A little restaurant located on the beach. Very nice sea view. The food is not great (what I eat). I was not so happy about my pizza with sea food, the reason 1/3 of the sea shells was closed this means they where not fresh. Why did they put them anyway on my pizza?. The prices are medium. You're choice... More

We had dinner on the terrace, excellent view across the sea, a little bit of wind. Very good menu and the quality of the food was outstanding: be it pasta, pizza, salad. The service was quick, the prices ok. What is missing to be rated excellent? Lower and/or drop the €3 for the coperto (at least for kids per person.... More

Service was attentive and after dinner he brought two Italian (shots) drinks to sample which was unexpected and nice surprise. Amazing to watch the... More

The place is situated on the bay with a view to die for. The food is fantastic and the view is amazing. The staff all spoke very good English and very very helpful.

A traditional location in town to have good pizza or seafood risotto, just overlooking the beach, usually crowded, with nice atmosphere and service. Honest prices.

We had one night in Genoa and our hotel, the Marriott, sent us there. It is located by the sea and we had a perfect table on the terrace right by the edge. The food is good. The service not perfect but at least the staff is smiling! Wouldn't go back but it was a nice stop

I am more and more surprised at not-so-client-friendly service in most of Italian restaurants. Man, I think th least one can do is smile. Not at thus place and not in many others. Ok, lets go on. The food - mmmmmmm, very good. The prices? Well, you gotta smile, dude, if you want me to pay your prices and possibly... More
