Exquisite experience: Restaurant “I CUOCHI” in Genoa

Permalink, 13 October 2017, by Sebastian Nickel

The children are back at school, the grapes are in the tanks and summer holiday is already far away... No doubt a new season has begun. This is precisely why I would like to invite you here to a wonderful moment of farniente.

Wonderful moments + farniente often means “gastronomic escapade” and this time we will take you to Italy. After a pilgrimage through the luculous regions of Piedmont and Lombardy, a final stopover is on the agenda: Genoa in Liguria. After a day of strolling through the narrow streets of the old town, we are looking for a restaurant and agree on the welcoming”I Cuochi".

Restaurant “I CUOCHI” à Gênes

After getting lost in the labyrinth of the old town several times, despite a map, we finally reach the desired location. Our eyes and nose are immediately enthusiastic, thanks to the open kitchen. We pass through a spacious but cozy dining room to a smaller room on the first floor where we wait for a free table with a glass of wine and the literary offer of this former postribolo.

For a starter, chili, gorgonzola, onion jam and iced pears accompany a fine beef tartar (cut with a knife!). After that, it becomes even better with a tuna fillet perfectly baked in bread and almond crust, while fresh water and a fine bottle of Pinot Noir from the Alto Adige help us against our thirst. Wonderful!

Conclusion: Genoa is not only an extremely charming Mediterranean city, but also a nice place to get close to one of the many Italian cuisine styles.
