Fresh homemade daily pastas are another big part of our menu, introducing within others the iconic Pansoti, an homemade dumpling filled with spinach, ricotta cheese, chards and spices and than served with a delicate walnut sauce!

Last but not least... the pesto sauce. You will be able to experience the real pesto alla Genovese, the sophisticated but humble balance of local organic sweet basil, pine nuts, parmigiano cheese and Ligurian extra virgin olive oil served on thinly homemade handkerchief style pasta... the Mandilli.

Fresh seafood, grass fed steaks and much more is waiting for you at Riviera Focacceria Italiana.

La Focaccia

The focaccia recipe it is widely associated with Genova and the Ligurian cuisine.As the tradition spread, the different dialects and diverse local ingredients resulted in a large variety of bread.

Due to the number of small towns and hamlets dotting the coast of Liguria, the focaccia recipe has fragmented into countless.

The most famous example is the specialty Focaccia Cheese which is originally from Recco, near Genova.
