If you very enthusiastic about oysters and other crustaceans.. it is ok .. otherwise the seating is uncomfortable and the surrounding is really substandard.. service is good but certainly overpriced

Awesome meal,very helpful and friendly staff. Please visit,the food we ordered was awesome,very very fresh,the staff also took trouble of showing us the difference in the oysters. This is a family owned business,all the locals come here.

I think there are not many places with oysters and seafood of this quality in the region, I found only one other in Santa Margherita. Really good seafood, nice outdoor seating and very efficient service. A place to remember if one goes to Genova.

Started dinner with carpacchio which was tasty. Oysters were the pinnacle of dinner amd we should just have ordered more! The food was fresh and tasty on a cold winters evening but the patrons and service was warm and friendly.

If you like Oysters, than this is the place. Regarding all the other seafood it's of good quality but stantard variety. Still it's a good experience. The locations is also ok. Recommended for oyster lovers.

The Oysters were great, but you should only go there with a lot of time. To serve 10 oysters takes more than 40 minutes. The place was not full. I think they forget the customer.

Indarsena Oyster Bar is the only authentic "French style oyster bar" in Genoa, and one of the best in Italy. Gagge create a corner of Cote d'Azur on the dock of the Old Port. Importing directly from France every week 7-8 different kinds of oysters and various of shells, the restaurant offers real speciality for fans (also the famous Alaska King Crab !). But even those who don't appreciate coquillage, can taste steamed shellfish served cold with dips, or fish carpaccio, or soupe de poisson, or French cheeses and desserts provided by the best bakeries in Genoa.
