You need to queue to get in but well worth the ten minute wait. The choice of ingredients was overwhelming but the friendly staff advised me on what I should have and I wasn't disappointed. Best sandwich ever. Only downside is that there is very limited seating but ideal for a lunch on the go.

The paninis were yummy, and the location is good. The prices are a little bit on the upside. I would recomment this place :)

this little shop is a cult place. lots of different kind of sandwiches with toppins, dressing different from usuals. Next to the ancient harbour, the Aquarius, in the middle age part of Genoa. you can't get wrong...the line of people outside show this place.

Tiny little shop that holds 5 or 6 customers and a line that is 20 people deep outside. The line moves fast and the people behind the counter are fast and funny.

This is a great "deli" for a sandwich to go. The queue will tell you you found the right place! This is not a sit down restaurant although there are tables along the walk way just outside. You stand outside the door and await your turn to order Italian sandwich meats that are extraordinary. The counter people will not let... More

This place is a cult place. Located in the old port of Genoa is a must try paninoteca. It's not even what you can eat there but you as a tourist must go and feel the atmosphere of the lunch time in the old town of Genoa. Necessarily take the glass of wine together with your sandwich ;)

This is the place you must try for a sandwich for lunch and walk along the port. So many choices, if you are slightly unsure, just ask them for a recommendation. Cheap and tasty, a must, don't be put off if there is a queue.

Best little sandwich stand in Genoa. Tiny place. You might have to line up for a few minutes but there's a good reason this place is busy while others on either side of it aren't. Just ask the sandwich chef to wing it. He'll ask spicy or not, meat or not, and any allergies. There's wine and beer and tables... More

Simply beyond all expectations. You do not even need to place your order: just get into this tiny place, have a look at the incredible selection of hams, salamis, cheeses and just say clear and loud "pleeze feed me"...that's it, simple and straight. Then you will be asked if you have any allergy or wether you know any ingredient you... More
