Reviewed 29 May 2017

On the Via Ravecca, the restaurant is in the old port area near to the lively Piazza Erbe. The staff are friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is a notch above the mainstream bistro style eateries. A very enjoyable experience and recommended.

I was surprised that no waiter or waitress spoke English. It will be a bit of problem if you don't speak Italian. They do have English menu but clarifying wine or food will be difficult. It may compromise service a little.

We had a bottle of Bolgheri red which was decent. Robert Parker apparently rated it 91.

The spaghettoni and corzetti with king prawns were both good. The mandilli with pesto was decent. Pasta was fresh. I have never tasted the three pasta varieties before.

The deconstructed tiramisu did not quite work. The chocolate flan with coconut ice cream is actually a lava cake, which is quite ordinary.

In short, a place for interesting pasta.

This place provides you with a nice mix of traditional local dishes with a creative touch prepared with high quality ingredients. It is family run and everybody was extremely kind. I had no reservation and got the last table. So if you want to go, book well in advance. Book your table at the lower level which is nicer. The sformatino di verdure as an entree was excellent as all the rest, including the millefoglie as a dessert. Good price-quality relationship. Highly recommended.

Found this little place on a small street by chance. Looked simple, average prices. But the food exceeded our expectations. We opted for pasta dishes, which had great flavor with beautiful presentation. The kitchen is run by a young chef who apparently adds his creativity to Italian food. The portions are not large so for the hungry ones it's better to go for two courses. For dessert we had a deconstructed tiramisu, another creative interpretation of a popular dessert. Everything was very delicious. And the staff is friendly and attentive. Would definitely come back here next time we're in town.

Came here in a busy night, causing a slow service. Pasta seemed to be overcooked for my tastes, and the meat was a little bit chew, or somehow not properly cooked. Average prices.

Gentile cliente ci scusiamo per il servizio lento come descrive, ma come dice lei in una serata movimentata e cucinando tutto espresso i tempi d'attesa si possono leggermente allungare ... sulla cottura della pasta specifico che noi serviamo solo pasta fresca perciò sicuramente lei non conosce la cottura della pasta fresca ...e per concludere le carni è il primo cliente che contesta la cottura non appropriata ...forse non ha specificato che cottura particolare lei gradisse ... La invitiamo comunque a tornare se ha piacere per provare il nostro pesce e i nostri piatti genovesi ...
