​Murena Suite

Genova
illy
On the grand Via XX Settembre street, with tall arcades lining both sides of the street, is Murena Suite. With so many cafés, restaurants and shops it would be difficult to choose one over another, but Murena Suite is well worth being a little discriminating.

Murena Suite is long and thin, instantly creating a buzzing atmosphere, busy with people dining, relaxing with a coffee or grabbing a quick espresso. The sleek interior has a minimal but warm aesthetic, tastefully decorated without any pretension. A single antique golden cherub (a traditional Genovese good luck charm) welcomes you as you enter and is clearly watching over the quality of the fine espresso.

A single barista skilfully managed the customers at the bar, and as with any good barista, ours was happy to speak with his customers while making and serving espresso as if by pure instinct. But pure instinct alone does not explain how Murena Suite got the maximum rating (3 out of 3 “coffee beans”) from Gambero Rosso - it took hard work and dedication to quality through many years. Murena Suite is the proud winner of the “illy & Gambero Rosso Bar of the Year” in 2010 and kept their 3 “coffee beans” rating until present day. There aren’t many better ambassadors out there for the quality that a competent café can get from the classic illy bar blend. Whether you are looking to sit for a full Italian meal, grab a quick espresso, or anything in between, we are sure that Murena Suite will certainly delight.

Murena Suite, Via XX Settembre, 153-157, 16121 Genova.
