This is a classic Genovese restaurant where the locals come for a good meal, or a special night out with the family, but it's by no means expensive. The menu and wine list are extensive, and the kitchen did a great job on the trofie al pesto and calamari fritti I had, Genovese classics both. From the number and variety... More

Popped into Piedigrotta for lunch with business colleagues. Great choice of food at reasonable prices. We had swordfish (good), lamb chops (excellent) and two pizzas (excellent and huge choice available). All were very tasty and well-presented. A good range of beverages available but the DAB German beer was excellent and satisfied us. Highly recommended for folk wanting a good lunch... More

Pasta, pizzas, risottos and fish/ meat specialities are of high quality. The times I have been there, I also experienced attemptive and cordial service. I would recommend this... More

On our first day in Genoa we decided to eat somewhere nearby the hotel and after reading sone reviews decided to try ristorante Piedigrotta. When we left the hotel the hotel clerc suggested the same restaurant. And what a pleasant place! We were a bit worried it would be pricy and too fancy for a family traveling with two teenagers,...

So glad we came here for dinner. Amazing everything. Fabulous waiter who noticed we didn't read Italian and brought us menus in English. So much authentic Italian food to choose from. Garlic pizza was so fresh it melted in our mouths, prawn and squash pasta from heaven and calamari so fresh it tasted like it had just been caught. Washed... More
