From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. get your snack on in Piazza Caricamento at our food trucks, street kitchens and craft beer stands.

From bruschetta to focaccia, fried fish and gourmet panini, this is your chance to taste all the excellence of street food from across Italy all in one place, and wash it all down with the finest Italian craft beers.

What to eat: food trucks and street kitchens

  • Camugin Italian Street Food. A project founded in 2013 by a group of Genoese friends who are passionate about cooking. Today Camguin also features the important contribution of a young Genoese chef: Riccardo Nobile. At Slow Fish Camugin offers Italian street food panissa and fried fish.
  • Pastificio Novella. Founded in 1903 in Sori, a small town on the Ligurian Riviera in the province of Genoa, over the years their production has focused on fresh pasta and sauces of the local gastronomic tradition: trofie, pansoti, pesto and walnut sauce. You will find all of these in Pastificio Novella’s offerings, as well as the ever-present fish ravioli.
  • Zena Zuena. a pure Genoese heart and offerings based on quality raw materials: fruits and vegetables purchased from the Mercato Orientale; stone-ground flours from Molino Bongiovanni; fish supplied by local fisher cooperatives… The proposal, at the Porto Antico will focus on Ligurian focaccias, pizza and farinata.
  • There will be no shortage of guests from outside Liguria, either. Among them is Scottadito, from San Benedetto del Tronto, a food truck founded by three young friends who work and travel all over Italy with their Ape Piaggio, offering the three products that represent the symbols of street food in the Marche and Abruzzo regions: ascolane olives, arrosticini and fried fish.

What to drink: craft beers

  • Maltus Faber. What started as a home-brewing hobby in Genoa has become a professional brewery over time, expanding its offering and earning awards and recognition, including the Snail award from Slow Food’s Guide to Beers of Italy.
  • Birrificio dell’Altavia. Established in 2016, the brewery set itself a goal from the start: to use self-grown barley and hops. Its name comes from the path along the ridge, from the Alps to the Apennines, that runs throughout Liguria. Multiple award-winners, in 2022 they saw two of their beers recognized as Must-Have Labels in the Slow food Guide to the Beers of Italy.
  • Kamun. The production plant is located in Predosa, Alessandria, though they have two taprooms in Genoa, in the Old Town and the Foce area. Kamun beers are born from the belief that each type of malt, each yeast, each small addition of hops, produces unique and unmistakable aromas capable of awakening the senses.
