Restaurant Zeffirino Genoa

A Genoese institution born in the 1930s

Family, passion and tradition are the pillars of Zeffirino’s identity. Eight decades after its creation, the restaurant, nestled on Via XX Settembre near the Monumental Bridge, proudly preserves the subtle echoes of its storied past. At the helm, Marco, Christiane, Sabrina, and Lucia honorably perpetuate the legacy established by their grandfather, Zeffirino Belloni, in 1939.


An exquisite culinary symphony

In the kitchen, chef Dario De Spirito and his team excel in creating high-quality cuisine, meticulously selecting every ingredient. The menu pays homage to Emilia-Romagna and its Genoese influences, featuring fresh fish, handmade pasta and Prà basil, essential for the preparation of Pesto Genovese, a dish Zeffirino proudly champions as an ambassador.
