Hands down the best canned tuna I've ever had. Always in nice meaty chunks, and the taste is out of this world.

Love it. Best tuna that we can get in the U.S. Closest thing to the freshness of the tuna we bring back from Italy.

Absolutely adore the yellowfin tuna with olive oil. I can eat it straight without adding any extras, it also is extremely healthy! I never knew I could LOVE tuna, especially without mayo!

Wow!! First time buyer, and I’ll never go back to other company. Light, flaky and moist yet flavorful. Albacore Tuna with Olive Oil is delicious. Genova is my new brand in seafood.
