "Business" menu; good stuff plus a half bottle of their house white. This is a well run, modern style restaurant, just far enough from the crowd to preserve quality. We were welcomed by the... More
