  • La Lanterna in Riomaggiore

    Vernazza Restaurants

    This was the best food we ate during a four week trip in Italy! This small restaurant is over looking Riomaggiore harbour, a couple of minutes walk from the train station. The friendly owner is flamboyant and multi-lingual, making all feel welcome. Try to get a table on the balcony. We ate there 2 days in a row on our first trip and went back...

  • Zeffirino Kulum

    Camogli Restaurants

    On our first night in Camogli as we walked along the promenade - we decided to eat here because of the outside, sea side dining - the tall apartment buildings standing side by side, facing the sea.  My friend started with a carpaccio dish and I had grilled squid salad. My friend carpaccio was delicious - my grilled squid salad was fresh, simple,...

  • Ristorante "Moresco"

    Liguria Restaurants

    As the picture indicates, we gained some color on our last day in Italy. We were at Levante Beach for two hours, did some last minute shopping, and spent three hours EATING A SUPERIOR DINNER AT RISTORANTE MORESCO . This restaurant has such a romantic atmosphere with its frescoes on the walls, with its great Italian music in the background, and with...

  • osteria di vico palla

    Genoa Restaurants

    Very popular with locals and visitors, Antica Osteria di Vico Palla was full when we turned up one lunchtime during the Christmas period. Not having a reservation wasn't a problem, though, and we were happy to wait the five minutes in their cosy hallway. This isn't a place to come if you want extremely attentive service or to have a leisurely chat...

  • taverna del capitano

    Manarola Restaurants

    We had lunch here and had the best pizza I have had in Italy. And across the street a great wine shop. From the Riomaggiore train station go straight up the hill about halfway and on the right there is a pizzeria, on the left a nice wine shop. The subject saying taverna del capitano is not correct but I cannot make it go away. (sorry) We had...

  • Porto Prego

    Camogli Restaurants

    The hotel had recommended this place our first night. This restaurant is located near the harbor on the west end of the promenade - there is seating outdoors - the decor is simple. For antipasti I had anchovies with lemon (10.00) and my friend had mussels (10.00).   Anchovies were in season and very fresh - very simply prepared, lemon and a drizzle...

  • Paganini

    Chiavari Restaurants

    Chiara led us to this restaurant during our stay in Chiavari. The restaurant has delicious food for a reasonable price. The interior is kinda basic, not a place for a romantic evening, but we didn't mind because the company was good :-). According to Chiara the service is very friendly but the waiters had a day off and the owner who served us was a...

  • sa pesta

    Genoa Restaurants

    Freshly off the train and having just dropped our bags off at the hotel, we went out in search of lunch. We walked high and low (literally- the streets of Genova are full of ups and downs) before reaching this gem of a restaurant. From the street we could see that the trattoria-style interior was packed with locals sitting on wooden stools dining...

  • Falcone

    Chiavari Restaurants

  • Maria

    Genoa Restaurants

    We got an enthusiastic tip for Maria's restaurant from our hotel, but we had a very mixed experience there. The atmosphere is REALLY authentic--gym basement decor, OK if you know it is what you are after. That was not our problem. Problems were (1) it was pretty hard to figure out what you were going to get from handwritten, Italian only menu, and...

  • Vittorio

    Genoa Restaurants

    Since I had the honour to be guided around the city by the person with the best Genoa page, my choice is identical to his: da Vittorio! Really recommendable - good, vivid and affordable, plus the waiting period is very short (about 10 minutes), so even the hungriest can choose it over fastfood. Stockfish a la Genovese. The best of Northern and...

  • LE CANTINE SQUARCIAFICO

    Genoa Restaurants

    Here you can taste the "TRUE TYPICAL PESTO" The basic ingredients of pesto sauce are common to all these recipes: fresh basil leaves, cheese (either Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino), pine nuts, garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper. The great debate, and the great fun, about pesto is deciding on the proper proportions with which to combine these....

  • pizzerie

    Genoa Restaurants

    This pizzeria is not deep in the Old Town, but it's easily reachable with the funicular of Sant'Anna, and I really suggest it! The pizza is really good, as well as the "focaccia al formaggio" and the "farinata". The atmosphere is very friendly, at the fist floor of an apartment. They serve good beers and very good desserts. The bill is probably one...

    Genoa Restaurants

    This is a very old restaurant, opened in 1948 and "famous" in Genova for their lobster dishes! But you can eat also many other typical specialities of Genova, like pansoti and trofiette al pesto... but of course lobsters, crabs and seafood is their best deal! You can choose among more than 150 different kinds of wine and both "a la carte" and...

    The Taverna Storica degli Alabardieri is a new restaurant/pub just opened at the end of 2003. It's really beautiful at the ground (and underground) floor of an old house in the heart of the historic centre of Genova. All the atmosphere is typically medieval around the stone walls: armatures, halberds, lances... really a very nice place! And you can...

  • Il gran ristoro

    Genoa Restaurants

    Small, you'd better expect a real long queue at lunch time (from 1 to 2 PM) because everyone in Genoa knows 'gran ristoro'. In the last two years other shops nearby begun to propose the same things, but you can tell the real quality from the queue! sandwiches, but real the best sandwiches you can eat! If yo're not vegetarian I suggest 'porchetta in...

In Liguria, focaccias are readily available in every bakery and some shops are even specialised in this product.The focaccia alla genovese is a Ligurian speciality (fugassa, as they call it here). It is simple, but tasty and very...

    Most of the food available in the Cinque Terre villages that we saw were pizzerias, cafes and gelaterias, with maybe 2 or 3 sit-down restaurants in each town (aside from, maybe Monterosso, which may have more available). Most menus of course revolved around seafood. I'm partial to the focaccia sandwiches that are widely available all over Italy....
