    The meal was fabulous, from the amuse bouche through the dessert. Some of the pairings were completely unexpected and truly delightful. This Michelin star is truly deserved.

    We enjoyed a dinner here, the dining room is very interesting, in a historic building with murals painted on the ceiling and walls. It was once part of the Doge's Palace. There is a seafood and a meat tasting menu, although you can mix the two. We went with the seafood, and the wine pairing. The food was excellent and creatively displayed. Sarah, the pastry chef, displays her creations in a "magic box". Paulo and Alberto were in charge of our table, and pairing the wines, they are friendly, professional and excellent. The week before we dined at a Michelin star restaurant in Turin, it was fun to compare the two experiences. The Cook at Cavo has a strong team and is an experience to enjoy.

    The food and service was really great! We had one tasting menu of each with the wine pairing. The wine pairing is a great deal for only €50 extra for 5 wines. The decor was great and the dining room was beautiful but the room temperature was extremely warm (around 88 degrees Fahrenheit) to the point my partner had to leave dinner early and go back to our hotel. We asked the waitstaff to turn the air conditioning on but they declined. I recommend coming in the cooler months when heat won’t be an issue!

    Extremely friendly and helpful staff, pretty building inside. As for the food , amazing is a word I would use. A very special place to visit, along with your tasting menu, lots of goodies are served in between. Excellent choice of wine too. Couldn't fault it to be honest.

    Service was excellent from the moment of arrival. It was fairly quiet which can sometime have the effect of service being poor but this was not the case. Very attentive. Food was first class and very creative. The wine pairing too offered some delicious wines to accompany each course. I would highly recommend.

    Beautiful interior, in the historic city of Genova. Delicious food, which was both modern but with a nod to classic Genovese food. Excellently paired wines. Overall a wonderful experience

    My first Michelin experience and I gotta say, prob my last. I felt like I didn’t belong there. An air of pretentiousness sat all around me and it was kind of uncomfortable. The head guy server was super nice and so was the smaller male one but the lady server seemed quite shocked that I could be in such an expensive place and it showed in her mannerisms. The cook also made a point to have conversations with the other three occupied tables and all I got was a “tutto bene?” Again, I really felt out of place.
