This restaurant had come out trumps in our research before our holiday. Tucked away in the alleys of the old town it can be a little hard to find but it is worth searching for. The menu is hand written in Italian every day based...More

It was an interesting expedition trying to find the restaurant because at night it doesn't seem to be the nicest area in Genoa. But once you are there the terrasse is a really interesting setting in the middle of a piazza. You can watch the...More
