of Carbone Family
Recco is the gateway to the beauties of the Riviera di Levante: Camogli, Portofino, Rapallo and so forth… That’s why enjoying a meal at “Manuelina” is a tradition for travellers driving the Aurelia. The Carbone family has been running this famous restaurant for ages. They have improved their business acquiring a hotel and a “focacceria”. The restaurant decoration is rusticelegant, and the menu is based on fish, vegetables, and mushrooms.

Corzetti dei Fieschi alle quattro stagioni
Manuelina is famous not only for its cheese "focaccia" - the pride of the town, but also because she upholds the traditional "Levante" recipes. This is the case for "corzetti", disc-shaped egg pasta. Once, noble families used to emboss corzetti with their family shields. Sauces to pair corzetti are according to seasons: vegetables in Spring; herbs and pine nuts in Summer; "porcini" mushrooms in Autumn; stuffed olives in Winter.
