A place with loads of character! Had a wonderful lunch experience at di Colombo, thanks to the great food and wine, the warm and friendly hosts, and the cozy and charming atmosphere.

Tucked down a side street, this small restaurant offers good local food. Prices reasonable. No English menu but staff wiling to translate.

The restaurant is located in side street in old city center of Genoa. The street when it is located and exterior of the restaurant do not look nice, we thought that would be disappointed with the choice. But it was not right feeling.
The restaurant is small and nice with short menu list but quality of the food is excellent.
Food is fresh, full of flavor, authentic Genoese but with some interesting changes/interpretations. And desserts were perfect. Pear in red wine was so great that we ordered double portion! And not to forget, owner and the staff were very nice!

My wife and I booked for New Years Eve after seeing the reviews on tripadvisor. It was a fantastic decision! From starters to deserts food was of the highest quality, fresh and beautifully put together combinations. We were recommended a local, value for money, but very smooth red wine. The wine list was very affordable. The food was typical local food and we would recommend it to any of our friends.

Lovely atmosphere with relaxing music in the background led to a very intimate feeling. The owner translated the menu to English for us. The food was really well made and fresh and was absolutely delicious and was paired with a lovely wine. Prices were very reasonable too, we paid about €75 for the two of us - starter, 1st course, 2nd course, desert, coffee and a bottle of wine. The chef popped by and helped us with menu too.
Hope to return next time we are in Genoa. So glad we chose to have our last meal of 2016 here!
