"The Osteria above the sea" was born over ten years ago, founded by the Leone family, Maria and Jericho, the parents and Nicola the son, now forty years old.
And the venue is always in front of the Porto Antico, in Sottoripa, in the heart of the historic center of Genoa, a stone's throw from Fabrizio De André's favorite 'Sciamadda'.
And since its inception, it cares about Ligurian products, such as oil and wine, with a list dedicated exclusively to wines produced in Liguria.
The menu also has Genoa and Liguria at its heart, with a rotation that, starting from the dishes of Genoese cuisine, ranges with particular attention to fish, pesto and sea sauce.
Everything is produced inside the tavern, from appetizers to desserts, thanks to the experience of the Leone family and, in particular of father Gerico, who has a long attendance in the sector, also gained in the galley and in the kitchens of cruise ships. and not only.
