Very good food and nice personal. Service was extremely nice. The restaurant was complitely full but they opened a table for us. Home made Genova's cooking, grandmother's style. It's fresh to see the staff enjoy what they do. One appetizer, two maincourses, dessert, two glasses of wine and bottle of water for 64 euros. Reservation recommended.

Really loved the atmosphere here. A blackboard with lots of choice - interesting Genovese dishes. Friendly service. A bit rough round the edges but that is what a local place should be.

The food is always good, Ligurian cuisine at its best. Unfortunately waiters can be moody/rude and the place tends to be loud.

Food is barely decent, definitely too expensive for what it really is. Service is underwhelming--we were asked to swap tables in the middle of our meal, and we had to carry all of our plates, glasses, bread basket, etc by ourselves. Not to mention that we had barely finished eating dessert when the waiter explicitly asked us to leave. Avoid... More

The good thing, is they have space to welcome a big group (20ppl). Food is good, but maybe not the best I've had in genoa.

Recommended by a business relation to go there for local Italian seafood. He even recommended a certain house speciality that I can not remember (nor was it available :( ). Other reviews on here on TA were generally very positive and the place was was filled with locals but I do not share the same opinion. My pasta with pesto,... More

We were only in Genoa for the day. Genoa was one of the port stops on our MSC Cruise. While reading about what to do in Genoa, I found Antica Osteria di Vico Palla Restaurant. This was exactly what we wanted to do in Genoa. Eat. The restaurant was a short walk from the port. I would suggest printing off... More
