Leaving above this take away is a serious menace to any dietary purpose...but also a very handy solution for last minute friends coming home. And yes they have the best farinata in town.

This place is cute, friendly, very reasonably priced and serves some damn tasty focaccia! Loved the whole grain one with courgette and tomatoes. Yeah! Good stuff! Happy boy! Also, it's like 2 minutes from the Casa Museu Boschi. Also a treat.

I have been long looking for a good Focaccia place in Milan for a long time but without success, as it is difficult to find good quality Focaccia outside of Liguria. I finally found it. Focaccerie Genovesi has outstanding Focaccia even for someone like me that grew up with Ligurian standards. You can enjoy both delicious regular focaccia, as well... More

Great, inexpensive focaccias, pizza and pies to take out. The guy behind the counter was really friendly, spoke decent English and explained to us what the different dishes contained. We tried several, and they were all very good.

We sought this place out due to positive TA reviews and were not disappointed. Super tasty focaccia and very friendly proprietor who gave us all the attention we needed despite our lack of Italian language ability. Great experience.

Great food with a friendly atmosphere in an unassuming location. Try not to walk past it as it's quite small. Once you know it's there you'll never walk past without going in again!

This is a food shop that sells a very limited selection of baked focaccia and uncooked ravioli, not a restaurant.

A must in the shopping district of Corso Buenos Aires in Milan. There is no better snack than a warm, delicious focaccia after the long walk trough the shops of Corso Buenos Aires. Focaccerie Genovesi, in Via Plinio 5 (like 1min walk from the Lima metro station) is a very small focaccia shop where you are always welcome nicely by... More

Ive tried just about all the raviolis (filled pasta) and they're great to.take home, cook in boiling water for a few minutes then serve with your own tomato sauce, broth, or their walnut sauce or pesto. The focaccia and pizzas are delicious....also try the patagrano which is a soft focaccia made with parmigiano cheese...yumm!

Really really good, smelt the food as I walked past and I had to double back on myself, also nearly got run over but well worth it! It wasn't a mistake, really nice food and cheap. I couldn't speak the language but had the most fun eating and laughing. Bought some back to the UK and the whole family loved... More

For over 30 years Focaccerie Genovesi is the establishment of the focaccia in Milan. Created by Gregory & C many years ago with the idea of bringing the flavors of Liguria in Milan. In many years of activity many products have been added, but the best-of-brand Focaccerie Genovesi remain "gruel" "focaccia with stracchino" "focaccia simple." The stores in Milan: Via Plinio 5 gestista by Gigi Via Santa Croce one managed by the founder Gregory A take-away menu at lunch, as a snack or for dinner good and rich. Simple focaccia, with olives and onions. Porridge Ceci (the original) Focaccia at Stracchino Pizza (but try) Also a lot of products of the earth Ligure like homemade pasta, olive oil, olives, pesto and walnut sauce. At Focaccerie Genovesi what you will find is certainly the courtesy, the joy and the desire to cook. Good appetite at all:-)
