Focaccia col Formaggio
Recco is especially famous for its signature Focaccia col Formaggio, or cheese filled Focaccia bread. We know it sounds too simple to be a renowned dish, but take our word for it – it’s messy, gooey, cheesy, rich, and far too good to turn down! Recco even holds an annual Focaccia Festival, which just happened to commence on the very day that we arrived in Recco. Needless to say, we took it as a positive sign of the feasting to come during our stay.
One of the best meals we had in Italy was on our first night in Recco at a great family owned place called Vittorio’s, run by twin brothers Gianni & Vittorio. They were the ideal Italian hosts – very welcoming and excited to indulge us with Italian culture. We of course started off with some Focaccia col Formaggio, and then Mattia, our waiter and Gianni’s son, treated us to an authentic Italian antipasti of White & Cured Anchovies.
