We live in Milano and we are regulars in Genova. Genova is an incredible city for foodies, even for Italian standards! Gianna is a fantastic small restaurant, each dish is carefully prepared and the taste is out of this world! We had the "Sarde Impanate"...(small fried Sardines) which are the best we had in Liguria during our vacation, a real wonder! Then we had the "Calamaro Ripieno" (stuffed Calamaro), and it was really one of the best Calamaro we ever ate. Add a friendly waitress and a nice interior, and you have one of the best place in Genova! Oh! And the pricing is incredibly honest, especially considering the hard working staff! Thank you Gianna :)More

What an authentic place. This is place you look for but can not find. Original Genovese place in small street with great food and hospitality. The cook came to translate the menu Italian style ( great ) and could adjust the meals as we wanted....Wenhad dinner in a cave like room which must be medieaval.More

Everything was super good and also the price was good for tge quality of the meal. I would recommend it if you have time (the staff is not super fast with the service). Dumplings "cu tuccu" (slow cooked pork with tomato sauce) and trofiette with...pesto, potatoes and string beans are highly recommended!More

This was our favourite meal in Genoa and we snagged one of the last tables in the restaurant on a busy Saturday night. We stumbled upon it in an alleyway, it looked traditional and it didn't disappoint. The food was delicious, especially the dessert. The...menu is all in Italian but they were very accommodating in helping us understand what everything was. Highly recommend!More

When you get a menu with zero English and a restaurant with not one English speaking staff member. And you feel at ease then you know you have found a gem great food great time.

We stopped here by chance and that was our luck! This family runned restaurant (third generation within those walls) his a fantastic spot to taste typical food from Genova and enjoy a not to touristic location. We had some delightful pasta with fish and codfish...ravioli, an outstanding tiramisù and some good local wine. Not to expensive and the owner really nice and helpful! Well be back!More

A very enjoyable dinner last night at the Trattoria da Gianna - we were lucky to get a table on a Saturday night. This time we tried the other Ligurian red, Ormeasco. This was a Superiore and opened up very nicely once I got the...wine glasses changed - I just don't get why they don't serve decent glasses to begin with! We shared an excellent dish of trofie with pesto and then waited for 30 minutes for the second dish - but it was well worth the wait when it came! A superb platter of grilled seafood. The best we've tasted yet! A terrific dinner for €56.More

We stopped here after walking for awhile looking for a place to taste Genovese food. We found it! We had a type of ravioli with a walnut sauce and pasta with genovese pesto (to die for!). We also tried two desserts that were also spectacular....Did I mention that the staff was super sweet and gave us great recommendations!More

Visited on our first night in Genoa after our B&B host booked us a table after her reccommendation. Nice home cooked traditional food. The highlight was the first course (trio of pasta dishes), very tasty! The grilled sea bass was a bit burnt, but other...than this, a really pleasant dining experience. Grazie!More

I came here with my parents and brother during a trip to Genoa and it was definitely a food-highlight of the trip! We got a range of different pastas with seafood sauces. Each dish was carefully prepared and tasted incredible. Desserts were amazing too. The...service was amazing and the prices so reasonable considering the quality of the food!More
