Il Genovese - The Best Place to Taste the Pesto in Genoa - Eat Like a Local

Did you know the green pesto sauce hometown is Genoa?

I lately discovered this city during a blogtrip. And the cuisine was a very important compenent of the itinerary. I couldn't agree more. 

 

Pesto genovese

Although the green pesto sauce is world famous, Genoa might not.

But everybody visiting Genoa wants to find a spot where to taste the original: the Pesto genovese, I've been told.

Which better place than a restaurant that is producing the pesto hand-made with pestle and mortar using the most traditional ingredients?

My tip: il Genovese in Via Galata, 35

That's where I met Roberto who teached me about how to prepare the Pesto genovese sauce. By the way, Roberto is also organizing the Genova Pesto World Championship.
