Full description

La Spezia is a small town, and one of the best places to stay while visiting the amazing Cinque Terre and other beautiful places like Porto Venere and Pisa. It has a mixed culinary tradition, coming from Liguria and Tuscany. You will dive into La Spezia Cinque Terre's food scene, enjoying traditional dishes and the best street food specialties. This dining experience incorporates five traditional and street foods served in different eateries. You will be starting with an entree, and ending with a typical Italian dessert or a delicious ice-cream. You will taste some of the following dishes on the tour: Sgabei - a small fried pancake made from bread dough. Mesciua - chickpea, beans and wheat grains soup, typical of La Spezia. Testaroli or panigacci - a sort of pancake, boiled and enriched with pesto, oil, parmesan cheese, and mushroom sauce (testaroli), alternatively baked, served with cheese and cured meat (panigacci). Pasta with walnut sauce - typical from Liguria. Fried Calamari and Anchovies - freshly fished locally and cooked directly by local fishermen. Farinata - a delicious chickpea pancake cooked in a wood oven. The best one is soft in the center with a lighty crisp coating. Ice cream or dessert.

Our guide Daniela was a fabulous host. The food was good. Quality was high, but quantity was average.

Sofia was a great guide, we were able to taste 5 typical dishes from Spezia and Liguria. Sofia knew a lot of things and perfectly perfectly French! A delight...

Béatrice was a fantastic host, she spoke French very well and was attentive. However, we were a little disappointed with the last fish restaurant. I recommend.
