Genova

IL GUSCIO DI BOCCADASSE

Just along the coast from the main centre of Genova is the beautiful little sea side area called Boccadasse. Surrounded by old town narrow winding and steep streets, this little pebbled beach area is lively with music, bars and apertivos on the rocks. The old town here seems a lot more quaint and clean than the large old town in the centre of Genova. The houses here are in similar style to those you see amongst the Cinque Terre region and stand out amongst the rocks and the sea. This particular restaurant is a great place to try the traditional Genovese Pesto pasta and also the fried anchovies which are also a specialty. The pesto here truly is amazing and nothing like the pesto you get outside of Italy. Its a must try in Genova.
