What to Expect

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.

  • Pizza: our gourmet pizza, soft and thick, flavoured with fresh local toppings. You will taste the best pizza in Genoa!
  • Bruschetta: a grilled slice of bread, covered with many different toppings, such as "Pesto", certainly the most tasty and easy to find in Genoa. Perfect with an ice-cold beer.
  • 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.
