Tables, small tables, counters... for all tastes and... let’s say... for all pockets!: from the old fried-food shops - in dialect called "fito faeto" meaning " soon done"- that anticipated of many centuries the so called fast food restaurants, to the high quality restaurants with international reputation. Places such these can be found in many areas of the town, especially in Portoria, in Sottoripa, near Via XX Settembre and Piazza Corvetto.
There are also historic places with a long tradition and modern ones made out of old premises.
Trattorie and "inns with food" with their pergola viewing the sea or clinging up to the mountains near some Sanctuary but also the so many prestigious special restaurants concealed in the labyrinth of the small alleys, facing the sea, rooted in the City and in the 9 Town Districts.
In conclusion we have to say that there is a culture of "taste" spreading all over the area and especially in a town like Genoa, which is like a bridge on the Mediterranean Sea and a melting pot where different cultures and different people meet, in fact along with specialities from the local tradition you can enjoy delicatessen as well as food and wine from every country of the world.
The offer of restorative facilities in Genoa includes also gourmet restaurants, typical local restaurants, international restaurants, classical Italian restaurants and pizzerias which have obtained the "Ospitalità Italiana", the quality certification promoted by the Italian Chambers of Commerce.
