Trattoria Vegia Zena
Vico del Serriglio, 15r, Genoa; Tel.: 010-2513332
In the centro storico on an alley right across from the aquarium, this lively, white-walled and wood-paneled room lives up to its name - dialect for Old Genoa - with expertly prepared Genovese dishes. The amusing 'octopus salami' is a good starter and pretty to boot: a thinly sliced carpaccio of pink and white octopus is piled on the plate like salami and accompanied by an octopus pate' to be spread on toasted bread. The pasta with pesto is excellent, and there's a fine selection of fresh seafood too.

Antica Latteria Giuliani
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Borgo Pio, 48, Rome; Tel.: 06-68803955
Locals gather at this antique dairy bar, the oldest in the Borgo, for the best cappuccino in the neighborhood. The 19th century marble tables are the real thing; a good place for a snack after visiting nearby St. Peter's basilica or the Vatican Museums. And if you smile at the barman, he might put a smiley face in the foam on your cappuccino!
