Genoa Traditional Food Tour possible tastings

Expect a full meal or even more! The food choice depends on season and availability. Be ready for an immersive food experience in a relaxing atmosphere! Here is a list of our Genoa Traditional Food Tour possible tastings:

  • Pasta with pesto: the typical basil pesto sauce was born in Genoa. You’ll have the chance to taste the authentic recipe made with local fresh basil and pine nuts.
  • Savoury pies: there are thousands of savoury pies in the world, but come to Genoa and taste our best ones into an old sciamadda, a typical genoese takeaway restaurant from the beginning of 20th Century.
  • Focaccia with cheese (“Focaccia al formaggio”): just two very thin layers of dough filled with stracchino, a typical Italian cheese. The best recipe is from Recco, a small sea town close to Genoa.
  • Fried squids: Genoa is an harbour city with a traditional sea food-based cuisine. Our tender fried squids will melt in your mouth!
  • Stockfish: the fish is cooked with pine nuts, potatoes and Taggiasca olives. This is a special recipe from Genoa!
  • Anchovies: they are cooked freshly fished. In fact, the anchovies are traditionally one of the most typical Ligurian Sea fishes.
  • Frisceu: small but tasty fried pancakes with vegetables. Perfect as an entrée and as appetizers.
  • Artisan ice cream (“gelato”): in a gourmet ice cream shop, you’ll taste one of the best artisan gelato in town, featuring both traditional and innovative tastes.
  • Espresso: the Italian food tradition expects you ending your meal with an espresso coffee.
