We were advised to go to this restaurant from a friend from Genova. The location was indeed very nice: we ate on the terrace and view was fantastic. The food, however... was nothing special. Served a bit too cold, the "ruote with pesto" were ok, while the "linguine" were sticky and you could only taste the cheese, not the seafood.... More

We hiked up here from our hotel in the old city (not recommended, we didn't realize it was straight uphill) and arrived hot, sweaty, and ready for some hospitality and a great dinner. It's a lovely place, with a large outdoor seating area overlooking the city. Families, couples, really a nice setting. We waited and waited for a menu, finally... More

Great location and atmosphere, warm and cozy. We had dinner under the candle light. It seems like they don't have a fixed menu: the menu is hand-written, and it was difficult for me to figure some of the word ^^ We started with aperitivo: spritz and homemade foccacia. The pasta which was taglioglini al nero di seppia and the dessert... More

Some friends had told us about this restaurant and the first time we tried to find it we drove past it. It is down the side of the main road on a little path. In the summer people eat outdoor with some views over the city. The service was excellent. We were lucky someone spoke really good English and made... More

This was my 3rd time in this restaurant. The food is always different, presented to a high standard, always with a twist even for the traditional dishes, such as pasta pesto Genova's favourite. The food is interesting and very tasty. Beautiful terrace really adds to the experience. The staff is welcoming and knowledgable of the right vines to acompany your... More

I've been working in the hospitality since many years now, hence I can be very fussy and a bit spoiled in terms of restaurant review, but I have to say that 'Maniman' experience has been lovely! First, the location is superb, not in the historical centre, but in the 'hype' and 'rich' Castelletto district -basically an area which dominates the... More
