I was taken here by a friend living in Genoa. As he told me I was expecting a huge surprise and even tho I enjoyed the dinner a lot (raw fish was great), something in the ambience and the athmosphere left me a little bit disappointed.

We had a great dinner at Scalvini. The chief started by coming out to explain the specials and take our order in English. He was very helpful with recommendations and accommodating. Every dish was delicious. The pesto pasta was out of this world.

Super friendly staff, cozy typical place where locals go. Definitely try the sea food, and don't worry, the owner herself will offer you some help if you're not used to it...

In spite of its not very good location and the way it looks from the outside, this restaurant is one of my favourite. Staff extremly nice, not always common in this area, service very good and an extremly good food, always with a special dish of the day that it is really special. I have been here already three times... More
