La Lanterna Curiosity - Ligurian culinary delights

Ligurian cuisine has a lot to offer. Regional specialties, from focacce through pasta to seafood or meat.

Genoese food is made up of dishes from the culinary tradition of Liguria, the region that includes ingredients linked both to local production and to imports from areas within the centuries, the Ligurian had frequent contacts.

Want to enjoy your meal as only the italians do? We will provide the best possible service to make sure your lunch or dinner will be a most memorable food experience. For us, typical Mediterranean cuisine means cooking with fresh and original ingredients from Italy and putting heart and soul into doing it.

Because of the history, roots and elements that compose it, we can say that the Ligurian culinary tradition is the real Mediterranean cuisine. A poor cuisine, created from country people, mountaineers and sailors, made of simple, common and affordable food, which, however, has become unique, sophisticated and full of ancient glories.
