Le Mura di Malapaga

If you are a meat lover, then Le Mura di Malapaga is the place for you. This restaurant is a paradise for those who enjoy the taste and texture of a perfectly cooked steak. The cut of meat here is simply amazing, and it can be accompanied by any type of sauce you desire. From classic peppercorn to creamy mushroom, the sauce options are endless. The tartare and tagliata are two of the highlights of Le Mura di Malapaga, prepared with the freshest ingredients and bursting with flavour. If you're in the mood for something a little more indulgent, be sure to try the grilled cheese platter.


Genoa and Liguria are famous for pesto, the delicious pasta sauce made from basil, pine nuts, olive oil, and parmesan. However, if you think you know pesto just because you buy it in a jar, think again! There is nothing quite like the taste of freshly made, vivid-green pesto served with the local pasta, such as the little twists of troffie or spaghetti-like trenette. Other specialities include farinata, a bread-like snack made from chickpeas, a must-try, and the local focaccia. The region's fish dishes, particularly salt cod-baccalà, are also highly recommended, as are mushroom dishes and stuffed meat dishes. If you're planning to eat out in Genoa, be sure to note that many restaurants close on Sunday and Saturday at lunchtime, so, plan accordingly.
