I had a tour with Annalisa and she was a great guide! She showed me some hidden parts of Genoa and we had great food. We visited 5 places and I fell in love with pesto sauce
The tourist will more specifically taste some of the following specialties in our Genoa Food Tours (according to products availability and the type of tour booked):
Pasta with Pesto: classic basil Pesto sauce was born in Genoa. You will have the chance to taste the authentic recipe made of local fresh basil and pine nuts, we ensure it will be the most delicious you'll ever have!
Savoury pastries: thousands pastries in the world, but come taste our best ones into an old Sciamadda (a typical "takeaway" from the beginning of 20thCentury).
Focaccia with Cheese: 2 very thin layers of dough filled with "Stracchino", (a typical soft cheese from Recco, a small village next to Genoa). You will watch it in the making!
Fried Calamari: Genoa is a harbor city with a traditional seafood-oriented cuisine. Our tender fried squids will melt in your mouth!
Stockfish: cooked with pine nuts, potatoes and "Taggiasca" olives, a special recipe from Genoa!
Anchovies: freshly fished, traditionally one of the most famous fish of our Seas.
Frisceu: small fried pancake with vegetables. Best for entrees and appetizers.
Farinata: a delicious chickpea pancake cooked in a flaming oven. The best one is soft in the center with a lighty crisp coating.
Caffè and dessert: Italian coffee rituals expect you ending your meal with an Espresso coffee, you might like to taste instead our Panera, a delicious creamy semifreddo flavoured with coffee.

We had a spectacular tour with Federico. We saw many beautiful areas of the city and ate so much amazing food. Federico was very friendly and informative, and was great with the five kids (all under age 10) in our group. I would not hesitate...More
