Simple and affordable cantine for lunch. Open only at lunchtime. Extensible menu with primo and secondo plus bread and a drink for eur10. House red 25cl is an option and is ok. Great value. Friendly and simple service.

There are not many places in Genoa that you can get a two course meal with bread and a drink (water or wine) for 10 Euros. This Trattoria does not pretend to be a smart restaurant. Instead it offers a wide range of cheap wholesome food served by friendly staff at very reasonable prices. Note that it opens most days... More

We read good things about this restaurant and the fact that it is right in the centre makes it very easy to get to. Only one word of warning: you most likely are going to have to wait a bit for a table, which we found immediately a good thing being the best indicator of a good place to eat!... More

It is a hidden small tratoria with average tasted food but surprisingly cheap . First impression as tourist is oh my God we discovered a "diamond" the perfect place where medium class Italians can eat every day but you have to compromise that you are not going to eat tasteless italian type food cooked by an Asian cook . Menu... More

Came here randomly as in the evening many restaurants are fully booked. Da Maria is a quite hidden place besides the big restaurants. Once you found it you definitely should not be shocked by the small room on the first floor. It does not look and feel like a 1st class restaurant as the interior have rustic charm. The menu...

Nice trattoria with good food, fast service & best of all decently priced. Euro$25.00 for 2 pax full course is definitely a bargain at dinner time. Will recommend this to anyone who cares for a good, cheap meal.

This family-run establishment leaves much to the imagination in terms of service, but I'm not sure what you would expect from a small family-owned business tucked away down Vico Testadoro. The staff speak little English and the menu is almost impassable as they're written up daily by hand in Italian, which is not the easiest to navigate! However, we muddled... More

Your waiter won't speak English, and the menu is in Italian. That would not be a problem, if the quality of the food and the service make up for it. Well, they don't! Surrounded by cold light and walls covered with bathroom tiles, you eat for little money and you get what you pay for. The canteen of your school... More

Went twice to da Mario in a seven day visit to Rapallo. Lovely home made pasta dishes and good fish and sea food. Helpful service from the owners son . Good atmosphere enhanced by the quirky behaviour of the older waiter.

My partner and I went there twice on a recent trip to Genoa. The first time we had pasta. Very basic but great value for money. The second time we had a fried cod dish with chips. The meal came within two minutes and was dried up and very doughy. The cod was battered and the chip looked and tasted... More
