Went here and the food was ok, however the staff appear to deliberately mislead the English. Menu was hand written so when you asked about anything he wrote numbers on his pad which you assumed was the price! When the bill came out we were completely shocked and all of a sudden he didn't understand a word of English when we questioned it! Food was good if you like rich food cooked in a lot of butter, but make sure you know how much they are going to charge before ordering! They also charge a cover of €2 per person for knives and forks. We were also the only people in the restaurant not to get bread!

Were here 3 times during our stay in Genova in July. Nice location nearby water, calm a d quite place, great food & vine and friendly personnel. Very positive experience, service was very good (got some snacks for vine even when kitchen was closed). Would love to visit once again when am back to Genova.

I can't believe this restaurant has a certificate of excellence. We waited 50 minutes for our first course, and our seafood risotto contained mussels and pippis only. The staff appeared only half interested.

Found by accident while wandering around in the evening. Had given up on finding a traditional trattoria, but this place fitted the bill except its located in a modern premises Located just across the road from the Darsena Metro stop in a development on the new pier or jetty near the Aquarium along the Via Gramsci. It looks out on a marina.

Food was good but service was great with recommendations and descriptions of the food. As we did not speak Italian this was most welcome. Local Ligurua white wine went really well with bruschetta starters, and we had great main pasta dishes. House specialties are actaully seafood but we did not take those.

Highly recommended for food and atmosphere, felt really welcoming.
