My interesting walking tour in Genova stopped not only by a bakery to taste focaccia genovese but also here : by a fresh handmade pasta maker : PASTA FRESCA FABIO & ALESSIA run by two brothers that run this family business in the historical center (have a look to the ceilings :old afrescoes overlooking the laboratory 😍😍 & a nice small garden in the courtyard of this old noble palace!🔝🔝)
Not just simple pasta as trofie or tagliatelle but also filled ones with spinach or meat like ‘pansotti ‘ so yummy !! or small tortellini shape called ‘ plin’ filled with basil or chestnut gnocchi to be dressed with pesto sauce : a perfect mix of sweet & salted.
A special kind of pasta called ‘croxetti’ on which can be printed our name or our cots of arms on their surface : a dough made with flour , garlic, egg,salt ,basil ,majoran,white vinagre from an old receipe of Sergio’s family who first opened this shop about 40 years ago.
Not only pasta to cook at home but even traditional ligurian dishes ready to be eaten as fried enchovies or code fish to take away & different sauces to be matched with pasta : a paradise for foodies & pasta lovers like me!!
