Paella (12 euros per 1 person, possible to order from 2 person). Risotto is an Italian rice dish but this paella is very good.

Taste 4.5 stars Located at the ferry terminal (Terminal Traghetti) and the zone of Lanterna (name of the Lighthouse of Genoa), so it's not in the center. However, the balance of price and taste and its atmosphere value to visit. Who knows well seafood could be satisfied here.

A romantic restaurant with grace atmosphere

Since Genoa is a port city, it has an image of "men of the sea" and there are many quick-eat take out shops. However this restaurant has an elegant and very sweet atmosphere. It is popular among young women. Table settings and decorations, especially on the second floor are full of sophisticated sense of madame owner. It's suitable for women friends or date situation. On the way back to the center at night, you can see the illuminated Lanterna, a lighthouse of Genoa.

The plenty seafood is so nice!

The main cuisine of this restaurant is seafood, and ingredients are very large comparing other places! In general, dishes of fish cost a little bit high but here the price is less than average. The recommended Fritto misto (Fried seafood platter) contains not only large shrimps, but also some rare types of fish in a big portion. I think it would be better to order a little bit less than the number of person.

Also local cuisine of Liguria

They have a very wide range from the Genoa classic dishes to the Ligurian cuisine. Talking about a food of Genoa, Genovese paste is very famous: the creamy sauce of basil, pine nuts, and Parmesan for pasta. Please try the authentic home made taste. In addition, Panzotti pasta with walnuts source which is presented in the picture, chickpeas farinata (from the appearance it may look like a thin omelet, but no egg is used) and focaccia al formaggio (cheese sandwich of focaccia) are also excellent with beer.

The first owner of this restaurant was the Italian's first astronaut!

Italian's first astronaut, the Genovese Franco Malerba flied into the space on July 31, 1992 as one of the members of space shuttle Atlantis. Later he became the owner of this restaurant. The name "LE SCUDERIE DELL'ASTRONAUTA" means "Stable of the astronaut". Pizzeria and beer house on the ground floor were originally old stables, now transformed. Here you can enjoy a joyful time with several friends, with a beer mug in one hand and pizza in another.

Visit to the Lighthouse and lunch, for Saturday nights it is recommended to reserve

This restaurant is not located within a walking distance from the center, but if you use a public transport like bus, it takes less time. Di Negro is the nearest subway station and walk just 600m from there. For Saturday nights, it might become full, so I recommend you to reserve for the case. If you come to lunch, you can combine with the visit to the Lanterna (Lighthouse of Genoa). There is also a 4 star hotel NOVOTEL GE-OVEST near around.

from ITALY
We recommend "Le Scuderie"!

It's not popular for tourists because of its location, however they offer you very delicious meals and relaxing atmosphere. I recommend the fish dishes. The upper floor is filled with lovely goods. You would be mesmerized! Desserts of chef Marco receive high reputation, so on good weather days it's also suitable to take a break at the terrace cafe.
