Lunch/Dinner recs for Genoa on a student budget
- chaitali Sep 22, 2012 02:02 AM
I'll be in Genoa for a day and I was hoping to get some some great recommendations for Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch. My dinner budget is 30E-40E max and lunch around 20E.
I prefer classic Genovese food but am trying to avoid seafood.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
For Saturday dinner, Sa Pesta
It is very popular, so go early if you can.
For Sunday lunch, rain or shine, I suggest you take the 25 minute train ride to Nervi and eat foccacia col formaggio at La Marinella. When you get off the train, you will see La Marinella between the train station and the sea. (It looks rather like a beached boat.) Just leave the station and you will find a path under the tracks to get there.
Scroll down this link and you'll get the gist of Sa Pesta:
You can google up foccacia col formaggio if you don't know what it is. Order a classic, without any additions. Order any meat (like sliced genovese salami) as a separate side dish.
