If you are in Genoa you have to go here! Their pesto is incredible and super affordable! Staff are friendly and food comes quick also! Arrive before the opening time as there will likely be a line waiting already.

For 20 euros you get : 1 starter, 2 main courses (with the best pesto ever), a pichet of wine and 2 desert. The food is REALLY good!!

We were here for lunch and it seemed very popular with locals for a weekday lunch. Good, traditional Genovese food. Big portions. The bill for a lunch for two (one starter and two pasta portions), 1/2 l of wine and water was 25 euros.

I am often sceptical about restaurants, places who claim to be the best or that have won prices, awards etc... However, Cavour 21 totally deserve to have won the award for the best world championship. Their local pasta with pesto was simply intoxicating!!! Buon appetito...More

An authentic Genoese trattoria where you can share the table with someone you do not know. The service is polite and fast. The dishes I ordered arrived in a short time even with the full room. Excellent value for money.
