The best pesto in Genoa !!! The pasta with nero di seppia is incredible! Recommendable!!!

True, pasta with el pesto or trophies is really a goodness

You can pay by card ..

yes

Good morning I can't contact you to book for lunch tomorrow, are there other telephone numbers? Thank you

They accept reservations only for groups of 6 and only on message to rock

Are they open in mid-August?

Yes!!

Can anyone give me an idea about prices? quantitatively

It is an inexpensive, abundant portions. I spent 35 in two with 2 first, 2 seconds (of fish) and a water.

Good evening, I wanted to know how to book at your local as it is all day that I try to call and no one answers me. Thanks Franca.

Accept reservations only for groups of more than 6 people

We were yesterday for dinner, and it was very good! Can anyone from the place recommend me a good and focacceria?

Bread and tulips .... In the center, search with Google ....

Can you park near?

There is paid parking in the aquarium area. Free in the center on Sundays, but not close, about a quarter of an hour on foot.

Are dogs accepted?

Dogs are accepted. However, I advise you to evaluate your choice because the environment is small and most of the time you share the table with other diners. Something more than pleasant at times, but I happened to witness scenes of people who did not like the presence of animals alongside.

closing day? thank you.

Definitely a must try!! Amazing ligurian pesto, very reasonable prices. We got lucky and were sat outside right away, but as we ate more and more people were waiting for a seat so I would recommend making reservations. Either way definitely worth it! They also sell their pesto, we bought a couple of jars to bring back to Milan with us. The focaccia con pesto is a must, their pesto is fresh and delicious. Our pasta dishes were both very good as well. Needless to say we will definitely be coming back next time we're in the area.

The traditional location is full of atmosphere , but be prepared to que. Their food is wholesome and packed full of flavor. It is probably the best pesto l have tasted. My wife seldom let's us come back to a restaurant when we are on holiday ,as you want to try everywhere, but we had to make a second visit here for lunch on the day we left Genoa last September. You can also buy their delicious pesto to take away. Very reasonable prices.

The place looks tiny when you walk in... But it has an incredible warm feel and actually feels spacious when you go to the seating area. Staff is so generous and warm, as customer you're their main focus! Very busy, always fully packed but nobody minds it! The food is just awesome! Had starters, pasta, seafood / vegetable... Dessert... All were just perfect! Thumbs up! And a 5-star every time!

Great food served quickly. Could have used a little seasoning in the pesto but still pretty good. Spaghetti vongole was perfect and had a generous portion of clams. Service is rude and charmless.

Athough there was a queue we did not have to wait for long however I have to mention the waiters could be nicer... The prices & portion of pasta is decent! We had focaccia e pesto for starter, trofie al pesto and fritto misto di mare. They were all delicious.

We also ordered a cheesecake and a tiramisu for dessert and the bill was €57 for 4 people which we thought was really good. Service was quick and we were so stuffed when we finished. When we walked out of the restaurant there was a long line of queue waiting outside to be seated. We were really lucky and really enjoyed the entire meal!

ONly 5 stars available here but they deserve more ! I was taken by one of the curators of the Banksy show after giving a talk and the Food AND the staff were amazing. Friendly & a TRUE , local eatery that I hope stays true to itself. Packed , in that nice friendly bubbly noisy way with small rooms full of tables on different levels , everyone loving their food and SO Reasonable. The following day I took a Milanese accountant there and another fabulous meal. A memorable ( for all the right reasons) TREASURE of a find.

The interior is poor. But it doesn't matter, because food is great, really great. And prices are so cheap, for two pasta, starter and 500 ml of wine we paid just 21 euros. The place is very popular, so be ready for waiting from 30 min to 1 hour. We are lucky and we didn't wait even minute. This place is not for romantic dinner and dates. It's very crowded and loud.

Excellent pasta and sauces. Fish goujons were superb. High rating is worth it. Calamari OK but not the best we've had. Service a bit rushed as there is a queue out the door, so get there for 7pm. Was asked to drink up and pay just after finishing our main which usually isnt a good sign for the future. Restaurant hot except for the Aircon part upstairs. Nice staff and very quick on service delivery. Eat and out!

Basic Italian home made dishes. They is always a wait, so be there early. They don't serve coffee, so you don't stay long. There are inexpensive. Good deal.

Perfect Genovese pesto pasta for reasonable price. I loved it. Staff was nice and kind. Book a table, if you can, otherwise you could face waiting. However they do take away service aswell, if you don't want to wait for a table. I could eat this pasta all day, grazie!

We had a typical dish with pesto and raviolis. Everything was super tasty for really good prices. Our waiter was very attentive and kind. This place is very small so if you arrive late you have to wait to get a table. If you are not starving is worth the wait.
