It is chain restaurant so maybe you think it is nothing special but the location is great if the weather allows you to sit outside. It is breezy and you can admire the sea and the yachts.

Pietro Romanengo’s history began in Genoa in 1780 when Antonio Maria Romanego opened a colonial spice shop in Via della Maddalena. Antonio Maria Romanengo, born in Voltaggio in 1751 had two sons, both of them, Stefano and Francesco, continued their father’s business. Whilst keeping the same shop they dedicated the production to candied fruits and dragees, according to the old Genoese traditional manufacturing and they also began producing the “new” French confectionery and chocolates. Negozio storico di Romanengo, via Roma GenovaTwo shops were opened in Genoa, a shop in San Siro and a workshop in Piazza Campetto, the workshop would then go on to expand to all five floors of the building. The two brothers parted in two separate businesses and Stefano kept the two shops and the factory in Piazza Campetto. In 1850 Stefano Romanengo left the business to his son Pietro. In the meantime, in 1805, the Genoa Chamber of Commerce and Crafts was founded, and Pietro, who was already working with his father, registered the business with the Chamber of Commerce in 1829. Thus the name “Pietro Romanengo fu Stefano” was born, Pietro chose the name to remember his father on the shop’s sign, the name is still the same to this day, together with the logo, a dove with an olive branch (a symbol of peace in the wake of the Napoleonic wars) He also introduced the company’s blue paper packaging which was once used to wrap sugar cones.

Voted best ice cream shop in Italy in 2015...what else?! In questo locale di vico Superiore del Ferro, Giuseppe Armando Profumo aprì la sua prima pasticceria in centro, sulla direttiva naturale che univa il porto ( dal quale arrivavano le materie prime ) con la collina di Castelletto, zona residenziale della borghesia. Quando il figlio Mario rilevò la vicina pasticceria Villa, questo divenne il naturale magazzino della stessa, fino al 2004, quando il locale ebbe bisogno di ristrutturazione. Durante i lavori riaffiorarono le memorie affettive e si decise di riportarlo locale di vendita su strada. L'esperienza maturata in pasticceria accelerò il sapere dei gelati ed in poco tempo si aprì l'attuale scommessa commerciale, vinta nonostante gli scetticismi di molti sull'ubicazione. La gelateria è aperta dal Martedì al Sabato dalle 12,00 alle 19,30 con orario continuato.

Another historical Genoese shop. La ditta "Giovanni Rivara fu Luigi" è un'antica teleria nel centro di Genova, in piazza San Lorenzo. Dalle sue vetrine fanno capolino le strisce di marmo bianco e nero della Cattedrale; al suo interno un mondo che dal 1802 coccola genovesi e non. Biancheria, teli, tovaglie, tessuti per camicie, lenzuola, coperte, copriletti, plaid, accappatoi, spugne per il bagno e mezzeri genovesi originali: tutto è colore e cura per i dettagli, con la massima attenzione alla qualità. Molto più di un negozio di tessuti: da Rivara, l'atmosfera ha la leggiadria del lino d'Irlanda, il calore del cachemire, la cura dei dettagli del macramè. Una storia che dura da più di duecento anni, una conduzione familiare che intreccia cinque generazioni come delicati fili delle camicie Oxford. Tra gli arredi originali ottocenteschi, i tessuti al metraggio vengono poggiati sul lungo bancone in noce e misurati con gli antichi metri che riportano numerosi timbri, secondo la pratica ormai in disuso del controllo comunale. Qualsiasi siano i tuoi gusti in materia d'arredamento, la biancheria per la casa della ditta Rivara avvolge ogni stanza, dalla cucina al salotto, passando per la camera da letto e gli armadi, con uno stile personalizzato che abbraccia la tradizione genovese e profuma di Provenza, senza dimenticare la raffinatezza British.

Following the new architectural models of the time, Genoa's nobility had many palaces of great splendour designed and built within the historic centre. The number and magnificence of these gave rise to a peculiar aristocratic residential system, formalised in 1576 by a Decree of the Senate that issued an official list of the dwellings (List of Public Lodgings, also known as Rolli), recognising their unique value. The same decree compelled the owners of the homes to take turns in hosting state visits, in the absence of a royal palace. Host dwellings were chosen in accordance with the importance of the visiting guest: the higher the guest's noble rank, the more sumptuous the mansion that was required and the wealthier the family given the honour - and indeed the burden - of welcoming them. The area featured on the UNESCO list also extends to the part of the historic centre that runs through Via Lomellini, Piazza Fossatello and Via San Luca to Piazza Banchi, the mercantile heart of the old town: along this stretch lie some of the most important examples of the Palazzi dei Rolli, woven in the modern age into the mediaeval fabric of the city. To this day, the Palazzi dei Rolli still partly belong to private owners, while some of the buildings today house banks or offices. The best way to experience the allure of some of these dwellings up close is to take one of the guided tours organised by the city.

This is the largest maritime museum in the Mediterranean. The building of the Galata is the oldest surviving construction of the dockyard of the old Republic. In the 1600s, Genoese galleys were built here, and the city’s maritime tradition is reflected today in a museum where visitors can discover the age-old relationship between man and the sea. The innovative, engaging set-up features an authentic reproduction of a Genoese galley from the 1600s and of a Brig-schooner from the 1800s, the dramatic Sala Tempesta (Storm Room), the "Italian Transatlantic ships" exhibition, and over 6000 original artefacts that tell the fascinating adventure of man at sea, from the days of Christopher Columbus to the SS Rex.
